Maintenance responsibility guide

18 January 2012

A new guide has been launched to replace Condition Survey of Building Services AG 4/2000 and is aimed at those who have the responsibility for maintaining buildings.


Maintenance is vital to ensure a building can operate in accordance with its core function and also plays an important role in reducing carbon emissions from buildings. A condition survey will document and assess the state of each individual item of a building’s assets.

‘Condition Surveys and Asset Data Capture’ outlines the benefits of having a good knowledge of assets and describes how by having a greater understanding of their condition, they can be maintained in a more efficient and economical way. Regular condition surveys and asset data capture will help the maintenance and facility management staff plan for future maintenance, replacement and refurbishment needs. The knowledge gathered will enable staff to identify and prioritise future works and assess the financial commitments required over a set period of time.

The guide delivers practical advice on the most suitable type of survey, takes you through how to do the survey, undertake non-destructive testing and grading. Chapters cover:
The value of asset data
Level of survey
How to do a condition survey
Non-destructive testing
Grading
Survey toolkit
Hard copies of ‘Condition Surveys and Asset Data Capture (BG35/2012)’ will be available to order until 27th January 2012 at pre-launch price of £25 (full price or £30) to BSRIA members or £50 (full price £60) to non-members. A pdf will also be available at £60 full price or free to BSRIA members. Checklists in word format are attached to the pdf and can be downloaded from the BSRIA website.
