Condition Surveys

The Estates Division undertakes surveys on all University pool rooms. The purpose of the surveys is to assess the condition of each room to ensure they are fit for purpose. The survey identifies deficiencies and maintenance issues. In addition it also aids informed decision making in relation to minor refurbishment projects. 

The division undertakes an assessment of each University pool room annually, and monthly a smaller selection of rooms is assessed on a rolling basis.
