Plan de gestion des actifs de l’Assemblée nationale

Direction de la gestion immobilière et des ressources matérielles, Service de l’exploitation

Responsable du projet : Robin Hagen

Date de réalisation du projet : 1er mars 2021

Le Service de l’exploitation de la Direction de la gestion immobilière et des ressources matérielles vise l’excellence opérationnelle en matière de maintien des actifs immobiliers de l’Assemblée nationale. Celle-ci compte cinq immeubles, dont certains présentent une valeur patrimoniale. C’est de cette vision que provient le projet de rédaction d’un plan de gestion des actifs (Bilan de santé des immeubles). Une fois complété, ce projet ambitieux et structurant permettra d’établir l’inventaire complet des actifs, leur niveau de désuétude de même que les coûts de remplacement. Il permettra aussi d’établir les priorités à court, moyen et long terme, afin de maximiser les investissements et de réduire les défaillances. En parallèle, en collaboration avec le personnel, les nombreuses démarches en amélioration continue permettront d’optimiser les activités de maintenance et d’acquisition, et de prolonger le cycle de vie de plusieurs actifs. Piloté par un ingénieur du Service l’exploitation des immeubles, le plan de gestion des actifs nécessite la participation de tous les corps de métier et de l’expertise unique de chacun.

Ce projet constitue la pierre angulaire d’une vision mobilisatrice à tous les niveaux du Service de l’exploitation. En effet, bien que son objectif principal soit de mieux planifier les interventions en gestion des actifs immobiliers de l’Assemblée nationale, il a permis de développer un sentiment de fierté au sein de l’équipe. La fierté de faire les bonnes choses au bon moment et d’être à la fine pointe des pratiques en matière de maintenance d’un parc immobilier.
