School surveys begin
Aecom surveyors have this week begun school data gathering as part of the largest building surveying project in the UK.
Under the Education Funding Agency’s (EFA’s) condition data collection (CDC) programme, for which Aecom was contracted earlier this year, the company will visit around 5,500 schools in England over the next three years to collect condition and management data that will help the EFA prioritise its capital spending. It will also provide schools with useful condition data about their sites.
At its peak, Aecom teams will make approximately 100 school site visits every week. The first eight school visits are being made this week.
Aecom worked with the EFA on a pilot phase to help develop the data collection methodology and create the technical manuals and guides that are now being used by every surveyor and engineer working on the programme.
Richard Shinfield, Aecom’s business unit lead, said: “Developing a comprehensive picture of the condition of all school buildings in England is vital to help target future investment where it is needed most.”
