A facilities manager does more than just manage contracts...

19 March 2020

Ask any Facilities Manager what the day-to-day responsibilities of their role are and managing contractors is a part of it – yes – but just an element of the overall value and services they provide.

Paul Lucas Managing Director at Artic building Services states “Strong Facilities Management is vital to the performance of every business.

"Productivity, agility, safety, sustainability and compliance rely on it. Managing multiple contracts can be time-consuming and disruptive to the Facilities Manager – who needs valuable time back to operate across the various functions that fall under their remit at a strategic level.”

The role of facilities manager

Managing contracts doesn’t uphold government regulations and compliance standards. It doesn’t identify and resolve problems. It doesn’t improve and streamline day-to-day operations.

But all too often managing HVAC, electrical, mechanical and refurbishments contracts across multiple sites can deplete your time, your resources and be a financial drain on the business.

If all these contracts were in one place, would that leave you out of a job, or free up the valuable time necessary to do your job?

Having all your contracts in one place only bolsters your ability to deal with the urgent situations that arise, supervise your various divisions and advise on business and cost-saving measures.

It gives you time to focus on space and management, security and budgetary control, forecasting and planning, plans for preventative maintenance and reducing energy usage.

Partnering with a Facilities Management expert, such as Artic Building Services, allows you to delegate contract management and oversee all contracts in one place.

* Choose from a full range of technical and engineering solutions that are tailored to your needs.

* Tap into a continual resource of expertise and engineers.

* Reduce the time spent on dealing with a multitude of contracts.

A Facilities Management solution provides you with the support and resources necessary to ensure the many jobs under your remit get done.

Facilities Management is pressured, demanding and constant. Sites are often spread geographically, and skills and resources are tight.

A partnership with Artic, gives you access to the high-level trained experts and resources you need, saving you time and money in the process.

Take back the time you need to operate as Facilities Manager at a strategic and operational level.
