Saving money through proactive facility management

THE STORY.

“Time is Money.”

As the old saying goes, what is your time worth? What if we told you hiring a Facility Manager would not only save you time but also could save you money, especially if your holdings include multiple commercial properties or expansive dwellings like apartments, retail or office spaces. We’ll tell you how.

Regular Preventative Maintenance Saves Over Time

If you’ve held or managed commercial properties for any length of time, you know that the most costly issues that arise are the unexpected. From plumbing to HVAC to roofing repairs, these unexpected costs are often not covered by your commercial insurance policies — leaving you and your partners to foot the bill.

Create a schedule for each of your commercial buildings and focus on the basics:

  • Replace aging HVAC units
  • Replace filters regularly according to the unit’s recommendations
  • Conduct regular inspections of piping, particularly in service areas of large buildings
  • Inspect roofs regularly before extreme weather seasons

If any of this sounds daunting, partnering with a trusted Facility Management Contractor like Rubicon Contractors can kickstart your preventative maintenance. 

Reducing Ongoing Costs 

Hiring a reliable facility manager or contractor can also reduce your ongoing costs. For example, an expert who is well-versed in your particular landscaping can save you labor costs, money spent on water, and money spent replacing dead plants that you over-fertilize or over/under water. If you’re looking to reduce costs inside of your building as well, a facility manager can help make sure that utilities are used by tenants in an energy-efficient manner and help troubleshoot problems before they become costly.

Keeping Tenants Happy

If you’re spending half your day answering calls from tenants about leaky faucets and clogged toilets, you’re wasting time. Let a trusted person handle these types of issues so that you can focus on what you do best — growing your portfolio and expanding your business.
