Our Facilities Management team specialise in creating and implementing bespoke practical supply chain solutions that deliver savings without compromising service.
Our team has worked in and with the FM Marketplace for many years and have significant influence over suppliers due, in part, to our knowledge and combined purchasing spend.
Due to our extensive market knowledge and contacts, we are able to keep up to date with the latest pricing and service levels. Our combined purchasing portfolio allows us to negotiate considerably greater savings than would normally be available to businesses choosing to negotiate their own contracts.
A little more information
ERA’s Facilities Management (FM) team has been specifically set up to address the needs of any client who operates within the built environment. The FM team has a wide range of skills and experience gained over many years that directly benefit our clients by providing specific resources with the right skill set required to complete any given task. By fully understanding the requirements of the project, we are able to deploy the right bled of consultant skills at any one time, ensuring the highest possible quality work whilst delivering results as soon as possible. In this way the results positively impact bottom line performance quickly.
Our unique and robust procurement methodology enables us to deliver solutions that will not only meet your current requirements but will also deliver results that are sustainable over time.
Today’s scope of FM is broad with significant budgets which are being reduced whilst the function is not always given the importance it deserves.
Whether you have your own in-house team or outsource your FM function, the scope of FM is ever increasing due to regulatory demands. As budgets decrease as a result of the economic downturn, business leaders have to ‘do more with less’.
Whether you lease a state-of-the-art city centre HQ, own a commercial unit in an out-of-town business park or manage a multi-site estate across the country, the cost of your business premises will be a significant overhead. The largest overhead can offer the most potential for savings and process improvement.
With recent changes in the law managing compliance has become a key demand within businesses and for facilities management professionals, who are now spending up to 30% of their day on dealing with regulations. Despite this, it is unlikely that budgets will increase, therefore saving time and money in all areas is crucial.
COST AREAS INCLUDE:
- Equipment Maintenance FM
