Observatory and registry of school buildings for maintenance planning
- School buildings,
The issue of the school has been a priority in the political agenda of the successive Italian governments during the last decade. This priority is also due to the size of the school real estate, consisting of approximately 41,000 buildings. The recent reactivation of the Observatory of School Buildings and of the Registry is an opportunity to improve maintenance planning. The paper deals with the role of the Observatory in monitoring the conservation status of school real estate, and the objectives to be pursued through the activation of the School Building Registry. Indeed, the integration with UNI standards in the field of maintenance can produce positive results in terms of quality and quantity of data available for the Information System, which represents an essential tool to streamline time and costs of inspections and interventions.
