Preventative Maintenance Planning

By incorporating a thorough inspection of your building and façade into your annual Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedule, you can reduce the chance of expensive reactive site maintenance work. Correcting minor problems before they become major issues can extend the longevity of individual building components and eradicate major capital expenses.

Specialists can identify any materials that are approaching the end of their life-span, giving you the ability to schedule required budgetary expenses ahead of time. Expertise in work at height further strengthens Heightsafe’s ability to highlight building weaknesses before they fail without warning – as rushed repairs can often lead to an unsatisfactory end result.


 

Façade Inspections

Small repairs can often be overlooked; however, a building’s exterior structure has many different components that work in unison to keep a building watertight and secure against the elements. By monitoring and correcting the minor problems, you can reduce the requirement for major repair and replacement works.

What may appear to be an insignificant open joint at a parapet cap, can result in a large amount of water ingress – should water be allowed to migrate down a building, steel frames can begin to rust, insulation can become damp, and wall surfacing can become displaced.

Heightsafe’s specialists recommend incorporating a Building and Façade Inspections into your PPM schedule twice annually.
