Building Care


Building care encompasses everything from maintenance of a building to energy conservation and range of approaches, including the effects on design.

A range of approaches to looking after buildings and their users is covered in this book. The rationale and conditions that support them (e.g. PPM - preventative planned maintenance; JIT - just in time) are explained, together with the commercial and environmental imperatives driving new approaches to building care.
