Residential Facilities Management
Whether it is an individually-owned home or a multi-unit residence the experts at Brisull can look after all your facilities management needs.
When it comes to proper facilities management for the residential customer, it's very important to get the right company to handle the properties. If you're looking for the highest quality facilities management Sydney has to offer, you're looking for us at Brisull.
Before you choose from the available facilities management companies, though, it's vital to understand what this kind of management offers, why it's important, how it works, and why choosing us as your facilities manager is the right thing to do.
What is Residential Facilities Management?
Residential assets can be anything from individually owned houses (either tenanted as an investment or used as an owned residence) to large, multi-unit residential facilities. Whether you have one house you own and live in, or a large number of complexes for investment purposes -- or anything in between -- proper management, maintenance, and care are all highly important.
This importance extends to both internal and external facilities management, because these environments have large numbers of people living in close proximity to each other. Communication becomes one of the most vital skills that facilities managers must have, in order to make sure all the requirements of the facility's occupants and owners are being properly met.
Why Is Residential Facilities Management Important?
A Boston University study that was completed post-WW2 suggested that 1.5 percent of a property’s value should be spent every year on maintenance for that property. This suggestion was based on the idea that maintaining a property was less expensive in the long run than making repairs to it because maintenance was deferred for too long. Most residential facilities don’t utilise this regular spending plan, though.
Instead, they wait for something to break down or fail. Then repairs become much more expensive because they've already caused more damage or problems over time. Whether it's being done for aesthetic or functional reasons, regular maintenance over time will protect your investment in your home or your multi-unit property. Putting it off may seem like a good strategy because you're not putting any money out at the time, but it can easily cost you much more later.
How does it work?
In order to understand how facilities management companies really operate and what they can offer to you, you need to first understand that there are three types of residential clients. These are:
For Individual Home Owners: If you’ve just bought a house, want to sell the house you already have, or just want to upgrade some aspects of your home, we can provide quotes for work that needs to be done. This will help you keep your house or investment up to the standards you're looking for, and will reduce the chances of larger problems that might cost you much more in the future. Prior to moving in or moving out we can make sure the aesthetics of a home are maintained for you, and we can also provide ongoing maintenance and upgrade services for your property.
For Strata: We provide maintenance and repair work for all aspects of a complex or building. Whether it's for the Building Management committee or individual tenants, we know it's important. We also perform cleaning, waste removal, and grounds management, along with Concierge and valet services to give you the best facilities management Sydney has to offer.
For Property Management: Our bespoke system tracks all work orders from individual tenants, which enables the approval process to be transparent. Everyone in the stakeholder process knows what stage the work is at, and that work can more easily be completed with all parties being informed. No one is left guessing about the status of any project we're working on.
