    Traditionally at City of Wanneroo we have completed data validation and condition assessment in house, however  due to resourcing constraints we have decided to outsource. The plan is to complete all assets on a five year cycle (so 20% per year).
    What consultants do people recommend using for Parks data validation and condition assessment.

    Hi Kirsten,
    I guess you need to specify which standard these consultants should be using, since normally training (and in some cases even certification on an approach) is required.
    So not every firm with a good reputation, may be qualified to do the type of work you're requiring. This can of course be solved by additional training, yet normally that's not part of the job.
    I recommend selecting on CEN/TS 17385 as an adequate standard, with the NEN 2767-2 as an add-on for damage identification.

    Best regards,
    Geert Henk

    Hi Kirsten

    I have used AGIS (Geospatial asset management experts ( in the past for Data Validation and Condition Assessment of Recreation and Open Space infrastructure. They are very thorough and produce very high-quality data. They provide every information in a GIS file hyperlinked to photographs. This makes your life easy as you can visualise where assets are and see their general condition by checking photos. They also provide you with the valuation methodology and unit rates which you can present to your auditors. I was really impressed with the quality of the data produced by this company.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind Regards
