A Quinquennial Inspection of your buildings should be carried out every five years by your Quinquennial Architect. Following the inspection a copy of the report is sent to the Parish by the DAC. Its content and recommendations should be discussed by the PCC and a programme of work agreed to eradicate any problems highlighted.
The Buildings Advisor, Tom Beesley, will contact Parishes following receipt of the report and make arrangements for a site visit to discuss the contents of the report and the recommendations made by the architect. Following that visit the Building Advisors notes will be forwarded to the Parish, the Archdeacons and the DAC.
A self assessment of progress should be made every year throughout the Quinquennial period to highlight any outstanding items.
Parishes should work closely with their Architect, the DAC and the Buildings Adviser to ensure that any recommended repairs have a planned programme in place to carry out the work.
All quinquennial repair work will require a faculty. Please see the link to the DAC pages
for faculty advice and downloads.
