Facilities Management

What is Facilities Management?

Facilities management is the administration of a business with regards to managing space, people, infrastructure, buildings and business processes and at Plymouth Block Management this is one of our biggest strengths.

A facilities management company supports everyday business operations by providing services that save time, money and resources. 

This is especially useful when it comes to the day-to-day running of a busy organisation, a demanding building or site, or a business spanning several locations.


Why would you outsource your facilities management?

Your business can benefit from:

  • Fine tune your business processes: Do more with what you already have, so you can take your business to the next level.
  • Cut costs: Find areas to save money without impacting on performance. A strategic assessment of your current facilities and business processes will highlight areas where you could be needlessly overspending.
  • Take a load off: Proper facilities management will save you time and hassle, as well as money.
  • Futureproof your business: Put in place measures to ensure the continuity of your business and feel safe in the knowledge that you’re covered under any circumstance.
  • Ensuring statutory compliance: We can provide all statutory compliance in relation to building services, including but not limited to water hygiene, pressure systems, gas safety, risk assessment, fire safety, management of asbestos, electrical testing, noise and air quality monitoring.
