Developing a Building Maintenance Team

For companies involved in properties, facilities and buildings, developing a team that will monitor and maintain your assets is very crucial. There are different areas in building maintenance that can be easily overlooked unless a well-planned program is developed and a team is organized to execute it. As opposed to what others think, cleaning and repairs are not the only things that are required here, buildings and facilities must also be kept safe from inside and outside hazards. If your team has no building maintenance training, they might be missing out on the important details of their job.

A building maintenance team must be headed by a coordinator to oversee the strict implementation of your company’s maintenance program. He or she will be the one to choose or hire and manage his maintenance team. The coordinator will also be responsible for assigning tasks to each of the members and he or she may develop necessary sub-teams to enhance their sense of responsibility and accountability. Your maintenance coordinator must also be able to clearly define these tasks and delegate them to his respective members accordingly. The whole team may undergo training on building maintenance to improve their skills and mastery of the fields they are assigned to. With proper training, they will be able to provide professional service to reduce the risks of accidents and hazards. Additionally, you will also enhance your property’s safety, quality and functionality.

Still property or building maintenance is not only planning and execution of your program. You have to monitor and assess your team to learn about the effectiveness and other areas that needs improvement. Operational tasks also need to be evaluated randomly or as scheduled for the management to come up with appropriate assessment for the team and the program implemented. Both the building maintenance team and the company need to keep track of the scheduled maintenance jobs, apply random tests and create an emergency plan. With proper training and experience, your building maintenance team will be able to adjust to the changing needs and evolving requirements of the company, the building’s occupants as well as the governing statues in your area.
