Estate Condition Survey

Blackburn College

Cube’s role:
Building Surveyors


As part of Blackburn College’s Master Plan to remodel and upgrade their property assets, Cube was commissioned to inspect and prepare a detailed condition survey of the entire estate (500,000 sq ft plus). 

The survey covered the internal and external fabric of the buildings, with specific reference to the status of repair, budget costs, legislation requirements, M&E assessments and suggested remedial action.  This information was compiled within a database and used by the College to update their Asset Management Plan, determining a strategy for remodelling, refurbishment and redevelopment proposals.

The typical estate properties included a 6th Form block, Creative Arts building, 1960’s – 7 storey concrete frame building, Grade II Arts and Craft building, Vehicle Workshops, Leisure, Theatre and general Administration space.
