Manage your maintenance costs
Effective maintenance ensures that buildings function optimally at competitive cost. You can manage these maintenance costs with a multi-year maintenance plan. You have integral and short/longer term in sight into these maintenance costs and can align your policy in this respect accordingly.
A multi-year maintenance plan and accompanying list with architectural and technical installation elements indicates the costs of necessary (heavy) maintenance and the anticipated replacement investments. The planning horizon of a multi-year maintenance plan is usually 15-30 years. This enables you to take necessary maintenance investments into account.
Careful maintenance lengthens the technical life of architectural and technical installation components. Remedial and preventive maintenance carried out by professional parties and in compliance with all applicable standards ensures that the installations continue to function properly. Periodic maintenance prevents wear-and-tear, disruptions and security issues, by carrying out portfolio inspections too late for example, and diminishes the risk of unexpected complaints or damage – and thereby financial setbacks.
A condition measurement (NEN 2767) objectively determines the technical condition of buildings and components. The measurement results assist in the drawing up of a multi-year maintenance plan. The maintenance condition and the desired maintenance level are mapped during this process. A condition measurement helps to set priorities at a strategic and tactical level, to take substantiated decisions about the desired maintenance level and the allocation of maintenance budgets.
Are you already in possession of a sustainability recommendation (such as an energy-savings scan, EPA-U Customised advice or a complete sustainability) for the building? In that event, your multi-year maintenance plan can be supplemented with investments in the sustainability of the building. It is all about saving energy, creating a healthy indoor climate and (future) re-use of replaced components, otherwise known as circular maintenance.
In order to ensure the sustainability of your property as efficiently as possible, it is advisable to focus on the natural substitution period of building and installation components and review the total cost of ownership (TCO): a combination of economic lifespan, the required (additional) investments and the payback period for sustainable measures. By processing this in a multi-year maintenance plan, you can create your own sustainable multi-year maintenance plan.
