This two-day course teaches attendees how to plan, budget, and
estimate the cost of ongoing and preventive maintenance and
repair for existing buildings and grounds.
|There are more than 10,000 maintenance, repair and preventive
maintenance tasks for all types of facilities. With advances in
telecommunications, computers and other workplace technologies,
the list is growing rapidly. In a downsized, fiscally
conservative environment, facilities are seen as vital capital
assets that affect employee productivity. The demands for
technical expertise, and cost-effective plant
operations have increased dramatically.
Using data developed in cooperation with the Army Corps of
Engineers and Applied Management Engineering, this course teaches the most financially favorable
maintenance, repair and replacement estimating
for virtually every building system. Attendees learn
step-by-step proven methods for auditing facilities; for preventive planning that helps avoid costly breakdown and remediation; associated
equipment, material and crew costing; determining both in-house
and contract-out service costs; and assembling all this data
into a defensible annual, asset-protecting M&R plan. Practice
exercises provide skill-building opportunities.
Facility Managers, Maintenance Supervisors, Buildings and
Grounds Superintendents, Plant Managers, Planners, Estimators...
and others involved in facilities planning and budgeting.
