Building Maintenance Management, Second Edition

With the increasing cost of new-build, effective maintenance of existing building stock is becoming ever more important and building maintenance work now represents nearly half of total construction output in the UK.

Building Maintenance Management, Second Edition

Building Maintenance Management provides a comprehensive profile of the many aspects of property maintenance. This second edition has been updated throughout, with sections on outsourcing; maintenance planning; benchmarking and KPIs; and current trends in procurement routes (including partnering and the growth of PFI) integrated into the text. There is also a new chapter on the changing context within which maintenance is carried out, largely concerned with its relationship to facilities management. More coverage is given of maintenance organisations and there are major updates to relevant aspects of health and safety and to contract forms.

Thoroughly revised for the latest aviation industry changes and FAA regulations, this comprehensive reference explains how to establish and run an effi cient, reliable, and cost-effective aircraft maintenance program.

The maintenance manager for a large private school recently asked me for strategic advice to organise the programming and procurement of repairs to its large portfolio of school buildings. I wish I had read this book at the time!

The regulatory aspects of building maintenance are well covered. Legislative requirements for maintenance are succinctly set out, with a simple summary of the major Acts and Regulations particularly affecting the workplace and the health and safety of occupants.

In an era when sustainability and the efficient use of the world's resources have become paramount considerations, this book highlights practical ways of putting these principles into practice. Through effective management of building maintenance, both human and material resources can be best used and the longevity of our building stock maximised.

In addition to updating the previous historical and statistical data and tables, the second edition expands on and adds to case studies based on current maintenance-related events. Several numerical examples and explanations are revised in order to enhance the clarity of the methodology. The second edition introduces the readers to the state-of-the-art concepts of the Internet of Things (IoT), smart sensors, and their application to maintenance and TPM.

Dr. Matthew P. Stephens is a professor in the School of Engineering Technology at Purdue University, where he conducts his research and teaches courses in total productive maintenance (TPM) management, facilities planning, statistical quality control, and design of experiments (DOE). Stephens holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Southern Illinois University and the University of Arkansas, with specialization in operations management and statistics. Prior to joining academe, Stephens spent nine years with several manufacturing and business enterprises, including flatbed trailer and washer and dryer manufacturers. He also has been extensively involved as a consultant with a number of major manufacturing companies. Stephens has numerous publications to his credit in the areas of productivity, quality improvements, and lean production systems. He is the author of Manufacturing Facilities Design and Material Handling, Sixth Edition (Purdue University Press, 2019). Stephens has served various professional organizations including the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE), and the American Society for Quality, where he attained his training in CQE and Six Sigma.

The goal of this significantly expanded and updated second edition remains unchanged: to provide a succinct, accessible review of all the major areas in the management of the maintenance function. Whatever the topic, the example, whether it is 5S or TPM, or even how to run a storeroom, whenever you need a quick update, you will get it here.

The second edition includes five entirely new chapters, including Dealing with Contracts, 5S, Lean Maintenance, PM Optimization, and Fire Fighting, which all reflect up-to-the-minute concerns of maintenance departments.

Now in its second edition and written by a highly acclaimed maintenance professional, the Handbook of Maintenance Management is comprehensive and an easy-to-understand resource. It provides a short review of all the major discussions going on in the management of the maintenance function.

This text addresses in great detail the requirements for designing, implementing, and managing programs and procedures for the maintenance of major building elements from the foundation to the roof, including interior and exterior support systems and sitework elements. Topics include facilities as assets, major renovations, preventative maintenance, special maintenance considerations, and designing for building maintenance.

The specialist contributors to this enlarged second edition of Building maintenance and preservation, emphasise the importance of adequate consideration of maintenance at the design stage as well as the need for properly planned maintenance throughout the life of the building.

As stated earlier, the overall objectives of a maintenance program should be to maintain the capability of a system while controlling the cost. Within a manufacturing facility, these objectives or goals can be divided into two main categories: primary and secondary goals.

The facilities operations and property management fields will require a thorough understanding of the construction and maintenance process. This is accomplished by utilizing trade-specific software for estimating, project management, and preventative maintenance. The training will also include computer simulations which provide students both problem solving and troubleshooting skills. The curriculum provides hands-on activities to augment and complete the education of the student.

This one-year college technical certificate program in Building Maintenance and Management prepares individuals who are responsible for the day-to-day maintenance and operational tasks that support a commercial or multi-family facility. Santa Fe College has partnered with local business and industry and developed a program to support the growing need for building maintenance employees. The building maintenance program provides coverage for the areas of residential wiring, plumbing and other trades required of an entry-level building maintenance technician, including the basic hands-on skills and the more advanced theoretical knowledge needed to gain job proficiency. In addition to electrical and plumbing, other topics such as customer service skills, carpentry, painting, appliance repair, pest prevention, groundskeeping and equipment, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, swimming pools, along with many other aspects of building maintenance. The program format is intended to be engaging to learn and lots of fun.

Facilities management is ripe for disruption: it lags behind other functions such as production equipment maintenance by both digital maturity and penetration of technology. Although technology is available for facilities management, several obstacles have inhibited adoption, such as a lack of digital skills within the function, other priorities for leadership, and a focus on continuous cost cutting. These factors have made the facilities management outsourcing market attractive for leading vendors that were already engaged directly or indirectly with this function. Several incumbents have developed an integrated facilities management offering in an effort to capture a greater market share.

We have learned tragically the importance of building maintenance in the incident of the Chaplain Tower South condo collapse. While most churches are not 12 stories high, there are lessons to be learned through this tragedy about the importance of taking care of church property.

In the second and third generations, new technology and developments in failure theory helped to put the focus on predictive maintenance. This type of maintenance is part of the same family as preventive maintenance. However, predictive maintenance uses condition-monitoring tools and techniques and asset information to track real-time and historical equipment performance so you can anticipate failure before it happens. Since predictive maintenance aims to give you an ideal window for proactive maintenance tasks, it can help minimize the time equipment is being maintained, the production hours lost to maintenance, and the cost of spare parts and supplies.

Access Services staff, especially those in circulation, often act as the conduit for space management and library building maintenance. Overseeing the evolving physical aspects of a library can encompass a variety of challenges. The access services department possesses a unique perspective from its frontline service point and can oversee certain facility-related issues within a library operation. 041b061a72
