The formulation of a Planned Maintenance Programme (PMP) gives the building owner and / or maintenance provider a management tool which can be used to set in motion a maintenance and improvement strategy.
Having a PMP in place is the keystone to ensuring that the requirements of the property are understood, the necessary works are planned for and a sustainable financial plan is adopted to ultimately enhance the lifecycle and longevity of the building.
When drawing up a PMP, consideration is given to various factors including
- Best Practice
- Technological Advances
- Financial Parameter
- Services Provision
- Legal Constraints
Each brief will be different, so it is imperative that as chartered building surveyors we are not overly dictatorial but moreover we concentrate on working with our clients to understand their particular goals and challenges to ensure that any PMP remains flexible to the clients sometimes changing priorities.
