Quinquennial Survey Inspection

Galbraith regularly undertake quinquennial surveys and were appointed to prepare one for St Mary Scottish Episcopal Church and Rectory to create an accurate record of the condition of the church and manse, so the client can use it as a reference over the long term to plan and budget for maintenance and repairs.

The report provides recommendations on maintenance cycles for key building elements to allow their full life to be estimated and achieved. This information will help avoid costly and unnecessary reactive works, and ensure that budgets can be managed and funding planned for specific elements of work.

The church Rectory was due to be vacated shortly after our inspection and we were able to extend our report to help advise the church committee on maintenance they might to consider in addition to the cyclical maintenance.  This was with a view to upgrading the property to more modern standards and meeting appropriate statutory requirements.
