Advantages of a Facility Company over Creating Own Company Infrastructure
What is Facility Management
Facility management is a relatively new concept for the Ukrainian market. While in the world, property management has been around for forty years. During this period, the methods, approaches and technologies and of course the very definition of the profession have changed dramatically. Today, the latest ISO standard: Facility management is defined as an organizational function that brings people together, locates and adjusts processes within a building in order to improve the quality of life for people and the productivity of the core business.
Simply put, it is a complex of works on building maintenance to maintain certain indicators.
Facility management types
According to the international classification, facilitation services are usually divided into Hard and Soft. The former relate to the infrastructure of the building, these are various systems and equipment (maintenance of ventilation, air conditioning, water supply and sewerage, lighting and electrics, elevators, escalators, etc.), while the latter make the stay of people in the building more comfortable and safe (cleaning, security, catering, reception service)
In addition, facility management can be divided into outsourcing and internal. In turn, outsourcing facility management can be provided both as separate services and on the principle of the so-called integrated FM. This means that the FM team maintains the entire building and works in maximum interaction with the client.
