How often is the full operation of a building only reviewed once construction has finished and the building has been handed over to the occupier?
Only at that stage do the true challenges in effectively maintaining and operating the building become fully apparent. Inaccessible plant, poorly located controls and high-level equipment requiring costly solutions to repair and replace are just some of the frustrations facing Facility Manager’s once they take ownership of a new building.
AA Projects FM Designer role aims to remove those built-in difficulties by being an integral part of the design team from the first phases of design, through the construction phase and into handover and operations.
We integrate a soft landings process to ensure the transition from construction to occupation is smooth and that operational performance is optimised at the following stages:
- Strategic Definition
- Preparation & Brief
- Concept Design
- Developed Design
- Technical Design
- Handover & Close Over
- In Use
