Barker Associates offers the full range of surveys and expert services in relation to commercial property, from pre-acquisition to disposal.
Please view our individual services below or contact us to discuss your requirements.
Prior to the purchase of a commercial property, we provide a thorough pre-acquisition survey, addressing the property’s present condition and assessing repair needs and risks as well as liabilities so that future expenditure may be anticipated and managed.
We offer advice across a range of commercial property types, from offices and industrial units to shops and licensed premises.
We undertake a thorough inspection to provide a detailed report. We present a summary of prioritised information setting out likely areas of risk and potential liability. Your specific needs can be accommodated so that your plans for the future can be appraised.
Thanks to our broad base of in-house expertise, we can provide feasibility studies and development appraisals for extension, refurbishment or development.
We have many years of experience in various forms of large-scale surveys and are skilled in presenting survey data in a variety of ways to suit client needs. We produce and manage building condition information for around 500,000 sqm of building stock annually.
The scope of such surveys can be set on a bespoke basis. Information can be summarised and presented in many ways dependent on the needs of the individual client.
Barker Associates is also at the forefront of providing cloud-based condition survey information, offering increased levels of detail, interrogation and reporting options. This can also align and integrate with other client ICT systems.
If the condition of a building requires recording, when taking a lease, letting a building, or prior to building works, we offer a careful, thorough and well-presented schedule of condition.
Rebuilding cost assessments are often required for insurance and other purposes. We have access to up-to-date pricing information and formally qualified quantity surveyors to provide a diligent service and accurate cost advice.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) states that if you are an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you are responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.
Barker Associates has NEBOSH trained fire-risk assessors capable of undertaking fire-risk assessments of a range of commercial, educational, residential and industrial buildings to ensure you meet the requirements of this order.
The Equality Act 2010 sets out requirements for employers and building users with the aim of protecting individuals with a disability from unfair treatment, whilst promoting a fairer and more equal society.
We are able to undertake access audits on a wide range of buildings to ensure that they are accessible and appropriate to all user needs.
Using the latest drone technology, high-resolution cameras and CAA certified operatives we can undertake detailed aerial surveys to operate in even the most congested and inaccessible areas.
Our surveys can capture both high resolution imagery and highly-accurate geospatial survey in even the most challenging locations in a fraction of the time taken by traditional survey methods.
`Such professionalism, mindfulness are rarely found in industry nowadays so were greatly appreciated and I will have no hesitation of recommending you to anyone requiring a survey in the future.’
