Tips and tricks for quick and accurate surveys


From our most experienced surveyor, Peter, adopt this useful method of surveying so as not to miss anything: Start at the top of the room, and work downwards, when surveying a room, do not stand still, walk in a clockwise direction while collecting the components, and then in an anti-clockwise direction when doing the condition grading, this gives you two views/chances to pick up survey the material then the finish. Bring components into rooms, rather than in large areas.



Why writing an AMP can be challenging?


We continually hear stories about how hard it is to write an asset management plan.

Programs by SPM Assets will help bring your Annual Plan and LTP alive


LTP stands for Long Term Plan which is a legislative requirement for local government organisations in New Zealand. All asset intensive organisations (rather than just Councils) need a longer term strategical plan – this is one of the key outcomes from the asset management planning process, i.e. a plan which is part of your wider vision, a plan which can be shared easily, a plan which can be altered and impacts analysed, a plan which can be adopted and monitored over time.
