How to save budget on School Maintenance

How to save budget on School Maintenance

When squeezed budgets mean difficult decisions, building maintenance and water hygiene often slips through the cracks. But what seem like a shrewd financial decision can become a costly mistake.

A recent article in Education Executive highlighted the importance of proactive facilities management.  There’s a clear warning that a short-term saving can lead to substantially higher costs and damages.

“The total cost for emergency repairs ran into the tens of thousands of pounds and when you compare this to what three years of maintenance would have cost at £1200/year…”

Be proactive with water hygiene

Spending some of your budget now on preventative efforts will save you a much larger sum in the future. Emergency repair costs are difficult to absorb – but a major setback can cost a school its reputation. It’s just not worth the risk to students.
