Sutherland Shire Council - Data Capture and Valuation

Sutherland Shire Council required asset data collection, condition assessment and valuation of all parks and open space assets in approximately 615 sites within the LGA.

Data Capture and Valuation

Background

Sutherland Shire Council has identified the need to develop a more robust knowledge of open space assets for renewal planning and valuation purposes.  Previously, for general park furniture, structures and other built assets, there was not considered to be a complete, reliable inventory that could be confidently used. 

Sutherland Shire Council required asset data collection, condition assessment and valuation of all parks and open space assets in approximately 615 sites within the LGA.

Scope of Services

To validated Council current asset register, capture new or missing assets and assess the condition and value of all hard assets in the parks and open spaces.

This included:

Asset Types

The project included the following Asset Classes and Asset Types.

Methodology

Aerial photography provided by Council was used to plot visible assets in the office using MapInfo.

These assets were verified and attributed during field inspections using AssetMap software, Zebra tablet computers and DGPS.

New/found assets were also captured during these inspections. Asset locations were accurate to ±0.5m from office plotting, and ±1m from field inspections.

Valuations were undertaken in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and guidelines:

Assets were given a condition rating of 1-5 based on Council guidelines, and the asset lifecycle was identified from this attribute.

Assets unable to be inspected were given a rating of 99.

Summary

A total of 25,999 assets were collected with a total value of over $170 million.

Overall, with less than 1% of the open space asset portfolio in either condition 4 or condition 5, shows that the portfolio is in an overall very good condition.

Deliverables

Data was provided to Council in Excel and ESRI Shapefile formats. The GIS data was in the GDA94 datum and projected in MGA Zone 56 coordinates.

Both spatial data in GIS format and Excel data included asset inventory information for open space assets, defects and signs.

Reports were provided in PDF format including a comprehensive Open Space Assets Inspections and Condition Report, and a General Assets summary including valuations, asset remaining/effective useful life

All deliverables were supplied via Sutherland Shire Council’s Secure File Transfer system.

“The RapidMap team was excellent, delivering the required information. I have learned a lot working with the RapidMap team and wish to work with them again. You made it so simple. Our open space data is much clearer and easier to work with than the previous data. Thank you.”
- Satish Bajracharya, Baw Baw Shire Council
"RapidMap have a very experienced and dedicated team with huge expertise in Asset Data collection. Previously we had little idea how many assets we had in open space. Now we have a very clear idea of what we have and its condition. This will be of enormous benefit in planning for the future and providing services to our community."
