Market Leading Condition Surveys

Drake and Kannemeyer conceived the idea of Condition Surveys for Public Sector estates, carrying out surveys of the health estate and a pilot survey of 8 UK Universities. In 1992, their joint venture company KDK carried out the survey of all UK Universities comprising 13 million square metres of estates in a 4-month contract.

To date, the practice has appraised over one quarter of the entire hospital stock in England and Wales, in excess of 120 Universities and also a number of historic buildings such as The Tower of London and the Royal Maritime Museum. We have also surveyed the Government's Science Estate on a number of occasions across the whole of the country. In the last year our larger surveys have been The University of Leeds, Brunel University, Kent & Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust, The National Archives, Kew Gardens, Kent & Meway Towns Fire Authority and the STFC Physics Estate.

Our core business continues to be the survey of Condition, Statutory Compliance with risk assessments, Functional Suitability and other associated estate surveys. Our professionalism, experience and integrity has resulted in many of our Clients still working with us 36 years later. We continue to be one of the main providers of condition surveys in the sector, as can be seen from the list of recent clients.
