The preventive maintenance program proposed in the maintenance manual helps ensuring that all building systems and components are well maintained according to best practices and has for main objective the reduction of early failures occurrences. In some cases, the preventive maintenance program may help increasing the effectiveness of systems and extend their useful lifespan beyond typical durations, which can result in significant savings for owners. This program provides an opportunity to the manager to be in an “active” mode rather than in a “reactive” mode.
The Maintenance Manual is essentially a reference manual of all building systems and components under owner’s or manager’s liability. It describes the required actions as well as their frequency. The maintenance log, which is an integral part of the Maintenance Manual, facilitates good building management and appropriate follow up of the maintenance duties.
