Countless tasks must be taken care of when owning or managing a property to ensure it remains in good condition. This is where property maintenance comes into play. From plumbing and electrical repairs to cleaning, property maintenance refers to the ongoing efforts to keep a building functioning and looking its best. However, traditional property maintenance methods are often inefficient, resulting in wasted resources and increased carbon emissions.

This blog will discuss how smart systems, precise measurements, and data analysis can revolutionise property maintenance and make it more sustainable and efficient. We’ll explore the benefits of implementing these technologies and how they can streamline tasks, reduce waste, and lower costs. Our shared knowledge will help you understand how revolutionising property maintenance will benefit property owners and the environment.


Revolutionising Property Maintenance: The Benefits of Precise Measurements and Data Analysis


Property maintenance refers to the ongoing tasks and activities necessary to keep a property in good condition, ensuring it remains safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. These tasks can include regular inspections and repairs of various systems and structures, such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC, cleaning and upkeep of interior and exterior spaces. Effective maintenance helps preserve a property’s value, prevent costly repairs and replacements, and create a welcoming and attractive environment for occupants or visitors. However, there is room for improvement and efficiency in this process. Revolutionising property maintenance involves implementing precise measurements and data analysis, which results in less waste, lost labour, and reduced carbon emissions. By leveraging technology and advanced data analysis techniques, preventive property maintenance services can be carried out more accurately and efficiently than ever, leading to significant improvements in sustainability, safety, and cost-effectiveness.

Benefits of Precise Measurements in Property Maintenance and Management


One example of how precise measurements can benefit properties is bin emptying. The property can avoid unnecessary waste and labour by measuring when bins need emptying and how frequently, rather than clearing every bin on every floor twice daily. A quarter of the data can provide better insight into the availability of service labour.

Similarly, cleaning can also benefit from staff reporting what needs to be cleaned or if they are satisfied with their workspace. For example, Deloitte in Dublin paid for cleaning services, understanding that four people would be hoovering from 06:00-10:00 and 16:00-20:00. However, the trading floor and accountancy areas usually needed more and the legal department a lot less cleaning.

Other maintenance services such as relamping, HEPA filtration testing, air handling filter replacement, power factor correction load reporting, UPS service, generator service, drainage flush/rod, pest control, HVAC, vending, restaurant menu management, recycling collections, and elevator maintenance can also benefit from precise measurements and data analysis. For example, larger premises can replace 20% of their lighting annually on rotation to prevent an outage.


The Advantages of Creating a Community of Smart Buildings


In addition to individual building improvements, creating a community of intelligent buildings on a network can provide substantial benefits. Each building can have a team of experienced operators/specialists who can add unique value to the facility. Carbon reductions of 5% in one building can be immediately transferrable to others in the same portfolio, resulting in global improvements. These changes can lead to a more sustainable and efficient future for property maintenance services. 

By revolutionising property maintenance, we can improve how we manage and maintain our built environment. With the ability to collect and analyse data, these buildings can provide valuable insights into their operations and help identify maintenance issues before they become serious problems. Using precise measurements and predictive analytics, smart buildings can optimise their maintenance services by identifying and addressing issues proactively rather than waiting for them to manifest. This proactive approach can reduce downtime, increase efficiency, and improve occupant comfort and safety, ultimately leading to a more sustainable and resilient built environment. The value of a smart building lies in its ability to leverage data and technology to optimise maintenance services and create a better, more responsive environment for its occupants.
