A planned preventative maintenance (PPM) schedule is designed to help ensure that owners, tenants, landlords and asset managers are all protected when it comes to the maintenance and management of a property.
An article for the Scotsman recently highlighted the benefits of having a PPM schedule in place at a property, noting that the main benefits are in terms of costs, management oversight and compliance with different legislation.
One of the main things that a PPM does is set out a timetable for maintenance and repairs. This means that everyone involved can plan for the work and set aside any capital that’s required to complete it.
From the perspective of a tenant, it’s useful to have a PPM schedule because it will clearly set out the costs and what your responsibilities are.
For a landlord or managing agent, a PPM schedule not only demonstrates that you care about the quality of the building that you’ll be renting out, but also acts as a basis for any maintenance or service charge that you’ll levy.
“It will help enable an owner to maintain a building’s value and a PPM is usually an essential part of due diligence information in a sale or purchase,” the news provider asserted.
Another thing that owners and occupiers of commercial buildings need to bear in mind is security. Which-50 recently pointed out that this aspect has become more challenging for businesses since the introduction of smart buildings.
Many smart buildings use the internet of things to improve everything from energy efficiency to the user experience, but if these online networks aren’t secure it can present risks from a cyber security perspective.
