Interesting report in the press today, regarding the proposed refurbishment to some of our national treasures. 

The question arises, why have they been allowed to get into it's current state? This question is not directed at any one person, but more that it seems that maintenance budgets for most clients, never seem to be adequate or these budgets are always the first on the list to be culled. What is clear, is that without proper investment and a proactive maintenance regime, in the long term, it will cost the building owner more.
