Design for maintenance

The BIM Overlay to the RIBA Outline Plan of Work, published by the RIBA in 2012 suggested that design for maintenance involves: ‘Ensuring maintenance is factored into the design process to reduce whole-life cost. This should include the use of intelligent and smart (monitored and controllable) components.’

This definition was repeated in RIBA Plan of Work 2013, Designing for Manufacture and Assembly, published by the RIBA in 2016.
