The Importance of the Quality Operation & Maintenance manual
The importance of the quality O&M Manual and
the company that can provide the solution
As buildings become more technically advanced, architects and clients are demanding more from
main contractors and subcontractors in regards to their Operation and Maintenance manuals. A
higher level of detail and improved quality of information is required to ensure they get the best
level of facility / building management post construction.
O&M Manuals are not only an integral part of building handover, but are a legal obligation to comply
with 2007 CDM regulations. With the significant rise of “Green Construction” in the last 5 years;
O&M manuals also need to comply with BREEAM and LEED requirements in the industry.
The benefit of having a quality and detailed O&M manual is not only on the end user, but on the
contractors submitting the information. A US study has shown that 65 to 85% of the cost of a new
building is post construction; if this cost falls within the defect or warranty liability period, this cost
can be transferred back to the installation contractor.
