What Are Facilities Management Services?

The term “facilities management services” is used to classify the services that makeup facilities management in general. They are a wide range of services which are critical for a conducive and functional environment.

These services range from the relatively simple task of trimming the shrubs in front of the building to the complex one of remodelling. But regardless of how simple or complex the task is, facilities management services are the foundational activities that set the tone for the experience people will have in the environment.

Understanding Facilities Management Services

The facility management services you adopt should be dependent on the type of facility you have. If you own a commercial facility, there is a combination of FM services that are ideal for your type of property. The same is also true if you own residential property.

You do not necessarily need every facility management service to spruce up your facility. All you need is a combination of some to ensure that all aspects of your facilities receive the adequate attention needed.

For this reason, we can broadly divide facilities management services into two:

  • Commercial facility management services.
  • Residential facility management services.

Commercial facility management services 

Commercial facility management services are those required to manage complete facility maintenance for corporate facilities. They may include the general services administration; building maintenance management; operations; asset management; logistics; and emergency services.

These FM services are crucial to ensure that the facility becomes a more efficient workplace and a comfortable place to do business.

Residential Facility Management Services

Residential facility management services are those provided by FM companies to residential properties. They may include full home maintenance service plans, moving house support, furniture installation and removals, property security, window cleaning, plumbing, electrical, carpentry, painting & decorating, or general maintenance.

These FM services are essential to improve convenience, security, cleanliness, and the resident experience in private residences.

 

Do you want your facility to become a desirable place to live, work, and visit?

Adopting facility management services can help you create the impressionable environment you desire. However, contrary to what most people think, you do not need a huge budget for facilities management services. When outsourced correctly, facility management costs would not be a financial burden but help reduce the operational costs for facilities.

Outsourcing facility management services is the best way to go about adopting FM services. There are several facilities management companies that provide holistic FM services at a minimal cost. So, rather than finding a vendor each time you have a facility issue, you can have just a contact (an FM company) that will help you promptly resolve any facility issue you may have at any time. It is less stressful that way.

Upholding the less stress benefit, James Cubitt Facility Managers (JCFM) offers different facility management packages to its clients. The Oncall FM package is designed for residential facilities, while the FULLSERVE and MULTISERVE packages are designed for commercial facilities. Also, PROPALIVE for renovation purposes. These facility management packages are made up of several facility management services that clients can choose to keep their facilities impressionable and operational.

 Facilities Management Services that keep facilities operational

Your facility management services must cover all aspects of your facility to ensure that it runs smoothly inside and out. Hence, this implies that your facility management combination should include both hard FM services and soft FM services.

Hard FM services and Soft FM services are the classifications of facility management services based on application. The facility management services directly related to the building are called Hard FM, while those necessary to primarily improve people’s well-being and allow them to make the most of their time in facilities are called Soft FM services.

Some examples of Hard FM services are:

  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC)

 

  • Plumbing systems and fixtures

 

  • Lighting and electrical systems

 

  • Mechanical systems other than HVAC

 

  • Sprinklers and other emergency control systems

 

Some examples of Soft FM services are:

  • Cleaning and janitorial services

 

  • Waste disposal and transportation

 

  • Interior design or decoration

 

  • Building security and surveillance

 

  • Landscaping and property management

In summary, Hard FM services focus on systems that frequently necessitate specialised knowledge to service and maintain, while Soft FM services are less specialised services because they are frequently situational.

However, both FM services are contracted and the scope of work for each is usually included and covered under an SLA (service-level agreement).
