Our independent facilities management consultants work with our clients to improve asset management practices as well as to develop and tender tailored asset and facilities management contracts which support the efficient and economic long-term management of the client’s assets. With the increased focus on the effectiveness of Council asset management now linked to rate assessment by IPART and the increasing application of the ISO55000 Standard, the importance of effective asset management for senior Council leadership is intensifying. Advances in technology, the improved capability of Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), increased adoption of Building Information Management (BIM) and increased system interoperability allow data to be used more productively to improve overall asset management functions. Improved data quality allows plant and equipment maintenance to be less reactionary providing opportunity to more effectively prioritise constrained maintenance budgets.
At MBM we believe that an accurate and complete Asset Register is at the heart of good asset management. This coupled with innovations in asset management contracting and appropriate risk transfer provide the opportunity for councils to transform their asset management capability and attain the desired balance between Council’s asset management objectives and the resources available to achieve them. We have worked with Councils such as Liverpool Council and the City of Sydney to develop their strategic asset management capability. Our recent work with the NSW Land & Housing Corporation (LAHC) was recognised by the RICS Facilities Management Team of the Year Award for 2016.
LAHC’s Transition Project Lead Rebecca Krumins stated “MBM demonstrated a high level of skill in the development of innovative modelling for the commercial principles and Performance Management Framework as well as in the design of an effective system to assist in the assessment of an extremely intricate tender evaluation process”.
