The Education Funding Agency has announced the surveying firms appointed to conduct the CDC Programme – its largest ever condition data collection programme – designed to collect data from 22,000 schools in England over a three year period.
As the chosen software solution (announced in autumn 2016) all of the appointed surveyors – AECOM, Faithful & Gould, Capita and RLB – will utilise Kykloud technology to undertake this ambitious project
Hugely respected in their field and leaders in the innovative use of technology in surveying, the teams of surveyors are already conducting pilots in anticipation of the official project launch.
In fact, three of the four surveying firms appointed to conduct this -one of the largest public sector condition assessment programmes ever undertaken – already use Kykloud technology across parts of their business so recognise the huge benefits it brings.
The data collected from the site visits will provide the Education Funding Agency with an improved and up to date evidence base which will help inform future funding allocations and help direct investment to the areas with the greatest condition need.
The information that is gathered will include high level contextual data about the school, the site and the buildings within it, condition data for each building and information about key building management and compliance documentation that is available.
It really is one of the most innovative and largest projects of its kind in the UK. Surveyors from all four leading surveying firms will use Kykloud’s condition assessment and asset management technology, in order to provide the EFA with the knowledge and data they require to make informed decisions about maintenance and capital spend for years to come.
