A well-managed working environment makes people happier in their work. As a result, they’re more productive. And your building works better for your users.
The most effective approach to facilities management starts even before the building is built or refurbished, at the design and specification stage.
Using the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques makes long-term management more transparent and efficient. Read more about BAM's BIM4FM offerings here.
What makes for successful facilities management?
Quite simply, the knowledge that your buildings are in safe hands. We look after your buildings, so that you can look after your business.
Successful FM starts with an in-depth understanding of your users, your needs and your budgets. It is virtually transparent to your building users. If they do come into contact with it, it has to be a positive experience. Their problem solved. Their environment improved.
It’s not just about performance indicators and service standards, it’s about how people feel the building is being run. Perception is just as strong as KPIs.
That’s why there’s no substitute for being there, on the ground. Using in-house resources means we can directly manage services and operations to achieve consistently high levels of quality.
Ultimately, it's about the relationship you develop with us over the long term. Our aim? To be consultative, professional and ultra-responsive.
Because we develop and manage our own portfolio of properties, we’re in a unique position to understand what good facilities management really means in the life of a building and its users.
