Latin America. There is a theme that affects us all, and about which it is important to reflect with the attention it deserves. It is about how the maintenance of buildings allows us to extend the life of them.

Do we know what elements of our building require mandatory reviews or are we exposed to fines for non-compliance? Do we know how long our building could last? Faced with a breakdown, do we always go to a professional to advise us on the best way to deal with it? Do we wonder if there is something that could need repair before it breaks? Surely most people who face these questions will respond negatively.

Today there are building maintenance companies such as Sensedi that are committed to promoting continuous improvement in the properties they manage. Projects such as the "Analysis of the Life Cycle of the Building" and its facilities, carried out by the aforementioned company, allow studying the different phases that are part of the life of a building, depending on factors such as the life of each one of them. its elements and facilities, the maintenance history of the building or the current regulations.

This type of analysis also provides an estimate of the current status of each of the elements and facilities that are part of the building and informs about the time that each of them will continue to function normally. In short, the Analysis of the Life Cycle of the Building offers the opportunity to know its real value, in order to make the right decisions about it.

This valuation acquires special importance in the business of property sales as they are assets with a long useful life that, in reality, present important differences depending on factors such as their location or the use to which said building is destined. In addition, it allows to know the maintenance costs of the building.

On the other hand, it is important that this type of building maintenance companies have a Facility Management area, managed by a Facility Manager, fully involved in the design phase of projects, since the decisions taken at that time will influence decisively the following 20 or 30 years of building life.
