Vishrantkumar Zambre, Milind Darade


Abstract: Buildings being constructed for residential or offices by government or commercial constructions are basically to fulfill demand of shelter due to high increase in the population, change in economic levels, obsolesce of the old buildings and so on. It is important to see here that for any reason if buildings are constructed they do not replace the old ones.

The planning of maintenance measures requires knowledge regarding the service life of the building components as well as the required maintenance intervals. In many cases, planners refer to the main building components. Compilation of building components is first step towards managing the facility by understanding and knowing the available alternatives their suitability with respect to the designed specifications and selection of appropriate component from the alternatives to be used for new construction. The variety of available alternatives is very high as new products are coming in the market regularly, the only problem faced is its unknown behavior and one has to rely on the manufactures specifications. There are various factors which causes building distress like lack of maintenance, extreme loading condition, faulty design and construction of foundation, poor quality of construction etc which affect on building safety. Maintainability, Building condition assessment, Methodology, Factors causing building distress, Main steps of bca.
