How is a PPM survey defined?

A Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) survey is a proactive approach to building management and maintenance. It enables building owners/occupiers to identify potential issues and implement preventive measures to minimize unexpected costs and prolong the lifespan of the building.

This type of survey typically covers a five to ten-year period and provides a comprehensive overview of the building’s maintenance needs, allowing for effective budgeting and management. By proactively addressing building maintenance needs, a PPM survey helps to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of the building.
