How We Bring Value to You
Most facility management approaches depend upon the people within the company to run the business. However, FME has developed a proprietary way of doing business that uses processes and systems. With FME, these systems run the business; the employees run the systems.
At last, a proven means to reduce facility costs
FME comes with a track record of success at lowering facility costs. Founder and President Wayne Washington has over 25 years of experience in all facets of facility services, for firms large and small across multiple industries. FME knows which areas to investigate, and which systems and processes offer the greatest benefit. Most important, we know how to fit people into the equation, because people are the key to making it work.
Now you can do more with less
With FME, you get the practical knowledge to integrate functions so you can “do more with less.” This includes the ability to organize different functional requirements into an efficient work process under the direction of a single individual. What’s more, we bring the technology-aided infrastructure to effectively manage your entire facility—or any part of it.
The buck stops here—and frees you up to do more
As your partner in facility management, FME assumes responsibility for day-to-day service calls. This allows you to apply yourself to other core areas of your business and add greater value for your company. Your time is too precious to be consumed as a complaint/request dispatcher for facility issues.
Single-point accountability saves time and expense
FME acts as a “single point of accountability” for all facility activities, short- and long-term. This eliminates finger-pointing between vendors in response to problems. Our single accountability also reduces processing costs for internal transaction, since you issue one purchase order only versus multiple orders for different subcontracts.
As a single point of contact and accountability, FME brings efficiency to lower your costs. For instance, the same person can cut grass, change a furnace filter, change light bulbs, and clean the restroom. A standard approach would be to employ different entities (a gardener, an HVAC company, an electrician, and a custodian) for each task. Each such entity comes with fixed costs and overhead. With FME, you get the advantage of less manpower, hence less cost. FME can also manage your utility consumption to reduce costs.
FME’s total approach to facility management services means we look at every aspect of your building operations. We know that “money hides everywhere.” In particular, we assess operations in four key areas: utilities, maintenance, janitorial services, and procurement and inventory. Rather than simply react to problems, we root out the potential for undue expense and return lost money to you.
For example, proactive maintenance for utilities and related systems includes regularly scheduled checks and procedures at specific dates, based on the calendar and/or hours in service. For the building envelope, we make regular inspections of structural factors and assessments of heat gain and loss, occupant comfort, and energy consumption.
A proactive approach for building and grounds considers, among other things, routine service requirements for all powered equipment. The efficiency of your facility management services depends on access to inventory for timely replacement or repairs, whether routine or unexpected. Will the part be on the shelf when you need it? FME makes sure it is.
Our proactive approach also emphasizes planning and scheduling. These functions are often overlooked in building management, yet they are critical to efficiency.
