Asset Management

Detailed service offering

We offer asset management utilising our fully customisable asset management system ADAMM thus ensuring the greatest efficiency and value for our clients.

 

Desktop Information Gathering​

  • Workshop with site manager to gather information and knowledge.

  • Record any existing asset register content in ADAMM

  • Review available as-built documentation and O&M manuals adding content to OneDrive and relevant links in ADAMM

  • Where no digital O&M are available Building-Performance shall organise OCR (optical character recognition scanning of all documentation – client to reimburse at 100% any 3rd party scanning fees incurred)

  • Review content of previous asset condition reports and input relevant information to ADAMM.

Initial Site Audit

  • Up to 1 day onsite by Audit team (2-3 members) per 50,000m2 NLA/GLA or Property 

  • Visual inspection of all major and accessible building assets in operation

  • Undertake O&M and as-built cross check to confirm validity

  • Photograph all major asset items

  • Capture condition and nameplate information for all major and accessible building assets to allow.

ADAMM Content Management

Throughout the contract life Building-Performance shall continue to work with client to ensure ADAMM has accurately calculated the agreed fields for all major assets (both existing and future installed). Sample fields to be included below;

  • Category

  • Sub-Category

  • Asset ID (Unique national identifier which includes local asset name)

  • Type (Description of assets specifics)

  • Life Cycle (Anticipated lifespan of asset based on ATO/CIBSE/AIRAH/ASHRAE etc)

  • Condition - High Level (Comments on non-invasive condition inspections by engineers)

  • Schedule for identified asset improvement (i.e. list of timeframes to rectify issues)

  • Replacement Value Estimate (non QS value)

  • Quantity

  • Make, Model No & Serial No of Assets

Ongoing Asset Performance Benchmarking 

Carried out in line with CIBSE guide M frequency for auditing or as agreed based on asset type:

  • Visual Inspection of condition

  • Thermal imaging of all assets identified to be consuming 2.5 kWe of greater

  • Vibration Analysis of all accessible rotating assets

  • Power Analysis (Current and Voltage logging) of all of all assets consuming 2.5 kWe of greater

 

This benchmarking will not replace current maintenance or legislative requirements for audits, rather it is aimed to ensure progressive detrition of asset performance is captured for the use of Strategic asset planning.

 

Energy Auditing & Tracking (NABERS where applicable)

  • Annual Level 1 energy audits by a suitably qualified energy auditor including entry to all site plantrooms

  • Photo record and engineer’s notes provided in ADAMM linked to relevant asset

  • Work with BMS contractors to set up BMS trends required were available

  • Monthly remote login to site BMS and Quarterly site inspections

  • Live linked reporting and identification of energy waste

  • Includes live informal NABERS reports but excludes formal NABERS assessment (add $1,500 per formal assessment excl. lodgement fee)

Maintenance Audits

Maintenance audits review the performance, processes and accounting processes of maintenance contractors.

 

The audit is aimed to ascertain overall performance, they do not replace the day to day monitoring carried out by site management, rather they create a standardized overview index and score which can be used to make strategic decisions when renewing or reviewing maintenance contracts. 

  • Undertake review of all service maintenance contractors i.e. (Elec, Mech, BMS & Hyd)

  • Review PPM register against actual evidence of maintenance

  • Review Maintenance Log Books, Service Callouts and Reports

  • Work with client to complete CIBSE Guide M Maintenance audit questionnaire to provide a maintenance score for relevant contractors. 

Detailed Reporting (Excel linked)

Setup up to of any 3 (three) customised reports per $10m of portfolio value. These reports shall be Microsoft Excel based and use the live linked ADAMM content to ensure the report and graphing is accurate and relevant to asset managers requirements. Following year 1 an allowance for up to 2hrs p.a per report of report modification is allowed each year.

Asset Overview Reports & Dashboard (Power BI) 

 

1 (One) power BI license will be provide linked to the client Admin account.. An additional ADMIN license is included for every $100m of portfolio. Power BI transforms ADAMM’s data into rich visuals. Building-Performance shall setup up to 3 (three) portfolio Power BI reports per $10m of portfolio value along with 1 (one) power BI report per building. Power BI training will also be given.

Due Diligence

Detailed Service Offering

We offer full Due Diligence advice on building services to navigate the environmental, regulatory and financial aspects of the property market. 

We can help you develop a strategic approach and provide recommendations to confirm environmental and yield assumptions for an energy asset acquisition, demonstrate your Environmental, Social and Governance credentials during sale, or understand the costs associated with regulatory changes for your property portfolio.

 

Our recommendations will enable full knowledge of the assets and building services to limit risk, pursue opportunities and maximise returns.
