Abstract

The study deals with the close relationship existing between the durability of building materials and components and the maintenance approach. The paper begins from results of a more general research activities developed at DASTEC, Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria, whose aim is the formulation of a normative guide to operate in the whole Region, through the introduction of Protocols for the diagnosis and the control of the different phases of the maintenance plan. The paper presents a methodological proposal for ex-post evaluations of the durability of building materials and components, through the definition of a “building pathology database” usefull in the planning and the management of maintenance program. At the same time there are introduced the preliminary results of an ongoing research developed by the authors and pointed at the possibility to apply the Factor Method to existing buildings in a well definited contex, with regard to the definition of values of Factor G, taking care of the principal management maintenance instruments regulated by the National Laws and Local Codes.
