2nd Run 2-DAY MASTERCLASS

PROPERTY ASSET HEALTH MANAGEMENT
Strategy & Health Monitoring Framework

» Qualified for 14 PDUs by PE Board

BACKGROUND TO MASTERCLASS

Property assets are sizable investments; they also incur high operating cost and affect organisational performance and image. They must thus be strategically managed to ensure their functional and technical health at optimal costs to achieve the highest possible tangible and non-tangible returns from them.

Central to the management strategy is maintenance of asset health and delivery of value-add services. Achieving this mission is however increasingly challenged by inevitable cost increases due to factors such as enhanced health and safety regulations, asset ageing, more defective new buildings, sustainability requirements and rising user expectations. Maintenance budgets on the other hand continue to be trimmed on the belief that it does not significantly impact asset health and operations and longer term life cycle costs.

The consequences of insufficient maintenance funding are unfortunately not immediately visible. Attempts to quantify maintenance neglect and impact on asset health are hampered by a lack of information on asset condition and the inability to predict measureable performance and condition decline. Guiding principles are hence required to deliver consistent and optimised maintenance services across all assets and asset types to meet often conflicting user-technical-cost parameters.

OBJECTIVES OF MASTERCLASS

The Master Class will impart the knowledge, skills and tools to implement the Property Asset Health Management Strategy and Health Monitoring Framework shown below. This structured approach ensures asset functional and technical health to meet organisational-business needs and service requirements at optimal costs over service life.

Elements in Strategic Property Asset Health

Elements covered will include Asset Health Policy, Maintenance Standards and a Condition-Based/Predictive Maintenance Framework which is underpinned by an objective condition assessment system modelled after Dutch Standard NEN 2767, believed to a ‘world first’ to resolve the inevitable subjectivity in inspections.

The Master Class will be delivered through interactive presentations. Class size will be kept small to facilitate roundtable discussions.
