& Academics:
With the motto of ""doing it right the first time"", this book focuses on spearheading the integration of designers, constructors and Facility Management, by providing easy-to-read tables summarising knowledge learned from past mistakes and maintainability benchmarks. Based on the predictive/preventive approach, the tables serve to define acceptable standards in design, construction and operation practices, to ensure the standard and quality of design, construction and maintenance practices for high maintainability at the outset of the planning/design stage. The text covers technical issues related to major components of a facility for basements, wet areas, fa├žades, common areas, roofs and M&E.
