User guide

AIRAH, with support from the ARBS Education & Research Foundation, has developed Specifying a Maintenance Package with DA19 – an online user guide to complement the update to DA19. It is designed to assist building owners and managers to better understand the steps they need to take when using DA19 to specify their maintenance needs.

The DA19 User Guide is endorsed by the Property Council of Australia (PCA), the Facility Management Association (FMA) and the Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors Association (AMCA).
