What is an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Manual?

Operations and Maintenance Manuals or commonly abbreviated as O&M Manuals are essential part of a completed building or structure handover documentation. By definition, a Building Manual contains as built information about the whole of completed building or structure. Whereas an O&M Manual may only contain information about specific trade or service i.e. Electrical O&M Manual or Mechanical O&M Manual etc.

An O&M Manual for specific trade or service may form part of Building Manual prepared for the whol building or structure.

However, the terms O&M Manuals and Building Manuals are used interchangeably in the construction industry.

Information required for compiling an O&M Manual for specific trade or service comes from the relevant trade and specialist contractor (i.e. building services contractor, lightening protection contractor, swimming pool contractor etc.) and their sub-contractors, suppliers and manufacturers. In addition, some information (including as built design, drawings, specifications and residual health and safety risks) comes from relevant designers (i.e. building services engineers etc)
