Every things facilities management should do in the new normal

The epidemic of COVID-19 has become a driver of reform and has stressed the need to focus resources on the management and service delivery of facilities. All the constructed areas, offices owned or rented, warehouses, retail stores and factories need close attention and custom designs.

Now it is the duty of facilities management departments to discuss protection on the workplace as businesses reopen and workers return to their premises. Key issues to be addressed by facilities administrators in a proper way to maintain activities safely contribute to recommended communication models, partnerships with relevant vendors, and normal pandemic response operating procedures.

Facilities Management matters now more than ever

As businesses reopen, it is critical that facility management teams look at the necessary protocols and measures to properly address black swans, such as the coronavirus pandemic. To formulate and implement a strategy to tackle pandemic-related problems, a group comprising facility management, finance, operations and representatives of HR should be created. The HR staff will contact the workers with activities relating to the workplace. Operational departments should help implement the action plan. The facility manager is responsible for managing outsourced installations. All parties must work together to streamline the organization’s operation.

In order to share the news and information surrounding the work of the organization with its staff, clients and suppliers, a well-defined communication channel should be established. Companies can develop contact protocols to advise workers on developments such as facility closings, facilities reopening and safety protocols. As a separate group of strict needs are added to address the epidemic, the range of resources will expand and become more comprehensive.

The services of cleaning and storage of food would need to be revamped. 

Facility reconfiguration

There are several ways to use digital twins as we start to emerge from our home isolations slowly. When workers come back to work, Office spaces are expected to see a huge change. The digital twin may be used for the purpose of rearranging spaces and how to reconfigure an office for managing the quantities of room required for each employee to retain social distance. It is essential that spaces be adapted rapidly to satisfy evolving demands to reduce market risk.

In a hospital or facility that might potentially serve as a hospital, reconfiguring flows of people and spaces to allow for COVID-19 testing before entry or separation of non-COVID-19 patients can be accomplished inside the digital twin. In addition, key elements to create the computerized maintenance management system can be attached for a facility attribute to allow operators to monitor work orders and ensure that properties operate in parameters.

Smart technology and Artificial Intelligence

Intelligent innovations accelerate almost every component of building automation. The daily work of the FM providers will increase intelligence and efficiency by exploiting technology. The automation of industrial parks, offices, shopping centers, apartment complexes, warehouses, and other public spaces is possible using numerous smart technologies. Using these new innovations, facilities administrators are able to maximize their work time and provide a safer atmosphere for the inhabitants of the premises.

In post-Covid times, intelligent technology can bring greater importance as facilities are gradually being occupied and better monitoring and intelligence is needed in order for buildings to function in a highly complex and diversified occupancy setting. Speedy improvements, remote control, processes and data analytics can bring about the constantly evolving productivity of this occupancy. 

The idea of intelligent buildings encourages facilities management to redefine construction utilization and incorporation into a single environmental framework. All building assets or devices, such as lighting, cameras, locks, HVAC devices, doors or CCTV, have a specific identifier, both of which are completely incorporated into a network. Artificial intelligence and IoT technology enables remote monitoring and control of buildings to boost organizational effectiveness and enhance building maintenance..
