SCOPE OF SERVICES

Known for its custom-tailored, leading-edge facility management programs, EMCOR Facilities Services (EFS) provided a single-source solution for handling all of this client's facility maintenance needs. Since reactive maintenance is typically 35 percent more costly than preventive maintenance (PM), the EFS solution included a PM program to cover the district’s major equipment.

In addition, the company implemented ongoing maintenance training, a continuous improvement program, and new human resource management procedures. A centralized facilities maintenance purchasing process was also put into place. And key performance indicators have been identified for use in monitoring and verifying continuous PM process improvements. To support its strategic maintenance plan and help measure its performance more efficiently, EFS implemented a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). Using the information from this system, the company and the client working together can make smarter facilities management decisions.

SOLUTIONS

By increasing the overall quality of the client's facilities maintenance, these processes and procedures measurably reduced costly and time-consuming routine, corrective, and emergency maintenance activities. As a result, this client gained new freedom to focus its attention on the educational process and the needs of its students, while also saving money and enabling a more comfortable and productive learning environment.
