What is an O & M Manual and Building User Guide
Operation and Maintenance Manuals together with Building User Guides are an important part of the “handover” of a building to the client.
The Building User guide is a non-technical guide to how the building works and is designed so that the building users can access, understand and operate the building efficiently and in a manner in keeping with the original design intent.
The Operation and Maintenance Manual is a large, more technical document with contains, all the operating instructions, maintenance instructions, certificates and drawings relating to the building. This enables any Facilities Manager to be able to reference any relevant certificates, drawings or Maintenance Instructions.
Why do you need an Operation and Maintenance Manual (O&M Manual)
A Building User Guide and O&M manual are required for compliance with BREEAM MAN04.4 Handover.
Working with WPS
WPS understands the complexity of gathering all the information required from sub-contractors and the time required to do this. We can offer a flexible package where we can fully manage the process from contacting your sub-contractors and gathering the information, collating and indexing it into a complete O & M manual. Alternatively, we can work with you and purely collate and index the information and put it into the correct format.
