A Building Manual contains the as built information about the completed building or structure. This information is required for the continuous safe operation, maintenance, potential further extension and alterations and eventual demolition.
A Building Manual includes all relevant information including Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Manuals for different trades and specialist sub-contractors (i.e. Electrical and Mechanical etc) compiled together.
Information required for compiling a Building Manual comes from the Principal Contractor, sub-contractors, suppliers and manufacturers. In addition, some information (including as built design, drawings, specifications and residual health and safety risks) comes from different designers (architects, building services engineers, structural and civil engineers etc)
Under different standard construction works contractual terms (usually defined in preliminaries (or pre-lim) section) the Principal Contractor is required to prepare a Building Manual.
However, compiling a Building Manual is usually a tedious and time-consuming exercise and is being increasingly outsourced to be prepared by companies like Safescope.
