Asset Management for Building Managers





A Building Manager needs to provide strategic and tactical maintenance programmes to ensure optimal operations of all plant and equipment. Creating an asset register has significant features which include allocating building assets to the balance sheet and knowing what assets and trades are required to maintain, repair and replace components.

The Building or Facilities Manager is required to understand the regulatory compliance and operations of a building to create an optimal, safe and a ordable environment.

Pre approving contractors is essential


Using reliable, trustworthy, and cost-effective service providers does not guarantee a thorough vetting process if that doesn't also include a Work Health & Safety (WHS) audit.

Having a current Approved Contractor's List (also known as a Service Provider's List), is an important resource for building and facilities managers. A properly managed list ensures service providers can be enlisted effectively in the event of urgent work. 

As building managers handle health, safety and welfare of all occupants, visitors and workers in common spaces within a building, it is imperative they undergo a pre-approval process. A good WHS management system will include a pre-approval process that aims to make all service providers acutely aware of their responsibilities regarding maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. It is a requirement for building managers, on behalf of the owners corporation, to ensure all service providers meet the current health, safety and environmental regulations and standards.
