Abstract: When building services maintenance solely relies on the experience of the individual engineer, results are often not wholly satisfactory. There are high risk in building services availability. Poor maintenance is a risk. Risk must be assessed and managed before a design is fully implemented. The application of prediction theories (e.g. reliability evaluation of engineering systems) has not yet been widely used in the building services industry. Therefore, the quality of operation and maintenance is still not cost-effective and reliable. As high environmental performance and users’ expectations have lead to increasingly complex systems, the application of risk assessment, prediction theories and reliability-centred maintenance (RCM) should result in improved quality of building services operation and maintenance. The discussions given should be of great help to both designers and maintenance engineers.
