Our advisory service primarily aimed at assisting our clients' executive and senior management to make informed and strategic decisions about their facilities environment.
Our advisory services include:
- Facility management conceptual development
- Facilities business modelling
- Facilities integration and optimisation
- Energy optimisation
- Green building/carbon footprint optimisation
- Alternative and renewable energy use and feasibility studies
This service aligns operations to strategic goals to create a more efficient facilities business. We help our clients explore and develop different facility management concepts and models and then select the most appropriate solution for their business based on cost, benefit and value.
Key strategic business decisions of the company often have a significant impact on facilities, its operation and cost. Once understood, the impact may influence the strategic decision being contemplated. This influence can have a direct bearing on the benefit and value expected from strategic decision making.
Our experience includes:
- Facilities management strategy
- Facilities management policy
- Operations models
- Communication strategies
- Financial planning and modelling
- Feasibility and viability studies
- Logistics planning
- Organisational analysis (systems, operations, people) and business re-engineering.
Business itself is fluid but physical facilities generally are not: business may take a decision to implement a new process or division today and the systems, processes and people necessary may only take a month or two to be ready to implement, but changing the bricks and mortar of the building to meet the new need may take much longer. Ensuring that the built environment meets business needs today and into the future is often critical to the long-term success of a company.
Forward planning to take business growth or down-sizing into account helps ensure that facilities are aligned to the changing needs of business. Furthermore, when companies merge or split (usually through mergers and acquisitions), there is often a need to either separate or bring together facilities and operations in a cohesive way.
Having facilities which constantly grow, shrink or change to meet business needs is complex and can only be executed successfully if well planned, taking into account current and future business needs, risks, constraints and dependencies. We can help in developing appropriate project plans that ensure facilities can change whilst maintaining service delivery.
We understand the need to support businesses in reducing energy consumption, to decrease costs and to contribute to a smaller carbon footprint; thereby, participating in the social responsible fight against climate change and global warming. Carbon footprint reduction is a critical agenda item on the geo-political and economic world stage. It is a reasonable response to the ever-increasing cost of electricity.
Introducing energy reduction mechanisms can go some way to achieving these goals, but embracing renewable and sustainable energy alternatives maximise the benefits and present exciting opportunities for the future.
We regularly advise on effective energy monitoring and reduction tools, and conduct feasibility and viability business cases for the use of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power.
