Widely-dispersed assets such as buildings, equipment, roads and bridges present local governments as well as big organizations with a number of asset management challenges. Recently financial sustainability and competitiveness have put more pressures on owner/managers to minimize asset total cost of ownership and streamline their asset management operations. In general asset management operation is the systematic process of maintaining, upgrading and operating physical assets. In this paper, our focus is on building assets as they often present some of the most complicated asset management problems (Eastman et al., 2008; more references). And building assets management is specified in this paper to include all the intricate tasks in all levels of the asset life-cycle, e.g. encompassing the development of new properties, maintaining and redeveloping existing estates and strategically disposing of individual buildings.
