Most property owners in Britain have a Capital Works Plan which is a list of buildings, systems, and improvements that need to be carried out as part of any major investment project. It is usually submitted to the local authority who approves it and makes a payment before work starts. The structures, systems, and improvements are divided into phases so companies can work on them progressively.
Capital works projects on your property include a wide range of different, yet vital, activities including building demolition and construction, drainage and irrigation, corrective services, and utility installation. When upgrading or renovating your property it is important to consider the potential impact that any upgrade or renovation may have on surrounding properties. A capital works plan will not only help you identify what needs can be met with current funding but also provide a practical framework for future planning.
