BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF METHODOLOGY/APPROACH
In order to deliver this contracted service, HFM implemented the use of the myBuildings™ platform powered by Core Vision, in order to provide an engineered and cost-effective solution to efficient facility manage this complex. The brief process for commencing the facility management of this complex consisted of:
- HFM senior management hiring, training & implementing a well suited and capable Facility Manager to the property.
- HFM senior consultant(s) and/or engineering consultants attended the site to get an in-depth understanding of the complex as well as collect a series of data including assets, location details, documentation and photographic details to be uploaded into the myBuildings™ platform
- HFM data analysts & consultants used the information gathered to set up, populate and configure the web-based platform ready for use by the Facility Manager and other HFM supervisors.
HFM has been providing on-site Facility Management and Utility Performance Consulting services for this residential complex since 2013.
Through the implementation of Core Vision’s myBuildings™ platform, HFM has helped the complex maintain its documentation, compliance preventative maintenance schedules, contractor details, assets and much more in one central location producing not only cost-savings for budgeting and CAPEX purposes and has also increased tenant and stakeholder satisfaction.
