I was a Maintenance Manager for a major small package shipping company in the USA. I will try to be brief.

1.Building maintenance Program: To ensure and extend useful life of structure, fixtures, equipment and tenant improvements.
A. Identify components
B. Determine useful life of components using industry standards and manufacture’s specifications.
C. Plan and budget replacement or repair of components. (Cost of replacement balanced between actual cost and loss of productivity in event of component failure.
2. Preventive Maintenance Program; Using inspections, user (tenant) reports/complaints and industry standards to repair or replace components before loss of production, (down time)
A. Plan and implement preventative maintenance program based on Preventive Maintenance Inspections. (PMI)
B. Plan and implement program for responding to user reports/complaints of either pending or failure of components.
C. Plan and implement program to repair or replace components due to manufacture specifications and or industry standards. Example; replace fluorescent tubes every 1000 hours.
D. Plan and implement program of replacement parts, outside contractors/technicians and suppliers.
3. Emergency Repair program of replacement parts, outside contractors/technicians and suppliers.
A. Plan and implement program of replacement parts, supplies, suppliers, contractors and or technicians to facilitate emergency repairs.
B. Plan and implement program to track emergency repair historical data to be used in Preventive Maintenance Program.
4. Rehabilitation and Retrofitting.
We would build our Rehabilitation and Retrofitting into our larger plan. These are often tenant improvements and plans to design, plan, cost, budget and approve these changes must be foundational.

I hope this will help you and would be pleased to expand upon any of these or answer any questions.
