Trevor Anthony Ashburner Cox



I have spent 45+ years working within the industry of facilities management, running busy facilities both in the UK and across the EU, and now manage Ashburn Facilities Consultancy. Through my experiences in the field, I am aware of the minefield some managers face in their day-to-day activities and that at times they require help and support.

That is what I offer to you – full support and advice as an independent facilities management consultant, supporting your existing facilities management team or acting as a remote facilities manager to moderate on your behalf when dealing with 3rd parties.






Get in touch to find out more about my facilities management consultancy services or to arrange a free half an hour Zoom clinic session – see how I can help and support you.




Identifying the Problem


Having worked for blue-chip companies, I found a lot of misconceptions and a lack of real knowledge either from top management (duty holders)  or bad decision making by facility managers who feel out of their depth and are looking for guidance.

Of course, these underlying issues are not exclusive to large companies; SMEs also fall foul of potential issues that usually come from a lack of experience or the fact that the company does not have a dedicated facilities manager.


I believe through my tried and tested experiences that I can offer you the right solutions. See my full range of specialist services.
