Asset management and property management should be based on objective, reliable
information about the performance of buildings and building components.
Technical data collected during a condition survey on-site is needed for strategy
formulation and for maintenance planning of each estate. Supplementary technical
information is needed for the detailed planning and executing of maintenance work. In 2006 a Dutch Standard for Condition Assessment will be introduced. Well-trained building
inspectors should be able to provide property managers with objective, reliable information
about performance loss and defects of building components. Maintenance managers can
exercise control over the maintenance performance levels and maintenance costs.
Several housing associations want to use the condition data for their asset management
too. Aggregated condition data will be used for setting condition targets for assets and for
benchmarking. For benchmarking purposes the condition data could be linked to the figures of the Aedex/IPD Social Housing Property Index.
A first analysis of aggregated condition data and maintenance costs of housing estates
indicates that the relationship of these facts is not univocal. Aggregated condition marks as
well as maintenance costs should be seen as independent indicators for the technical state of housing estates. In this way the data should be used in asset management.
