Maintenance

Repairs and maintenance services underpin the operational performance of a building.

Key impacts on resource efficiency include:

  • Fate of generated waste (i.e. % diverted from landfill).
  • Level of material consumption and waste generation during repairs and maintenance activities.
  • Impact on operational energy and water consumption associated with the condition of key assets. 
  • Durability / flexibility of materials / products used.
  • Embodied impacts of materials used.

Operational energy consumption is the main contributor to most organisations’ Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions and it therefore represents a key corporate responsibility consideration. Energy already accounts for about 5% of building occupancy costs and this is projected to double over the next 10 years. However, it is possible to make cost effective savings in most buildings with limited capital investment.

Approximately 70% of energy consumption in a typical office building is used for heating, ventilation or air conditioning (HVAC). ICT is becoming increasingly significant because of the cooling load it imposes on air conditioning systems.
