In order for me to explain the hard facility management services I can provide; it is important for you to understand the difference between ‘hard facilities’ and ‘soft facilities.

Soft facilities are services and facilities that help support the workplace to function, usually by making the environment clean, efficient and secure. Examples of soft facilities would include cleaning, catering, car parking and mail management.

While Hard Facility management refers to the physical materials and utilities of a building which cannot be removed. These facilities are often required by law to adhere to safety and welfare standards.

I also have experience dealing with heavy plant equipment and the installation of boilers, air conditions, HVAC, electrical intake panels and low voltage panels.
