Relationship Between Building Design and Building Maintenance in Nigeria

Building efficiency can be affected by decision taken and actions performed at any time in the history of a building from its initial stage to its final stage.
The designer should be involved in all these decisions because the design influence on the maintenance of all building is greater than ever before. Today, buildings are designed to meet more complicated needs than those of previous times do. Designer should know the building owner's requirements such as amount of space that he needs, the amount of money he can afforded to spend and the length of life he requires for his building.
At this time in the preparation of the design, brief decisions can be taken which will have a vital effect on the amount of maintenance the completed building will need.
The lowest initial cost in not necessary the most economical at the end, for cheaper materials often require more frequent maintenance and may have a shorter working life than the more expensive.
Physical decay and deterioration of…

See how to control maintenance cost in Nigeria

Upper management always concerns with the total amount of money to be spent over a period of time rather than with the detailed cost of individual items. The maintenance cost controller is always under various pressures and his decision on authorize a certain level of expenditure on maintenance will be affected by the strength of the demand for other quarters and their interest in and knowledge of maintenance. Upper level management often views maintenance costs as an uncontrollable cost. Contrary to this view, maintenance costs are highly controllable when an accurate strategy for estimating maintenance cost is established. The maintenance cost estimation accuracy depends upon the amount of information available on the nature and extent of the work, condition under which will be executed, the mode of execution, and the costs of employing labors and prices of materials.The strategy of estimating can be either long-term or medium and short-term estimate. The long-term estimate may exte…

Nigeria ineffective maintenance cost

Nigerian has wonderful knowledge of construction and infrastructural development but the question is, how effective is the maintenance cost of those infrastructure? Below are the factors affecting maintenance cost in Nigeria.There are many sources of ineffective maintenance cost. These sources include:Unnecessary Work: It includes the following.Work above the required standards.Improper maintenance work.
Misuse of the building.Design defects and faulty workmanship in the initial construction stage.Uneconomic Work: This is resulting form:Non-productive time caused by excessive traveling from job to job, waiting for instruction and materials
Improper work methods.Lack of motivation on the part of the operatives.Lack of appropriate maintenance contracts.Changes to the nature and scope of the work after commencement.Lack of an efficient system of recording and controlling costs.Inadequate Work: This is also resulting from:Failure to identify the true causes of defects and specifies the c…

Nigeria Building Maintenance Overview

Maintenance assists retaining economic life of buildings. Moreover, it is a productive activity both at the private and the national levels. At the private level, proper maintenance leads to lower depreciation costs (due to longer economic life) and consequently leads to higher profitability. While at the national level, proper maintenance leads to lower expenditures on replacement. Thus, allowing more expenditure on expansion into new productive investment (Ikhwan, 1996).The Committee on Building Maintenance in British defined maintenance as: “Building Maintenance is the work undertaken in order to keep, restore or improve every facility, i.e. every part of a building, its services and surrounds to a currently acceptable standard, and to sustain the utility and value of the building”(Mills, 1980).  In addition, maintenance is defined in the British Standards (BS 3811:1974) as “A combination of any action carried out to retain an item in, or restore it to an acceptable condition” (Mil…

Construction professional's decision incurring maintenance expenditure

The factors, which influence decisions to incur maintenance expenditure include:
Satisfaction of user requirements: the basic requirements of the user can be defined as the following:A stable shelter from the weather: new buildings are complex and the freedom of collapse remains an absolute requirement for all buildings.Some movement can't be avoided and it is necessary to determine whether their amount and rate were indicative of imminent failure of a structural member.Suitable internal environment conditions:External envelope of any building can be considered as a filter which can be adjusted to allow varying amount of light and air into the building and prevent the undesirable feature such as noise and excessive heat.However, artificial light and air should be used if the natural types are inadequate (Lee, 1987).Value consideration: the value of any building to be maintained is determined by the need for it services. If there is no need for its services then there is non-value …

Construction: Steps of virtual project management

There are numerous takes on what are the appropriate steps to project management. Instead of discussing these at length, it would be best to pick a general model and develop the permutations that those writing within the subject of virtual teams choose to emphasize. Gray & Larson support a traditional, linear model of collaboration involving 1) partner selection, 2) project manager team building, 3) stakeholder team building, 4) project implementation, and 5) project completion – celebrating success.
The first step listed is picking the right people. This is not really true since the project needs to be identified, promoted and approved by someone. This is generally not addressed since it is often not a distinguishing factor of virtual teams. Choosing personnel is the first step where traditional and virtual project management diverge.
One of the motivations of instituting a virtual team is that location is no longer a barrier to potential participant. However, one must consider …

Virtual Teams in an Organizational System

Rather than just a mere curiosity, promoters of virtual teams assert there are many advantages to virtual teams. A few of the drivers leading to interest in virtual teams include attracting the best workers independent of location, no need to relocate existing workers, flexibility, reduction in travel time and expense, environments requiring inter-organizational cooperation, shift towards service work, global workdays (24 hours vs. 8), and changes in workers expectations. Although not the answer to all logistical problems encounter by projects, it does provide a potential solution to numerous personnel and work issues.
Whether from necessity or deliberate design, companies are relying on new communicative technology with an impact on organizational structure. Cooper, for instance, takes a loose view of Systems Thinking and uses it as a framework in which to place teamwork. Her emphasis is on change, and the changes relevant to contemporary organizations are reengineering, system inte…
