About us

Welcome to Facility Management (FM)

In order to ensure the ongoing operation of buildings, building systems and building services installations, it is important that these are regularly checked or preventive measures are taken.

We are responsible for the adoption, operation, inspection, maintenance and repair of buildings and building services installations. If we are able to carry out the work ourselves, we do so; otherwise we coordinate, control and monitor the outsourcing of the task.

Systems on our sites requiring monitoring are also kept in focus by us, for you, as recurring inspections. We are also responsible for ensuring that our locations are supplied with water, heat, cold, etc.

Together with you, the user, we try to find solutions to restore the functionality of the system. To ensure that you also have the right contact person for your issue, the Control Center (LST) is the central collection point for faults or functional restrictions of the buildings or building services installations.
