Title

Evaluation of Architectural Design and Property Management in Kano Metropolis, Kano State, Nigeria

Description

The level of maintenance governs the health of a building and its durability. To facilitate easy maintenance, several components of a building should at the design stage be given careful consideration. The aim of this study is to evaluate the architectural design and show the effect it has on property management, using Kano metropolis as a case study. In attaining this, questionnaires were administered to 23 Estate surveyors and only 16 were retrieved. Interviews were also conducted amongst them. It was found out that a defective architectural design had a great challenge in property maintenance. Therefore, for a good maintenance culture and an optimum return on property, estate surveyors and valuers should be involved at the design stage for opinion and should not be left only to the hands of the architects.
