Building Maintenance

A school maintenance programme is an organisational activity carried out by the school in order to prolong the life expectancy of school buildings, its furniture and equipment.

The school maintenance programme should be systematic and pro-active to prevent the need for repairs. It should have a sufficient staff and budget for proper maintenance.

Key Considerations

Reliable maintenance programme

The maintenance of the school building is a daily activity of the institution and its personnel. The maintenance programme should be comprised of three basic components: organisation, inspection, and maintenance plan.


Periodic inspections and maintenance on the roof, walls, gutters, drains and foundations is an investment in controlling interior conditions as well as preserving the building itself. Having a plan in place for regular maintenance scheduling, inspections, repairs, etc., is the best way to continue providing a clean and safe facility.
