Formulating a plan for maintenance of facilities correlates with the type of activity, the complexity of buildings, and their locations

The comprehensive approach within FM includes preventive maintenance, implementation of safety measures, as well as regular inspections and technical repairs. Therefore, maintenance of facilities is crucial in various industries, such as the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries, automotive and aviation industries, as well as energy, metallurgy, and others.

Maintenance of each architectural structure in operation is approached carefully, considering all factors relevant to creating the most efficient long-term management plan.

The plan is adapted to the purpose of the facility, its area, and any fragmentation into multiple work units and locations. Locations themselves can be determining factors, especially if they are not easily accessible (e.g., industrial zones near highways).

Types of business spaces

Commercial facilities represent physical structures and spaces serving various professional purposes. Most business systems have separate administrative buildings, which may be separate from production and storage spaces.

They include administrative offices, serving bureaucratic and other business activities, as well as meetings and facilitating collaboration among employees. Therefore, it is essential to keep everything clean and tidy from floor to ceiling: movable objects, carpets, upholstered furniture, woodwork, glass surfaces, etc.

In factories, production facilities, and material processing halls, adequate working conditions must be ensured daily to prevent accidents, injuries, and production process interruptions.

Warehouses and distribution centers focus on storing and distributing goods for manufacturing companies, online trading, logistics, and supply chain management.

The fourth group of commercially designated facilities includes supermarkets (shopping centers and individual retail stores) where products and/or services are offered.

Healthcare facilities are also business premises requiring special sanitary treatment due to their purpose. Hospitals, clinics, medical offices, and homes for the elderly and palliative care require continuous maintenance of hygiene, at the highest level.

Equal attention regarding cleanliness and technical correctness should be given to educational institutions (schools, colleges). In classrooms, libraries, sports halls, laboratories, offices, a large number of students/employees regularly stay, so maintenance of facilities of this kind should be carried out continuously.

Hospitality businesses (restaurants, hotels, resorts, spas, event halls, etc.) provide accommodation and catering services, necessitating constant attention to hygiene.

Checking the HVAC system’s functionality, servicing elevators and fire extinguishers, inspecting electrical, plumbing, and sewage installations – are just part of what Invekta’s technical service performs.

The goal of preventive and regulatory measures is to maintain optimal air quality, control temperature and energy efficiency, prevent disruptions in water supply and drainage, fire protection, and servicing machinery and equipment for maximum productivity.

In this way, expensive repairs, premature equipment replacement, and work stoppages can be prevented. And, undoubtedly, align the facility with regulations and industrial standards that ensure the safety and well-being of all users.

Green space management

External and internal greenery requires constant care to fulfill its aesthetic and practical function. The exterior of a commercial building cannot be neat and beautiful if lawns are not mowed regularly, and hedges, shrubs, and flowers are not pruned as scheduled.
