BSRIA launches business-focused maintenance guide

Available to purchase from the BSRIA bookshop for £40 to members, the guide is also available as a free PDF for members and e-subscribers.

BSRIA has published its new Business-Focused Guide (BG53/2016).

 

Business-focused maintenance provides the built environment industry with a methodology for utilising maintenance budgets more effectively. Assets critical to the business are maintained, while other less critical assets are managed as well as possible within the available budget.


Increasingly, organisations expect the reliability of building services to improve and that increases the requirement for better maintenance regimes.

 

Since the first edition of Business-Focused Maintenance was published in 2004, many adopters of the methodology have moved beyond the original remit of the guide. The new edition introduces a calculation methodology for the business-focused maintenance scoring which removes the element of time and also includes a guide to implementing this methodology.

 

This guide is intended for use by those who establish or implement maintenance policies or strategies but is also relevant to those who procure the services of maintenance contractors.

 

BSRIA marketing officer, Catherine England (pictured), said: “The component risk assessments included in the 2004 version have also been updated. They provide a set of typical failure modes, consequences and preventative actions for a range of building services assets and should be utilised when reviewing maintenance task content to ensure that maintenance activities addresses typical failure modes.”

 

Available to purchase from the BSRIA bookshop for £40 to members, the guide is also available as a free PDF for members and e-subscribers.

Buildings need 'breath of fresh air' approach

To mark Clean Air Day, Mark Bouldin, healthy buildings expert at Johnson Controls explains why the UK needs a new approach to clean air in buildings.

If you had the choice of breathing clean air for 90% of the time or 10% of the time, which would you choose? Well, currently, the emphasis is firmly on the 10%. From governments, campaigners and businesses, there has been a huge push to clean the air we breathe outside. And there’s no denying the importance of that. However, given the average member of the British public spends 22 hours of their day indoors, it seems negligent not to place the same level of attention on indoor air quality (IAQ).
