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.

Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust Projects

We are pleased to continue our long term relationship with the Royal County Hospital in Guildford Surrey. We are currently working on a dozen or more projects for the Trust, the most notable of which are refurbishment of the Pathology Laboratories, a new Maternity Operating Theatre and Special Care Baby Unit, refurbishment of the operating theatres and converting various spaces into office accomodation. These are challenging projects, involving many stakeholders, in complex live hospital environments.
