Maintenance Management (MM) is the process of providing specialist knowledge, assistance and support services to those who have a responsibility and/or requirement for ensuring that the vertical transportation systems and processes within their property(s) comply with statutory requirements. In addition those responsible for Maintenance Management should ensure that vertical transportation systems operate with maximum efficiency, effectiveness, availability and safety. This may be for a single lift or a national portfolio of properties with extensive and varied assets. Whatever the size, number or location, Dunbar & Boardman will tailor the scope of support services to meet these specific objectives and budgets. We will manage and control the risks and costs associated with unplanned equipment failure, statutory compliance, the performance and scope of services contracted and delivered by the maintaining contractor. In doing so we are able to obtain optimum life and reliability from the equipment while ensuring that all stakeholders achieve maximum return from their investment and satisfy user expectations. We have been helping clients with maintenance planning, execution and monitoring for over 30 years. Carefully planned and budgeted maintenance can save money, ensure building efficiency and effectiveness and ensure compliance with HSE regulations.

Secalt fully powered BMU systems were specified by Atkins to be installed in both towers.
The Bahrain World Trade Center, also known as Bahrain WTC and BWTC, is a 240-metre-high (787 ft), 50-floor, twin tower complex located in Manama, Bahrain. The towers were built in 2008 by the architectural firm Atkins. BWTC is the first skyscraper in the world to integrate wind turbines into its design. Atkins specified that Secalt fully powered Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) systems were to be installed in both towers.
Appointed to witness test and commission the works, following completion we were awarded the contract to manage the site maintenance work.
The primary challenges were to devise a safe method of work and specify a system of cleaning.
