Higher education institutions buildings and facilities (Hostel Building) are considered a vital asset. Proper maintenance and timely rehabilitation is required to ensure: i) Building operation and maintenance costs are minimized and ii) Levels of service and quality standards are met. Inspection of building components is a necessary step to ensure that maintenance and rehabilitation needs are properly understood. This study proposes useful guidelines and processes to avoid making mistakes in the integration of the interface, which would necessitate redoing work, increase costs. Based on the importance of maintenance of such facilities, this Paper aims to investigate and document existing software systems used to manage operation, maintenance and inspection of hostel building. The objective of the MEP tool is to leverage the existing data in Revit to expedite and enhance the quality of building inspections. The MEP tool is based on the use of Autodesk Revit architect and linked with AutoCAD software. The MEP tool controls the inspection of building components where new inspection data are added such as assessment grade, repair priority, and type of component defect. Inspection results including costs and immediacy of repair can be reported on the software. A digital image database of building components at various stages of deterioration can be created to ensure a standardized condition rating during the inspection process.
