This is a template document and certification providing landlords and housing managers with a maintenance plan that avoids disruptive, costly refurbishments in years ahead. Broadcasting is the fastest changing industry of all. By timetabling regular service intervals on a system, CAI installers can identify any work required to maintain an up-to-date, safe and functional signal network. Specifically, communal buildings such as apartments, residential care homes, communal housing projects, offices and other multi-roomed facilities. A reasonable regular payment maintenance plan can be agreed under the scheme.
