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, Royal Naval College Greenwich and the Royal Maritime Museum.
