Do you know your organization’s maintenance approach? This area is often overlooked; it lacks glamour and
excitement but is incredibly important to the responsible stewardship of your public buildings and assets. Ideally, you want to have the right mix of strategies to ensure your equipment is kept in proper working order for the duration of the operational life expectancy it is designed for. Unfortunately, studies show this is not how a lot of organizations manage their assets. Instead, many wait for component failure and then take action to repair or replace.
All equipment requires some periodic maintenance to run efficiently and ensure the component is able to meet its design life expectancy. Finding the best balance of corrective, preventive, and predictive maintenance is key. The right maintenance strategy will minimize repair costs and downtime plus provide a safe, healthy environment that ensures occupant comfort.
