Six-Facet Surveys

Our six-facet surveying service delivers core information required by the NHS EstateCODE and provides our NHS clients with the data required on which to base intelligent decisions about the future of an estate. The service enables clients to confidently appraise their estates with regards to fitness of purpose in terms of use, condition and compliance. From this information, an estates strategy can be devised.

Our Service

AA Projects has extensive experience in delivering six-facet surveys and in working with a variety of NHS organisations. The service can be adapted to suit the needs of individual clients and delivered in a wide variety of formats to enable ongoing utilisation and monitoring by Estates Managers. The six facets which are assessed and ranked during the survey are:

  • Facet 1 - Physical Condition Survey (Fabric & M&E)
  • Facet 2 - Statutory Compliance Audit (inc. Fire)
  • Facet 3 - Space Utilisation Audit
  • Facet 4 - Functional Suitability Review
  • Facet 5 - Quality Audit
  • Facet 6 - Environmental Management Audit

A rating is identified for each survey aspect and risk assessments undertaken. Budget costs and a programme of work are supplied for all remedial works required to bring each facet up to a safe and sound condition. We use cutting edge technology and the service is delivered by experienced survey teams and auditors.


Our six-facet survey provides clients with accurate assessments of the current estate along with costed options for compliance, backlog maintenance and improvement. We understand the importance of working alongside clients to support with the increasing demands to manage reduced budgets, prioritise maintenance, eliminate risk and continually improve their overall assets.
