Strategic Maintenance Planning: What & Where?
Strategic Maintenance Planning (SMP) is a process formulated by King North Building Sciences, to develop a site specific or whole portfolio strategy, for addressing the long-term maintenance needs of the building envelope for the client. King North Building Sciences conducts wall and roof consulting services, by way of due diligence inspections and condition assessments. SMP takes the basic information revealed in the due diligence inspection, or condition assessment, and assesses client needs, for long-term & short-term use of the asset, including both maintenance and capital funding requirements. King North Building Sciences completes the basic engineering studies and presents the client with recommendations for addressing issues in regards to the building envelope (Walls, Roof, etc.). This strategic planning system benefits any sized portfolio - from a single building to multiple buildings.
Why do you need Strategic Maintenance Planning?
SMP is proactive preventive maintenance. When utilized properly, SMP prevents premature failure of components and/or detects the onset of failure in components. SMP reveals hidden weaknesses in components and provides other tangible benefits. SMP provides accountability. It furnishes upper and middle management with a pool of information, enabling them to make better informed decisions when assessing the maintenance performance of their buildings, and ultimately maximize the cost effectiveness of maintaining them. SMP pinpoints problem areas, and helps to extend the service life of building components, such as roof and wall systems. SMP helps to reduce both, service interruptions and eliminates down time, which means that SMP is a cost-effective tool. Once SMP is established, the client is able to monitor the performance of their portfolio from a detailed database. This would include a maintenance inventory, component inventory and ultimately a budget plan over a client determined time period ranging from 1 to 30 years.
