Why facilities management teams are turning to expertly integrated services

Bywaters understands the pressures faced by facilities management teams, particularly when their clients demand an expert service that maximises recycling and promotes landfill diversion.

The job of facilities managers in maintaining and improving a building is difficult enough when faced with budget cuts, cost reductions, increased responsibilities and limited staff, while achieving compliance standards.

Especially when Facilities managers are also expected to improve recycling levels, promote resource management and bring about even more carbon reduction.

FM’s are under pressure from all directions to ensure that their waste practices stand up to scrutiny. Customers, staff, shareholders, investors, environmental agencies and the government all want to know that businesses are reducing their impact on the environment, meeting legislation and managing their waste in the most cost effective and sustainable way.

Using just one waste management company to handle waste for a multi-tenanted building means one point of contact, one central report and one supplier to manage. Environmental performance can be tracked and evaluated in a more standardised, quicker and easier way.

Responsibility for recycling and waste in multi-tenanted buildings can mean FM’s are managing multiple suppliers, each with different measurement standards, which makes performance benchmarking almost impossible.

Bywater’s facilities management solutions are adaptable to most requirements. From audits to full management solutions, we can support you (and your clients) to provide an efficient, sustainable service that enhances your reputation.

It takes a great partnership to get the job done!

Today’s facility managers face many challenging problems including:

  • Controlling Costs & Dealing with Budget Constraints
  • Managing regulatory and compliance standards
  • Controlling Vendor Management
  • Ensuring that the facility is always functionally operational and safe

Waste management may not be a sexy issue, but from a cost perspective, it’s an increasingly important one. The best waste management operators are in fact recycling businesses that just happen to process a bit of residual waste.

With the right partnership, you can incorporate sustainability into facilities management. Practicing lean management is an effective way to identify waste and reduce service management costs. With lean thinking, you hone in on value and identify wasteful practices.

Bywater’s wins NHS sustainability awards with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

To help our clients, we have designed a bespoke template which enables waste audit processing much more quickly and efficiently than ever before. Innovative use of the app for the waste industry transforms what was previously a paperwork exercise.

While working within budget limitations has always been a challenge, today’s facility managers are increasingly being pressured to do more with less.

Whether it is budget cuts, cost reduction efforts, managing more outsourced vendors, or an increase in overall responsibilities, maintaining and improving a building is incredibly difficult with more work to do and less money to do it.

Our experience and expertise have allowed us to develop recycling and resource management solutions for a broad range of sectors including commercial, industrial, construction, health and municipal.

What’s more given that businesses are under pressure from all directions to ensure that their waste practices stand up to scrutiny, we can demonstrate to customers, staff, shareholders and the government how much organisations are reducing their impact on the environment, meeting legislation and managing their waste in the most cost effective way.

Some of the UK’s best-known brands, including Land Securities, O2 and Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Trust use Bywaters to manage their waste in a sustainable, cost-effective and legally compliant manner.
