Building Maintenance Jobs

Building Maintenance Job Overview

A day in the life of a building maintenance worker can be hectic and varied. He may start his day touching up paint in the lobby and his afternoon installing electric outlets in a newly constructed office. Building maintenance workers need to have a wide skill set, including knowledge of machinery repair, electrician skills, carpentry, mechanics, plumbing, construction and even heating and cooling systems. Good building maintenance workers also know local regulations and the limitations of their knowledge in order to know when to call in a licensed professional.

Most building maintenance jobs work under the supervision of a facilities manager, although some building maintenance jobs include supervision of other employees in the maintenance department. The work environment for building maintenance jobs includes both indoor and outdoor locations.

Some examples of the daily tasks a building maintenance worker might perform include:

  • Conducting regular inspections of areas of the building to determine where repairs or attention is needed
  • Responding to employees who report problems with equipment or facilities
  • Performing certain repairs on equipment or appliances
  • Attending to the routine maintenance of office electrical, heating and air conditioning systems
  • Ensuring regular maintenance of any machinery used in the building
  • Assembling furniture or equipment
  • Ordering supplies and maintaining an inventory of frequently used parts and equipment

Building maintenance workers with exceptional skills and a few years of experience often go on to building superintendent jobs or other management positions. Some building maintenance jobs also include tending to outdoor grounds and facilities such as parking garages.

Building Maintenance Job Education Requirements

Most building maintenance jobs do not require a college degree, although a certificate program in fields such as electrical technology, plumbing, HVAC technician or other trade is useful. Most building maintenance jobs require only a high school diploma and a broad range of handyman skills and experience. Those who seek position in building maintenance management often complete associate or bachelor's degrees in a business field, although in many cases, this is not required.

Building Maintenance Job Market

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job growth will be approximately 9 percent over the next 10 years in the building maintenance field. This is about average compared to other industries.

Building Maintenance Job Salary Information

According to the BLS, in 2012, the median salary for building maintenance jobs was $16.93 per hour, or just over $35,000 per year. Building maintenance supervisors earned about $10,000 per year more.
