External factors, such as weather, oxidation and the natural deterioration of materials over time, can all exact a heavy toll on building structures. It is critical for Owners & Managers to incorporate proactive measures, such as preventative maintenance and planning programs, which will ensure that the structural integrity of the building is protected.
