Focus on preventive maintenance

Departments must identify more sustainable PM work.

M&O has identified much of the low hanging fruit at the most high energy use and technically challenging school facilities, now this preventive maintenance work has to be expanded to the rest of the District. And regardless of today’s cost to do so, as PM saves costs in the long-term, it cannot fall to the bottom of the challenges heap as this will only multiply problems down the road. Each department manager, in particular the Electrical Department and HVAC Shop, has been charged with identifying more sustainable PM work to be performed by technicians throughout the course of a typical work day.
