Work takes place across campus to preserve or restore buildings and base building system equipment to their original conditions or to such a condition that they can be effectively used for their intended purpose, ensuring ongoing operation.
Historical maintenance records help predict when specific base building system equipment parts need to be replaced.
Preventive Maintenance: a planned and controlled program of periodic inspection,
adjustment, lubrication, and replacement of base building system equipment and
components, as well as performance testing and analysis.
Corrective Maintenance (CM): the repair or replacement of obsolete, worn, broken, or
inoperative subcomponents or subsystems of physical infrastructure to an appropriate
condition. Can be planned or unplanned maintenance that is performed in response to
repeated requests for reactive maintenance. CM also includes the replacement of base
building system equipment that is intentionally operated to the point of failure.
Activity that comes out of a triaged response to a need that has
usually been identified and reported by facilities users and staff, evidence of base building
system equipment malfunction or failure through the building automation system (BAS).
Emergency Maintenance (EM): unscheduled corrective activities that require
immediate attention to restore a critical piece of base building system equipment whose
failure could threaten the safety of personnel or cause damage to other base building
equipment or systems.
Reactive Maintenance (RM): Unscheduled work that requires expedient action to
restore services or to remove issues that could interfere with activities or property.
Support Maintenance (SM): discretionary work that is not directly related to base
building systems equipment, components, and systems but is necessary to preserve the
mission of the University.
