Making facility manager's lives easier

The facilities management industry is growing at great speed and facility manager's roles are beginning to encompass even more responsibilities.

Their jobs are becoming more impactful due to the built environment becoming more integral to the ways in which our world conducts business.

As buildings become more sophisticated, facilities management is becoming more complex, and this is where technology can play a central role.

What do FMs do?

Facilities management is changing rapidly. What was once a role reserved for building services management has now developed into a multi-channel position that encompasses aspects of IT and HR. As our expectations of building capabilities grow, so do our expectations of facilities managers. Facilities management today considers the comfort and individualisation of the workplace for every building user.

One of the major roles of a facilities manager is to make sure that their occupants are happy and getting the most from their building, such as effective workspace management. In a 2019 workplace survey, 73% of respondents said that well-managed office spaces were the driving force behind them performing better at work.

How does Twinview help facility managers?

With the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Twinview’s digital twin platform offers real estate owners access to accurate, data-rich 3D models of their operational buildings whilst using real-time data to optimise property performance. By providing building managers with easy access to building information, Twinview facilitates the management of operations and maintenance of buildings throughout their lifecycles. Facility managers are finding value in several areas of building operations that benefit from enhanced data.

Optimising 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. By 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.

Golden thread of information

The increasing legislation and compliance has 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.
