There is a high demand for functioning utilities and building systems in educational facilities. School Facilities are unique in the sense that there are long hours of operation where you can't perform maintenance tasks due to children occupying a given space. When a space is in use, lights are on, HVAC systems are running, water is being heated, and plants are being irrigated. Hard services relate to the physical infrastructure of a building and cannot be removed. They ensure the safety and welfare of the occupants and are typically required to have in a spaces that serve the public.
Our goal in providing Hard Service Management is to keep these systems running at peak performance while going unnoticed to building occupants. To achieve this, we advocate and practice a sustainable and preventative approach. It's said that system failure can be reduced by up to 95% by performing regular preventive maintenance. Many schools focus on awareness and education, but fail to practice the sustainable management of utilities.
