Synopsis of Dr. Lee Quah Kiang's Lecture

Properties/Buildings are durable assets, they involve large sums of capital investment and even larger aggregate sums to operate and maintain over their service life.  It is thus important for the performance of the asset to be measured and monitored in a consistent and objective manner to facilitate decision making for optimising asset performance. This presentation introduces the concept of Property Asset Heath Management and NEN 2767, a Dutch standard on Condition Assessment which could be utilised to measure asset technical health over building life cycle.
