Imagine if your building stopped working. Do you have a preventive maintenance program?
Preventive maintenance helps extend the useful life of a building’s infrastructure and makes sure all systems are operating effectively and efficiently. As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Coordinating preventive maintenance can be complex, involving both building staff and a range of other service personnel, and includes:
● Planning and scheduling maintenance of equipment
● Keeping records of inspections and service
● Detecting potential problems and correcting them prior to equipment failure
When Gumley Haft manages your property, we start by surveying the building’s equipment, determining what immediate repairs may be required, and what regular programs of maintenance need to be scheduled to minimize the possibility of expensive repairs or breakdowns. As part of our review of operations, we evaluate where cost savings may emerge, as well as forecasting major repairs which naturally become necessary as buildings age.
Do you currently have a plan in place?
Most of all, we want to be sure your building functions without losing a beat. Preventive maintenance procedures are designed to keep equipment working properly with the least amount of downtime to residents.
Implementing a program of preventive maintenance will help reach levels of compliance with various regulatory agencies, such as the New York Department of Buildings (DOB), the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), the NYC Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) office, and the Environmental Control Board (ECB). In that regard, we ensure that your building complies with rapidly changing laws regarding fire and safety systems, boilers, elevators, roofs, facades, water tanks, as well as structural elements.
Now, imagine working with Gumley Haft. Our clients rely on us as they realize the benefits of instituting a preventive maintenance program in their buildings. So will you.
