Assessing the service quality of building maintenance providers: mechanical and engineering services
Sui, Gladys K.W., Bridge, Adrian J., & Skitmore, Martin (2001) Assessing the service quality of building maintenance providers: mechanical and engineering services. Construction Management and Economics, 19(7), pp. 719-726.
This study investigates the service quality in the maintenance of mechanical and engineering services. The determinants of service quality are identified and their means of evaluation are examined. A method of assessment is devised based on the SERVQUAL approach and its use is then illustrated by means of a small empirical survey of clients and service providers and the Gap model used to quantify the relationships between customer satisfaction, expected service, perceived service and service quality gap.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
