Utilization of Government Facilities Stock
| As the number of facilities more
than 30 years old increases in the coming years, it is considered that the
costs of maintaining, managing, and renewing the facilities will increase.
Therefore, it is important to appropriately and efficiently
manage, maintain, and improve the facilities so that the buildings can be
utilized as good quality stock.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport provides
guidance in maintaining facilities to all government bodies through the
"Technical Standards for Maintaining Government Facilities." In
addition, the ministry has established the "Innovative Management Method
for Existing Government Buildings" as a comprehensive and organically-linked
set of maintenance technologies, and is working to promote these technologies
to ensure that government facilities are more efficiently maintained.
