Performance-based maintenance agreements by Dutch housing associations

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


    Dutch housing associations are considering the application of performance-based maintenance agreements. With this they expect to manage maintenance processes efficiently and effectively. A performance-based maintenance agreement is based upon minimal performance criteria of building components. Decisive performance requirements are directly linked to the specific functions of a building component. The contractor has to meet or exceed these criteria by executing the right maintenance activities to the building component at the right time. Based upon existing partnership forms and desires by housing association and contractors three partnership forms for maintenance services are designed. They are especially meant for condition-based maintenance to building components. The partnership forms can be described as price and performance agreements for maintenance activities, long-term cooperation and lump sum performance-based contracting. Long-term cooperation promises the best results in performances and costs.
