Long Term Maintenance

Definition of maintenance: Activities required or undertaken to conserve as nearly, and as long, as possible the original condition of an asset or resource while compensating for normal wear and tear.


Long term maintenance consists of surveying assets around the campus to determine the life cycle status of each item and the cost to replace them. This is linked with the asset management process, whereby any assets identified as requiring maintenance will either be incorporated into the long term maintenance schedule or the planned preventative maintenance calendar, depending on the severity of the condition.
