  • Abstract:
    Managers and maintenance consultants in The Netherlands are working to objectify the inspection of real estate, and to increase the possibilities of controlling long-range maintenance expectations and setting priorities. However, in this view maintenance policy is still largely determined from the 'bottom up'; technical maintenance requirements play a predominant role. However, maintenance and investment practice ought also to be based on a 'top-down' vision of the desired level of functional performance of a particular building and of the total stock of buildings in the future. This vision would result in accommodation scenarios for these buildings to which a maintenance policy can then be adapted. Such a maintenance policy would link together the top-down and the bottom-up approaches.
