QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Spare Parts Expense Allocation | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings
Q. Ours is a new facility due for warranty expiration early next year. For budgeting the MEP maintenance services, what is the standard practice of allocation towards spare parts expenses?
Is it a percentage of construction/installation expense of MEP systems? Or should it be calculated at actual cost?
