Building systems in property refer to the interconnected components and infrastructure that enable a building’s functionality and operation. These systems encompass the structural elements that provide stability, HVAC systems for regulating temperature and air quality, plumbing systems for water supply and drainage, electrical systems for power distribution, fire protection systems for detecting and suppressing fires, security systems for ensuring safety, communication systems for connectivity, elevators and escalators for vertical transportation, and building automation systems that optimize energy efficiency and control various functions. Proper maintenance and management of these systems are crucial to ensure efficient building operation, comply with regulations, enhance occupant comfort and safety, and prolong the lifespan of the property.
