Core to Facilities Management at Cogent Associates is providing strategic support to our clients’ core business. We devise and implement services that reduce or eliminate risks and add value to our client’s core business. The service type is tailored to their specific requirements, including, but not limited to:
Building Condition Reports & Due Diligence
These are a fundamental first step when developing planned preventative maintenance programmes and budgets for long term replacement strategies.
The procurement of supplier services represents a major and integral part of an organisation’s facility management strategy, for this reason it is critical that the process is both consistent and thorough to ensure the optimum provider is selected.
We carry out a review of your operations to establish a baseline ‘total cost of service’ for both fixed and reactive expenditure and where possible categorised against work types. The objective is to generate FM efficiencies, value for money & service re-alignment savings.
Commercial Advice & Benchmarking
Maintenance costs are typically an organisation’s second largest operational cost. Benchmarking is an excellent measurement tool to compare one facility to another, to help set company standards and raise expectations through shared best practices.
Comprehensive compliance monitoring is a key factor in maintaining and improving standards. A properly implemented and managed process encourages continuous improvement which ensures statutory compliance.
