How can Twinview improve facilities management

How can Twinview improve facilities management?

What is a facility management system?

Facilities management encompasses many tools and services in order to support the functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of the built environment. It integrates people, place, process and technology.

Why is facilities management important?

Efficient facilities management can ensure a safe and comfortable work environment for employees. Furthermore, it can make people feel enthusiastic and productive about the work they carry out.

Facility managers make sure that everything about a building is running smoothly and when a problem finally does arrive, they can act and handle the issue. This involves repairs and maintenance.

Facility managers ensure that a company’s equipment and machinery is functioning at full capacity. This helps a company to optimise performance by not being disadvantaged by old and inefficient hardware. They also make sure that a building meets all legal requirements as well as preventing unauthorised access.

How can facilities management be changed through technology?

Technology has advanced exponentially over the past decade, and this is now being integrated with facilities management to improve its processes.

The Internet of Things (IoT), Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital twins are just a few of the main trends that are disrupting facilities management. Such technologies have helped to optimise performance, reduce costs, improve sustainability and boost productivity.

How does Twinview improve facilities management?

With the adoption of BIM, Twinview’s digital twin platform offers facility managers access to accurate, data-rich 3D models of their operational building whilst using real-time data to optimise property performance.

By providing users with easy access to building information, Twinview can facilitate the management of operations and maintenance of buildings throughout their life cycle.

  • Optimised maintenance – we usually wait until something is broken before it gets fixed, and this reactive approach tends to be costly. Twinview links to each of your building’s assets and uses predictive maintenance to identify problems before they arise. Being able to predict when assets will be due for repair rather than as they break down allows management to schedule maintenance at times when it is more cost and time effective.
  • The golden thread of information – the increasing legislation and compliance have placed greater importance on access to accurate records for building managers and owners. Buildings are continuously evolving throughout their lifetime and this information needs to be kept up to date. In the UK, following the Grenfell disaster, the Building Safety Bill is expected to increase liability on building owners. Twinview holds all information relating to a building and its assets in a digital format providing data on all operations and maintenance history.
  • Improved space management – by understanding the details of how space within a building is used, facility managers can reduce vacancy and ultimately achieve major reductions in operational costs. Accurate and accessible room and area information is displayed on a single easy-to-use dashboard providing the foundation for optimum space management.

What is the future of facilities management?

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the working world has generally shifted to hybrid working models allowing employees to work between home and the office. This means that the workplace will need to satisfy new needs. This will place greater importance on facility managers as they will be presented with new challenges such as energy consumption and space utilisation. They must look to facilitate this new way of working.

Twinview is a browser-based digital twin platform for the property sector connecting building systems’ data to a 3D model viewed on a single dashboard. Twinview is committed to delivering value and making a positive difference to your business. Learn how Twinview can optimise operational performance, improve space utilisation and increase sustainability and productivity.
