Here are a few simple tips to aid with better facilities and premises management:

1: Extend the lifecycle of all school premises elements from roofs to doors.

2: To save money on reactive maintenance, manage your team and determine their skill set.

3: Organise and plan large and longer-term projects, such as redecoration and maintenance of the building fabric and playgrounds.

4: To enable preventative maintenance to be scheduled accordingly, identify potential problems via monitoring.

5: Keep a log of all work needed, work being done, and work performed.

6: Provide school management teams with useful reports that will aid accurate capital planning and expenditure.

7: One of a school’s biggest costs is energy.  By installing monitoring measures, energy consumption data will show an overview of where money and energy can be saved.
