Comments are Off
Maintenance has remained an issue with housekeeping and facility managers. They feel that most of the buildings they service are not maintenance friendly. Right from the glass facade to flooring material to washroom to MEP (Mechanical Electrical Plumbing) equipment designs and maintenance are areas of concerns for facility managers.
