This project has been conducted to study the maintenance related issues during design and construction stage within construction industry including oil and gas, civil engineering and high rise building. The project highlights the causes and errors made during design and construction stage and the impact during the operation/produc6onloccupancy stage as well as the maintenance costs associated with it. The study identifies the mistakes in the working processes within design and construction stage leading to the errors that affect the durability, performance, reliability, maintainability, availabi lity and safety of the systems. The project presents a comprehensive review of the published literatures, journals, technical papers, industrial practices documentation in the related areas as well as discussion and interviews with relevant industry practitioners in the construction field. Finally, the concept of design for maintainability and reliability is discussed. New approaches and decision framework are introduced so that designers and construction personnel could apply them in order to reduce the errors and defects in construction that could lead to maintenance issues and asset management issues.
