This unique publication gives you the tools you need to establish the value of PM, and to develop and budget for an appropriate PM program for your college or university.

The authors, whose clients include more than 25 leading colleges and universities, have provided an easy-to-use tool to help you conquer the challenges of PM in higher education. The book includes interactive models for the primary functional building types found in different-sized higher education facilities.

The models, which include dormitories, classroom buildings, laboratories, athletic facilities, and more, incorporate systems and equipment most often found on college campuses. Appropriate PM checklists are linked to each piece of equipment, along with required labor hours to complete those tasks. Four established priority levels let you select and develop the best possible PM plan within your budget constraints. The PM for Higher Education system includes:

  • 13 interactive Functional Building Models for small-to-large colleges and universities.

  • 50 PM checklists that provide the specific tasks, associated labor hours and costs -- and recommended frequencies -- from weekly to monthly, quarterly and annually.

. . . all in electronic format from the program's dedicated Website . . . and on heavy-stock paper for easy photocopying.

The authors also provide guidance on:

  • Selling the need for PM to the governing body, including identifying the impact if a PM program is not implemented.

  • Defining the annual cost of PM, in labor and materials.

  • Prioritizing PM tasks to fit your budget -- based on accepted equipment maintenance practices.

  • Performing the equipment inventory.

  • Using the PM standards/checklists.

  • Selecting a CMMS and incorporating PM into the program.
