With a holistic understanding of your asset portfolios, we review them alongside your organisation’s strategic business objectives and master planning intentions, to improve performance, cost and minimise risk.
Organisations are under increasing pressure to deliver improved services at reduced cost. Budgets are tightening due to increasing operational costs, real decreases in government contributions is evident and greater sector competition is a given. These factors combined drive a need to manage resources more effectively and efficiently.
While most organisations address operational Facilities Management and Capital Delivery relatively well within their built estates, the practice of aligning asset portfolios with organisational business objectives is often under developed and poorly executed.
Donald Cant Watts Corke recognises this and has responded by establishing SAFM (Strategic Asset Facilities Management). SAFM work in partnership with you to understand your organisation’s unique facilities portfolio in its entirety. With a holistic understanding of the built estate established, the portfolio can then be reviewed alongside your organisation’s strategic business objectives and masterplanning intentions. Where gaps are identified between strategic and operational objectives and the measured performance of the built estate, a Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) can be developed to improve performance and cost, whilst mitigating risk.
The SAMP is the influential narrative that assists with engaging the Executive to shape and articulate strategy that supports achievement of desired strategic outcomes. The asset management implementation plans that follow the SAMP align operations with strategic intent including maintenance mangement strategy formulation that reduces cost and increases service levels for all stakeholders.
To underpin effective SAMP development SAFM is expert in asset management systems, standards and frameworks that support efficient strategic and operational management of the built estate to maximise service delivery. The asset management system framework below adapted from PAS 55, 2008 highlights the SAFM focus on (i) capital investment optimisation and sustainable planning, (ii) sustained performance, cost and risk optimisation, and (iii) optimisation of life cycle activities.
To maximise the performance of your built estate, SAFM offer a growing list of integrated services including:
