A failing roof has the potential to cause major disruption to a school’s day to day operations. However, in the main, roofs simply do not fail suddenly but degrade over a period of time, and often unexpected damage occurs when a roof has not been properly monitored or maintained.
The premise of CIF is to address urgent condition needs to ensure the learning environment is safe and secure for pupils and teachers alike. This includes non-compliance to Building Regulations and deficient building condition. Often the costs of necessary works are too high for schools to cover alone.
Utilising an asset management partner to understand the condition of a substantial asset, both in size and cost, such as a flat roof, can help obtain data to identify and prioritise areas of concern.
At Langley we can help MATs, stand-alone academies and sixth-forms to efficiently secure a successful CIF bid by carrying out comprehensive roof condition surveys to grade roof estates from urgent action necessary to no remedial works needed.
Langley partners with the sector’s leading consultants and can demonstrate real world examples of current and past success.
