The benefits of Planned Preventative Maintenance are well known, however the differences in quality of maintenance and scope of items included can vary widely from site to site.

Given that the cost of such maintenance over the life of an installation can often exceed the original capital cost it is essential that the building owner procures the best value for money in selecting, employing and managing a suitable maintenance contractor.

The Robin Primrose Partnership can review existing contract arrangements to ensure that charges are reasonable and that the scope of maintenance contract suits the usage for that site. Where appropriate, new contracts can be negotiated or tendered on the owners’ behalf to provide optimum servicing arrangements at the best value.

To maximise the economic life of plant and minimise interruptions to normal service resulting from unplanned maintenance it is crucial that the necessary PPM activities are properly and punctually carried out. The Robin Primrose Partnership can provide appraisal reports to ensure that maintenance schedules are being accurately followed.
