Professional Education Seminar (PES) 
Topic: Checklist for Maintainability: An Owner’s Perspective for Design and Construction
-Speaker: Jack K. Colby, Asst. Vice Chancellor for Facilities Operations (retired)

The design and construction of capital facilities is a collaborative process that can result in functional, affordable, and successful addition to the physical campus.   To be successful, each member of the team must be committed to maintainability in order to achieve these goals over the long term of a building’s life.   There are very basic tools that should be utilized to achieve this successful collaboration.  This presentation uses humor from actual projects to identify the importance of each stakeholder’s role as well as stressing the expectations of the operations staff that may not receive adequate attention during the design and construction process.

Learning Outcomes:


  • Understanding “Maintainability” in the built environment.
  • Exposing the potential benefits and cost savings over a structure’s expected life associated with maintainability.
  • A humorous look at examples of what happens when the owner, designer, and contractor do not collaborate to build a maintainable structure.    
  • Tools to improve the design and construction process to deliver an affordable and productive building.

This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Dunstan Macauley.
