Consistent Condition Assessments

Executive Summary

This paper is about seeking clarity and consistency in defining the condition of college estates.

It underlines the importance of collating reliable data on the condition of the college estate, allowing the data to be analysed and compiled to both form a national picture and a benchmark for individual colleges.

After re-stating the commonly accepted condition categories used in the FE sector, it expands on the categories and offers some testing questions to assist in applying the categories consistently.

The appendices provide case study examples, and advice on commissioning surveys.
