Abstract

The purpose of this project is to develop processes for defect control in Malaysian public buildings. As a result, two objectives were established to achieve the goal: the study of defect management principles and analysis of defect management principles implementation levels in public building maintenance practises. Three local governments in the state of Selangor were the subjects of case studies. Using a systematic interview process, three building maintenance personnel were interviewed. Overall, the findings of this study revealed that each case study utilised defect management principles in a distinctive method. Despite the management and technical constraints, they are nevertheless able to manage the fault effectively.
