The New Rules of Measurement (NRM) are published by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). They provide a standard set of measurement rules for estimating, cost planning, procurement and whole-life costing for construction projects.
NRM3: Order of cost estimating and cost planning for building maintenance works, defines ‘proactive maintenance’ as:
‘…maintenance work that is undertaken to avoid failures or to identify defects that could lead to failure.They are the tasks to eliminate the root cause of the failure and include routine preventive and predictive maintenance activities and work tasks identified from them. This can include plant tours, targeted inspections and monitoring tasks.’
