Multi-Utilities Company - ISO 41001 Audit
Ervia is a commercial semi-state company that provides strategic national gas, water and dark fibre broadband infrastructure and services that underpin the growth of the Irish economy.
They were seeking an independent, impartial and experienced partner to support their developing Facilities Management (FM) team on their journey towards compliance with ISO 41001, the new Management Systems Standard for FM.
As a relatively new organisation, bringing together several independent utility bodies, Ervia recognised the opportunity to implement a framework which would reflect the new international standard.
1. Assess. We began with an analysis of Ervia’s current Facilities Management systems. This included a face-to-face meeting, enabling us to gain a proper understanding of their specific operational context.
2. Advise. We produced a draft report which highlighted gaps between the current set-up and the standards defined by ISO 41001, along with clear recommendations that would improve alignment with the Standard. This was followed by a further face-to-face meeting with the leadership team to clarify and discuss the recommendations and logic.
3. Action. A final report was produced, containing a template of clear actions to implement on the journey towards compliance. Ongoing support remained on hand as and when required.

Our rich FM know-how ensures our recommendations deliver genuine efficiency gains, as well as a potential rubber-stamp.
Our support has enabled the client to become Republic of Ireland’s first organisation to align itself with ISO 41001!
“We recognised at once that ISO 41001 would be a global game-changer. As a market leader and innovator, we wanted to become the first accredited Irish organisation, and KEY was our first choice for a partner who would get us there”Patrick McAuliffe
