Thorough Assessment of Building Services.
We conducted an assessment of the assets to create a long-term capital plan that ensures the facility’s sustainability and efficiency.

Criticality Assessments and Expenditure Prioritisation.
Each asset type underwent criticality assessments, allowing us to prioritise expenditures based on the risks to the business.

Data-Driven Insights.
Reviewing historical work order and service report data, we gained insights into failure rates.

Stakeholder Collaboration.
Interviews with site management teams and incumbent subcontractors provided us with a deep understanding of failure patterns and opportunities for expenditure optimisation.

Smart Asset Management Approach.
To address the needs of our risk-conscious customer and reduce upfront budget pressure, we have devised a strategic plan to extend the life of certain assets deemed to be at their end of life. This involved replacing selected sub-systems based on rigorous risk assessments.
