Maintenance • Quality & compliance assurance • Cost efficiencies • On-location
Facilities management helps protect your investment to secure long-term growth and is often used to describe the operational management of residential and commercial property. The primary function of your facilities or building manager is to oversee the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the building or property to ensure that it runs efficiently and is kept looking pristine. For example, the facilities manager will develop a maintenance schedule to regularly monitor the building, including lifts, lighting and fire control systems which help to identify issues early on therefore minimising future repair costs. The manager will also coordinate trade service providers on-site during scheduled or unscheduled works to make sure work is done efficiently and to a high standard. All our contractors are undergo pre-qualification and verification checks to ensure licence, insurance and work safe practices are in place to protect our customers against any risks associated with work performed on their properties.
