The Buildings Office can advise on, cost and manage minor improvement works for a School or Department. Minor Improvement works will only proceed when the scope, cost and method of payment have been agreed between the Client’s premises liaison person and the Maintenance Manager. Minor Improvement works will not normally exceed the following values
- Fixtures, Fittings, Structures………………..€7,500
- Electrical or Mechanical…………………....€20,000
- Finishes (decoration and floor covering)…..€20,000
Improvement works in excess of these limits or requiring planning permission are projects See Project section here.
Requests for Minor Improvements can be made to the Help Desk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Minor Improvements can be requested by a budget holder but must be approved by the Person I Control/Head of School or the unit's premises liaison person. Works cannot begin unless a charge code or official order has been received from the ordering department.
There are no charges for the Maintenance Managers services in bringing the works to approval stage. Units will be charged the full agreed cost of the works together with the cost of any additions, alterations, delays or unforeseen works.
