Facilities Management

An average size unitary authority typically manages and maintains around 300 properties within its property portfolio.  Some of these buildings will be old and not fit for modern day needs, often draining resources just to adhere to legislative requirements.

The drive to  reduce spend, provide administrative offices that promote sharing and a collaborative approach and deliver public services in modern environments, presents both a challenge and opportunity to local authorities.

We provide:

Commissioning - client side advice on the commissioning of facilities management services or managing/leading the commissioning/procurement activities on the client's behalf, including the following phases:
  • Prepare notices and adverts
  • Write service specifications
  • Evaluate tenders
  • Interview shortlist and awarding contracts
Operational Support - short to medium term operational support to manage services on the client's behalf or working with existing client teams to help improve their own knowledge

Facilities Management diagnostic – providing a 'where are you now' review of current facilities, spend per facility and benchmarking current costs against market trends

Space Management – reviewing your buildings and space utilisation to reduce occupancy costs or improve usage

Asset Assessment – looking at your current asset maintenance strategies and advising on suitability in line with recognised best practise

Cost Management - delivering a solutions proposal that looks at how current costs are controlled and maps out future options for reducing spend, while adhering to legislative requirements and ultimately building a facilities portfolio that meets your future needs.  This can include the following services:
  • Building Maintenance
  • Cleaning Services
  • Security Services
  • Utilities
  • Pest Control
  • Window Cleaning
  • Grounds Maintenance
  • Catering
