RSMeans Maintenance & Repair Estimating for Facilities

June 11-12, 2012 in San Francisco, CA view other dates & locations


There are more than 10,000 maintenance, repair and preventive maintenance tasks for all types of facilities. With advances in telecommunications, computers and other workplace technologies, the list is growing rapidly. In a downsized, fiscally conservative environment, facilities are seen as vital capital assets that affect employee productivity. The demands for technical expertise, and cost-effective plant operations have increased dramatically.

Using data developed in cooperation with the Army Corps of Engineers and Applied Management Engineering, this course teaches the most financially favorable maintenance, repair and replacement estimating for virtually every building system. Attendees learn step-by-step proven methods for auditing facilities; for preventive planning that helps avoid costly breakdown and remediation; associated equipment, material and crew costing; determining both in-house and contract-out service costs; and assembling all this data into a defensible annual, asset-protecting M&R plan. Practice exercises provide skill-building opportunities.

Who should attend?

Facility Managers, Maintenance Supervisors, Buildings and Grounds Superintendents, Plant Managers, Planners, Estimators... and others involved in facilities planning and budgeting.
