Building maintenance now accounts for over half the construction industry's output. Therefore, there has been growing recognition of the role of the building maintenance manager. Since it was first written by Reg Lee, this book has played a significant part in developing the framework of the subject, covering in a systematic and comprehensive way a wide range of issues from the legal to the technical and financial. The Fourth Edition, the first in 14 years, has been substantially revised by Paul Wordsworth of Liverpool John Moores University. It provides an overview of new developments, changes in legislation and information technology, a more scientific approach to the section on defect diagnosis, and a new chapter on the increasingly important subjects of conservation and the environment. The book provides a core text for undergraduates of building surveying and students of facilities management.

Since publication of the first edition of this book some 10 years ago, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of building maintenance in the overall context of property management, and the need to obtain maximum value for the increasingly large sums spent on maintenance work. Maintenance management has been extensively researched but the main problem now lies in implementing the results. This book deals in a systematic and comprehensive way with the management of building maintenance and gives guidance on the related legislative and other constraints. This revised edition has been updated to reflect new thinking on the subject, to take account of changes in legislation, and to include new material on the use of computers and their application to maintenance decision making and information feedback. There is a completely new chapter on the causes of the more common building defects. Building Technology and Management said of an earlier edition, `An essential purchase for anyone engaged in the building industry and particularly those who seek to improve their professional approach to maintenance management'
