Quinquennial Surveys

Whether you’re a member, a leader, or a property manager for a religious building, understanding the significance of these surveys is vital for the upkeep and safety of your sacred space.

Knowing that your property is in good condition brings peace of mind to congregants, staff, and visitors alike. It allows everyone to focus on worship and community without worrying about safety concerns.

A Quinquennial Survey, as the name suggests, is a thorough inspection of your religious building that’s conducted every five years. These surveys cover everything from the structural integrity of the building to the functionality of its systems like heating, electrical, and plumbing.

Regular inspections help identify potential hazards like structural weaknesses, fire risks, or electrical problems, ensuring the safety of everyone who enters the building. By catching issues early, religious buildings can avoid more extensive and costly repairs down the line.

Additionally, a well-documented Quinquennial Survey report can be a valuable tool when seeking funding for maintenance and restoration projects. It provides evidence of the building’s condition and the necessity of investment in its upkeep.

This initial meeting allows our surveyors to discuss the scope and purpose of the survey, gather information about the building’s history, including previous maintenance or repair work, and any specific concerns or requirements to ensure that expectations are aligned and important details are not overlooked.



Here, our team will conduct a thorough examination of the building, both internally and externally, which may involve inspecting walls, roofs, floors, windows, doors, and other components. We’ll also check the building’s utilities to ensure they are functioning correctly and meet current safety standards.



During this stage, we will analyse the data collected during the inspection, identifying any defects, deficiencies, or areas of concern that require attention. We’ll detail our findings in a report, including prioritised recommendations for maintenance, repair, or improvement works.




Finally, we’ll hand over the report and talk you through our findings, providing guidance during those next steps, including obtaining cost estimates for recommended works, securing necessary permits or approvals, and developing a maintenance schedule to address identified issues systematically.
