Here at Key FM, our approach to FM l operates with 5 clear definitions, which we term the 5 virtues of True FM. These recognise that optimal performance hinges on experienced and independent consultancy, and solutions that are innovative, comprehensive and adaptive.
We have, and will continue to, develop many different types of relationships, however it is our intention that these always reflect something we like to call True Partnership. This true partnership approach covers all aspects of all business, but over the coming quarter we are going to focus on:
- Best in class value add Partners
- Academic/Thought leadership Partners
- International Network Partners
Today we would like to highlight our latest Academic/thought leadership partnerships with The University of Western Scotland, as, On Tuesday 12th February, we had our first meeting to kick off this partnership, supported by Innovate UK.
The idea behind this partnership is to work with the University and their wealth of sector/discipline experts to augment our own FM expertise and create a world’s first framework to provide any business, or indeed building, a roadmap to the autonomous building (autonomous building is a building that operates varying degrees of its assets and functions autonomously without the need for intervention from the workforce around repetitive and administrative tasks). The partnership will create clear methods to deliver very real paths for any business, no matter the point they are on the journey, to have real understanding of both the digitisation of the operations and the building, and also the efficiencies, and ultimately the return on investment. This project will encompass, but will not be limited to, all traditional application environments available in the built environment, and this will then evolve to integrate Digital twins, virtual reality, augmented reality, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, autonomous Smart building functions , predictive and conditional based monitoring, nano second secure transactions and so much more.
If you want to start or evolve your own Smart Estate or autonomous Building journey then please contact us for more information! OR if you want to follow the journey then please watch this space, it has only just begun!!
