Ensure cost-efficient upkeep of your facilities.

Organisations in the facilities management sector typically own or manage buildings and facilities that deliver important services to the public. These include:

  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Universities
  • Courts, Police Stations and Jails
  • Office Buildings
  • Shopping Centres

The assets in the facilities management sector typically constitute a mix of long-lived assets whose condition deteriorates in a largely steady and predictable manner (e.g. concrete structures) and other assets where asset condition and failure cannot be so easily predicted (e.g. emergency power generating systems).

In the facilities management sector, forecasts of longer term demand for facilities, as well as shorter term expectations for levels of service is typically established by the asset “owner”. Establishing the plans and processes for meeting those objectives may be performed in-house, by the asset owning organisation, or may be outsourced to a specialist facilities management contractor. The delivery of asset operations and maintenance services is most often delivered by contractors.

Establishing clarity in the accountabilities and responsibilities in each of these roles, as well as ensuring that effective contractor management processes are in place are key for ensuring that money spent on the assets is spent effectively. There is still a need, however, for shorter term focus on improving reliability for critical assets, and on improving the cost effectiveness of maintenance activities.

We have also delivered training in asset management, maintenance and reliability improvement to the facilities management sector. Our experience in the facilities management sector includes work for both public and private sector organisations, for organisations that own and manage their own facilities, and for contractors that provide facilities management services.
