Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA), a nonprofit organization in the United Kingdom, has published an updated guide on handover and O&M manuals. The guide, BG 79/2020, covers the process of handing over a building from the construction team to the end client and building operators, including the suggested documentation to include. The guide especially focuses on operating and maintenance (O&M) manuals and their importance to this process. Also discussed as part of the handover procedure are “record drawings, certificates, and BIM models, with a focus on legislative requirements and the need for handover documentation to reflect the operating and maintenance strategy of the building.”
The guide is available to download from the BSRIA Bookshop, with free downloads for BSRIA members. For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
