23 Dec Building Maintenance Should Become a Priority in 2021
There is truly no substitution for good maintenance. The very efficiency of a business is tied up with keeping up-to-date with its building’s proper care and preservation. Think of how the health of your employees is maintained when air conditioning equipment is periodically inspected and properly kept up. This task in itself can eliminate harmful risks to the general welfare of your staff, one of the most important assets of any company. Then of course there are the financial benefits that can be derived. With regular maintenance, you assure that equipment is not damaged unnecessarily and can be repaired in a timely manner, thus extending its life cycle and avoiding needless expenditure on replacements. Not to mention, if the essentials tools for the job at hand are kept in working order, there is no need for disrupting a workday with any sort of breakdown. And we don’t even have to begin to explain how maintenance on a regular basis will be beneficial to future insurance claim needs.
At DDD Group, we believe that our involvement in the needs of your project does not end with the completion of construction. We want to give your structures the ability to have a complete life-cycle and thus prove to be a worthwhile investment. With the incorporation of modern technology in our methodology, we can create projections of possible situations your structure can encounter and how best to prepare, prevent, and deal with them successfully. Among the evaluations we can perform are:
- Energy Consumption Audits: An energy audit is an assessment of your structure that takes a look at current energy consumption and then identifies energy efficiency measures that you can take to make your structure more efficient. At DDD, we are focused on efficiency and sustainability, which equips our team to identify sound and practical strategies for building owners and managers to reduce consumption, and thus cut down on operating cost without putting too much stress on your operations.
- Security System Audits: A physical security risk assessment is a thorough inspection of all the physical security elements of your office or building, including natural and territorial components, access control systems, and surveillance systems. Physical security auditing is essential to protecting any building or business. Even if you already have security systems and strategies in place, a thorough physical security assessment can uncover some unexpected gaps or shortcomings. A physical security audit will not only evaluate your technology systems for intrusion detection; it can also provide key insights into how to improve your overall building safety between the perimeter and the front door.
- Structure Analysis and Maintenance Feasibility: A feasibility study is an engineering study to help determine whether or not the project should be advanced to the final engineering and production/construction stage. A feasibility study identifies significant risks facing your project, considers all viable options for achieving your project’s objectives, and explores alternative project scopes in order to provide you the best value solution.
- Systems Inventorying, Repair, Replacement, and Maintenance: Typically, Real Property includes land and anything permanently affixed to it, such as buildings, their installed systems, building equipment, and can also include roads, parking facilities, fences, utility systems, structures, etc. Real Property Inventory (RPI) is a record of an organization’s real property asset (land, building, or structure). Real Property Asset Management (RPAM) is a program for collecting and maintaining a real property inventory. RPAM provides data to manage those assets and meet asset recording and reporting requirements.
