Facilities management encompasses a range of disciplines and services to ensure the functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of a built environment — buildings and grounds, infrastructure and real estate.
Facilities management is divided into two basic areas: Hard Facilities Management (Hard FM) and Soft Facilities Management (Soft FM). Hard FM deals with physical assets such as plumbing, heating and cooling, elevators. Soft FM focuses on tasks performed by people such as custodial services, lease accounting, catering, security, grounds keeping.

A variety of soft facility management services are provided by our facilities management company, these include: commercial cleaning services; waste management services; security services; decorating; office moves and catering.
Commercial Cleaning Service
A clean working environment has been known to stimulate a healthy working environment, easily motivating and engaging employees. Also, keeping a clean environment reduces the risk of accidents occurring as an unclean environment increases the tendency to hazardous substances to go unnoticed to the organisations workers.
Additionally, the risk of the organisations workers contacting diseases in an unclean environment is high. This altogether reduces the productivity of the company and can be prevented by a commercial cleaning service with a facilities management company.
Waste Management Service
Most facilities management companies possess waste management services that provide for the gathering, transiting, processing, recycling and sometimes disposal of materials that can’t be recycled. In a century where a lot of focus has been placed on how companies take care of their waste products, this is an important service to have.
With increasing government interest in how organisations manage their waste, comes the need for advanced planning and record keeping on waste management processes in place. Facilities management companies help to achieve this.
Security issues plaguing a company range from protection of the companies assets, damages to facilities, the companies buildings, buildings outside the company that can affect the image or workings of the business.
It has been observed from statistics that companies that place a lot of interest in interior design outperforms companies that don’t. A psychological reason for this is “the eating with your eyes” syndrome, which simply means that the more appealing something is to our eyes, the more tendency we have to buy it.
Hence, facilities management companies also offer services that enhance the appearance of your organisation, this includes the painting and decorating of your companies building, managing commercial fit-outs and so on.
It is often said that movement of office equipment during change of locations can be extremely stressful for both the managers and employees within a building; a facilities management company can manage the full office move process, ensuring the protection of your equipment during an office move, management of dilapidation survey and office fit outs.
