Mason Clark Associates are appointed to undertake condition surveys of approximately 9,000 of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s housing stock of individual dwellings. These surveys are both internal and external undertaken on a rolling programme, on approximately 2000 properties per year.
The objectives of the surveys are to identify the condition and expected lifespan of the structural and internal elements. MCA have undertaken these assessments on previous survey cycles and have in addition, determined whether the properties complied with the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) and the Decent Homes Standard.
The data gathered is used to determine life cycle costings and future levels of investment into capital improvement and maintenance programmes.
