It is important that buildings continue to be properly maintained to ensure that they can function as efficiently and effectively and possible in supporting the delivery of a wide range of services. At the same time, the deterioration of buildings due to the lack of maintenance could lead to future financial burdens, pose legal and other industrial relations issues and affect the delivery of service. Therefore, the maintenance of buildings is critical to the proper management of physical assets and the overall management of capital to achieve agency outputs and institutional outcomes. Identifying building problems and understanding of building materials, its mechanical and electrical systems are aspects of the process of preserving and considering building quality and to ensure the efficiencies of the facilities. At the same time, other main causes of building maintenance problems are fungal stain and harmful growth, erosion of mortar joints, poor installation of air-conditioning systems, defects in plastered wall, crack walls and leaning walls, defective rainwater goods system, decayed floor board, insect and termites attack, roof defects. This workshop is designed to teach best practices in maintenance of building and prevents problems that may occur in future. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the common cause of building defects
- Develop a framework for the management of maintenance required to provide a consistent approach to the planning, management and reporting of building maintenance
- Understand the mechanical and electrical systems associated with building facilities and the common building defects problems
