Over recent years, the commercial property management landscape has changed dramatically. Environmental concerns, technological developments and increasing regulatory legislation have placed greater pressure on management companies to meet demands whilst improving the occupier experience. The complexity of this landscape demands a robust management system to guarantee that operations remain within the law.
One high-end commercial property management organisation based in London needed a provider who would be able to implement a management system across its entire portfolio of eight buildings. As part of its Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) maintenance schedule, the system needed to be relied upon to meet all compliance requirements.
CAFM systems (Computer-aided Facility Management) generally provide the best solution. However, if the system is incorrectly implemented, all compliance and maintenance scheduling will be skewed. Not only is this inconvenient, but it could be illegal. Statutory requirements demand the regular servicing of plant equipment at regulated dates throughout the year.
Shortly after taking over the maintenance contract, Sowga was asked to integrate the client's CAFM system across its properties. Dedicating resources to the project outside of the contract scope, Sowga collated, inputted and uploaded data on every asset across each of the eight buildings, including location, performance levels and service renewal dates. The information was used to underpin a Planned Preventive Maintenance programme that placed the client in control of all regulatory obligations.
Key phases included:

Overcoming the accidental management trap
It's a common scenario in many businesses today: an employee does their job extraordinary well and is rewarded by promotion to a managerial position. The paradox is that great performance in one position doesn't a successful manager make!
Halting the steadily climbing temperature of our planet will continue to be one of the most challenging and pressing issues of our age. Man-made gases are at the heart of the problem.
