How our facilities management services work

Through proactive facilities management, you’ll be able to identify maintenance and safety issues before they have a chance to escalate. We pride ourselves on our ability to save strata committees and owners money through preventative measures, expertise and care.

Building condition reports

We can undertake a thorough assessment of your strata property’s common areas, identify the property’s overall condition, and recommend how to rectify structural defects, maintain optimal equipment performance, and address any safety issues.

Project coordination

Our project coordinators can provide an end-to-end project coordination service or any part of the process on a pay-as-you-go basis. They specialise in the three most important aspects of project coordination — project initiation, works coordination and communication.

Onsite facilities management (full-time and part-time management)

Our onsite facilities management specialists can work hand in hand with strata managers and owners corporations to deliver a range of common property management and maintenance services, and can be customised to suit your unique needs.

Additional services our facilities management team provide:

  • Communicating with all relevant parties and stakeholders during project works
  • Managing booking systems for onsite facilities such as tennis courts and entertainment areas
  • Providing a central location for information distribution, taking the onus off you and your committee
  • Implementing building care plans to reduce risk and prevent liability
  • Managing the asset register
  • Managing residents when moving in or out
  • Informing you of changes to laws and regulations
  • Identifying breaches of by-laws and escalating appropriately
