Abstract

Buildings exist in order to satisfy the user’s space requirements. All activities, processes and operations must be carried out in a building for higher productivities. The essence of building maintenance is, to maximize the service life of a building, by delaying deterioration, decay and failure. Building maintenance management involves planning, directing, controlling organizing, and making use of resources for the sustenance of the building performance. A number of studies have investigated maintenance management for buildings; however, most of the studies have observed maintenance management systems that are cyclical, corrective and inspection-based. However, these practices are adversely affecting the building performance, users’ satisfaction and productivities and maintenance needs. This paper reports a study that aimed to offer an alternative maintenance management model for university buildings in Malaysia. Although the research specifically concerns university buildings, many public and private sector institutions face similar maintenance management problems. Thus, this research has broader applications. The outcome of this research is to come up with a comprehensive maintenance management model that can facilitate universities in achieving better value in their investments in building maintenance.
