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.
