At their core, facility maintenance managed services help ensure that a facility is well maintained and operationally effective, thereby increasing productivity and efficiency. This is achieved through the lifecycle management of both facility assets and the facility itself, which results in lower operating costs and a higher return on investment.
When these managed services are crafted into a program tailored to your organization’s specific needs, you’ll experience both operational cost and energy savings.
Below are some of the managed services Encompass Onsite provides that are sure to increase facility performance, cushion your bottom line, and keep your building well maintained.
1. Elevator & Escalator Maintenance
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, out of 18 billion elevator uses per year, there are only 27 deaths on average. Although they are relatively safe, it is still incredibly important to perform regular maintenance on both elevators and escalators to keep these tragic numbers as low as possible.
Some areas that should be prioritized include safety standards for older, existing elevators and escalators, as well as ensuring that all elevator and escalator technicians have met stringent licensing requirements. Furthermore, many facility managers have to abide by local and state laws that can vary greatly by location.
2. Fire Protection & Life Safety
Ensuring fire protection and life safety systems are functioning properly is one of the most important aspects of a facility manager’s job.
Although modern systems are incredibly reliable, they still need to meet code compliance and performance standards. That’s why Encompass Onsite is happy to provide inspections, testing, and maintenance of fire protection and life safety systems to ensure they are functioning properly, avoiding any complications or malfunctions down the line.
3. Pest Management
Integrated pest management (IPM) systems are essential parts of any smoothly-operating facility. These systems maintain a high standard of pest control while reducing reliance on pesticides. They include all practical non-chemical, biological, and structural management measures (chemical measures are only utilized as a last resort or when other methods fail).
Overall, IPM systems will provide your organization with a decision-making process that follows a set of detailed procedures describing how particular pest problems are to be avoided or managed.
4. Move Management
According to the International Facility Management Association, organizations move, remodel, or relocate approximately 30 percent of their facilities each year (based on square footage).
In order to successfully move an organization’s primary facility operations from one location to another, facility managers will need to engage in complex planning, coordination and execution.
Encompass Onsite’s move management services provide planning, budgeting, scheduling, and coordination for all facility moves. These help minimize moving expenses and client downtime while ensuring both the strategic and tactical aspects of the move are handled efficiently.
Facility maintenance managed services like those listed above help achieve higher levels of building efficiency while minimizing the cost to maintain and operate a facility.
