You will also implement a programme of assessment and maintenance of site utilities and infrastructure which will require collation of reports provided by specialists and consultants and subsequent development of budgets for future repair/replacement activities, complete a review of the asset database for each contract/site location and assess asset criticality including taking inputs from client, customer and operational team and development of future planned maintenance budgets and labour structures, as well as provide support and guidance to the operational teams to ensure compliance with the contract requirements of statutory legislation and critical maintenance of Buildings Services Equipment.
