Managing and maintaining premises

130918 Maintenance PicThere are many issues to consider before you move and while in occupation

Some of the key questions include:

  • Do you need to do any alterations and improvements?  If so, how to project manage them
  • Which policies, procedures and systems do you need to have in place?
  • How do you ensure promote equality and accessibility, and ensure your building can be used by all sections of the population?
  • Are you going to hire or let out space, and if so what agreements are needed?
  • How do you ensure that staff, management committee members and volunteers have the skills needed to run the building successfully?
  • How to budget – running costs and income
  • How to keep the premises well maintained
  • How to deal with repairs
