|Schedule of Historical Events (SOHE)
component of a package of 10 key oversight
documents for asset
The schedule of historical events is a concise ordered history of the "significant" events at the building, organized either by year, by asset or by system, which may be presented in either chronological or reverse chronological order.
For example: we replaced the roof in 2004 and had a flood from a suite in 2007. While an older building will generally have a longer history (and therefore longer schedule) than a younger building it is expected that there will be approximately one event entry for each year of life of the building. The SOHE is basically a 1-4 page document.
Content of SOHE
The schedule of historical events should contain the following basic information about each significant event.
