The processes involved in developing and implementing a computer‐based school facilities management system for a regionally independent organisation are described. Since 1986 approximately 300 schoolbuildings covering approximately 5,000,000 sq. ft have been surveyed. The buildings are mainly post‐war and some date from the 1930s with post‐war extensions or partial modernisations. The first three implemented modules concern the graphical/statistical data and condition appraisal and procedures (five‐year maintenance programme). Some results concerning quality levels and building age, and typical building damages, as well as a consideration of future developments are included.
