Whether you are providing soft or hard services, operating in the public or private sectors and operating in the UK or globally, working with us will help you and your facilities management business overcome the challenges you are facing.
The Facilities Management sector is facing a number of strategic drivers of change that will be impacting on your business and may be forcing you to reconsider your business model. Technology and digital transformation are being used to improve productivity and efficiency and are key to deliver truly integrated buildings. With climate change and ESG increasingly visible on corporate agendas, your FM business will need to become a partner in change and sustainability for your clients to be successful. The post-pandemic discussions on the role of offices and the increasingly embedded changes to working patterns and practices are another driver of change that you cannot ignore. FM is a dynamic but fragmented sector. Most M&A activity is being driven by consolidation as larger firms look to manage these strategic drivers of change.
You can trust us to provide you with the expert advice and support to help you overcome those major challenges. We are recognised as one of the most experienced advisory firms for facilities management businesses providing a range of business advisory services. We work with acquisitive FM groups almost continuously giving us extensive and current M&A experience and knowledge.
We have a thorough understanding of technology, which gives us an edge in this growing services space. We can help you negotiate the adoption of technology to improve productivity, give you greater visibility on cost control and help deliver better quality and differentiated services.
Contracts and efficiency
We will help you develop the robust tools and information to help you optimise efficiencies during the delivery of your contracts. You can also work with us to develop partnerships and the co-creation of services to drive growth and meet customer sustainability goals. This can all help to mitigate the pressure on margins and improve overall contract profitability.
Changing offices and working practices
The pandemic has changed working patterns and practices and the role of offices, creating a paradigm shift for outsourced services as the sector refocuses. You are likely to be part of your customers’ response to those changes. Increased working from home and remote working, social distancing and the digitisation of offices are all driving substantial change, such as increased risk sharing, home support for staff and digitisation of buildings as part of reconfiguring facilities and workforce optimisation. We can help you respond to these new demands.
M&A and market consolidation
