Facilities management

Our communities are full of public and private facility assets (greenspace and built infrastructure) that require management and maintenance support.

Keeping these assets running optimally is crucial to retaining their value to communities and to avoiding the long term financial risks associated with underperforming assets.

Nelmac is well-placed to oversee facilities management, given the diverse array of services required – from occupier and stakeholder engagement, to building and landscape maintenance and construction to civil, electrical and general engineering work.

Nelmac's facility management team are constantly seeking to optimise the 'running' of a facility and maximise its availability for use. Whether it’s an expansive greenspace, a civic building or community housing complex, Nelmac's systematic approach to managing maintenance requirements ensures that all usability, regulatory and compliance obligations are met.

We create and maintain positive relationships with stakeholders. When essential repairs or maintenance necessitate disruption to stakeholders, our teams engage with those affected parties to clearly communicate our plans. Keeping everyone well-informed is key to building strong relationships.
