Building owners and managers who do not regularly perform preventive maintenance measures for buildings and equipment will see the life cycle of those assets slashed significantly. In fact, those who defer maintenance can count on paying several times more than the total repair cost in the future. 

This webinar will discuss solutions to proactively manage the growing list of maintenance needs that building owners and managers face today. Owners and managers not only end up paying more for repairs that have been delayed, they may end up on a downward spiral resulting in difficulty selling or leasing properties.

Hear a discussion on best practices in performing regular facility assessments. You will learn how to use Life Cycle Cost Data to plan and budget for future repairs, and predict how costs will escalate over time. Learn how to use the cost data to make a business case to others to tackle preventive maintenance needs to avoid future backlogs.
