Planned Preventive Maintenance Services

Planned Preventive Maintenance ('PPM') or Scheduled Maintenance is any variety of scheduled maintenance to plant and building equipment. Specifically, PPM is a scheduled service carried out by competent and suitable engineers to ensure that the items of equipment is operating correctly and to therefore avoid any unscheduled breakdown and downtime.

Together with Condition Based Maintenance, Planned maintenance comprises preventive maintenance, in which the maintenance event is pre-planned, and all future maintenance is pre-programmed. Planned maintenance is created for every item separately according to manufacturer's recommendation or legislation. Plan can be based on equipment running hours, date based etc. A good example of a planned maintenance program is car maintenance, where time and distance determine fluid change requirements. A good example of Condition Based Maintenance is the oil pressure warning light that provides notification that you should stop the vehicle because failure will occur because engine lubrication has stopped.

So what do we deliver? Bespoke strategic maintenance and repair solutions for building electrical, mechanical, heating etc to ensure that the building operates to its full potential.

Planned preventive maintenance is about removing surprises and maximising efficiency. Our building surveyors deliver this, making sure replacement components - from simple ring mains to complex air conditioning systems - are installed in a programmed way to minimise disruption and downtime.
