This manual provides a comprehensive source of building component life-span and maintenance data for commercial and industrial building components, following the same format as the ground-breaking HAPM Component Life Manual for domestic buildings. Each building component is allocated its own data sheet on which a number of generic descriptions are provided together with assessed life-spans and maintenance requirements. References to the relevant standards and codes of practice are also included.
