Planned preventative maintenance (PPM)
Your appointed facilities manager will work with you to draw up an annual planned maintenance schedule to keep you compliant with current legislation. This will be based on the assets you have within your building. We will work with you to optimise the operation of your building plant and assets, reviewing existing schedules or compiling new ones.
The resulting maintenance plan ensures works are carried out when required, test certificates are kept up to date and additional remedial work is undertaken. This will form part of your overall maintenance strategy, balancing planned maintenance spend and reducing reactive works.
Legislative compliance works cover items such as:
- Fire alarms/emergency lighting
- Gas inspections
- PAT testing
- 5 year fixed wire testing
- Water hygiene monitoring
Combining the management of planned and reactive works can deliver efficiencies, allowing planned works to be carried out at the same time as a reactive call, or allowing a reactive call to be postponed for the cheaper planned visit.
The objectives of a PPM plan:
- Provide statutory compliance
- Minimise breakdowns
- Extend the life of assets
- Ensure disruption to the facilities are minimised
- Maintaining an acceptable functionality
Unless we have a valid reason, all PPM is carried out in accordance with the SFG20 Standard Maintenance Specification for Building Services.
Reactive maintenance services
Our flexibility means some customers come to us to handle helpdesk calls and pass on those job requests to their existing suppliers. Others utilise our extensive approved supplier base and mobile maintenance teams.
All breakdowns and other ad-hoc problems will be managed through our CAFM system. The system will log each incident to the appropriate building in a distinct method including: the floor level, the room, and finally the asset so a history is established over time. The CAFM system includes warranty details and dates when an asset was replaced so an appropriate response can be co-ordinated.
We effectively utilise our combination of our mobile teams and specialist sub-contractors to provide first response and rectification wherever possible. Where rectification is not possible, the affected area is made safe and a rectification plan agreed.
Each breakdown will be assigned a target response and rectification time as agreed with the client so progress can be monitored on a real-time basis. A report showing completed, overdue and pending tasks will be presented to the client at the agreed frequency.
