Ascension Island | Ascension Island

Trident was engaged to help our client form a long-term budget plan for the maintenance of a wide range of properties ranging from constructions made over 150 years old, created using local materials (volcanic rock), as well as more recent, prefabricated properties.

Trident sent a team of six surveyors to the island to report on the structural and cosmetic elements of the properties. Using PropTech, Trident was able to provide the Ascension Island Government (AIG) with completed reports of each property within 24 hours of inspection, having been QA’d by colleagues in the UK prior to release.

On returning to the UK, the island team provided AIG with an overall cost for the maintenance works required as well as costs broken down by sector and the timescale of the required repairs.
