I see it first hand at the hospital i work at, (RUN TO FAIL), personally I think because the hospital is non-profit there is a better tax benefit for having a outside contractor come in and replace something than for the maintenance staff to properly maintain equipment, why else would one hire maintenance directors and supervisors who have very little if any knowledge about building maintenance.

Planned maintenance and renewal of systems should play a central strategic role in the acquisition and/or management of assets. Good planning for maintenance requires that appropriate resources be allocated on a priority basis which is where a viable predictive/preventative maintenance program comes in. In fact, routine maintenance is critical to preserve the asset so that it continues to provide acceptable services, achieves its expected life, generates the cash flow required to service the note and continue to exist as a stabilized asset. Failure to provide adequate maintenance results in deterioration of the property and eventually loss of use. A more important concern is the visible consequences of neglecting maintenance, which may not be apparent for many months. Once the signs of deterioration become visible, the repair cost likely will be far greater than the cost of preventative maintenance. A simple protocol called Property Condition Assessment (PCA) along with a solid predictive/preventative maintenance program can help lenders, investors, brokers, receivers, attorneys and stakeholders gauge the physical characteristics of a commercial real estate asset and make an informed decision to acquire, maintain, stabilize or dispose of the asset.

Speaking on this planned maintenance issue, While I was living on the East Coast I was very busy with Infrared maintenance of electric and roofing inspections for some building management companies. However here in San Diego Ca no one want to be bother with maintaining their buildings. I just can't seem to get any management companies to even try it out. I have even talked to people from the same company as on the East Coast, that maintains buildings across the country. Does anyone have any ideas on how to talk to them here in SD? or information that I can give to them.
