ISS leads UBS to attain ISO asset management accreditation

UBS, a key client of ISS, has been awarded ISO 55001 accreditation for asset management.

UBS has an integrated facilities management contract with ISS and the organisations worked in partnership to achieve the accreditation.

The collaboration ensured that recommendations made by the manufacturers are aligned to essential technical requirements which in turn minimise down-time and ultimately ensure the best quality and value for money for UBS.

Speaking about the ISO 55001 accreditation, Jason Clark, Executive Director and Regional Head of Property Management at UBS, commented: “I am pleased to advise that the IFM team has attained accreditation to the international standard ISO 55001.

“ISO 55001 is a quality management framework for managing assets within the context of an organisation, specifically for engineering asset management at UBS 5 Broadgate.

“We set the objective of achieving the ISO 55001 standard in 2016. This accreditation is recognition of our integrated and collaborative approach to facilities management and the partnership between UBS, ISS and other service partners.”

With the ISS investment in latest cutting-edge technology, the structured management of the asset data enables ISS to commence its intellectual management of systems and services, reducing risk and increasing performance by optimising maintenance, improving value, and ultimately improving user experience. The standards enable ISS to now drive this showcase into the business to deliver improved benchmarking and consistent delivery, improving standards and client value.

Martin Harvey, Director of Engineering & Asset Management at ISS, added: “The real benefit of the accreditation is that there is now a complete and comprehensive asset management policy, and associated delivery practises which enables the Operational Team to manage and maintain the physical assets of our client UBS.

“Delivery of detailed CAFM systems and planned frequency-based maintenance is seen as the ill-informed approach to maintenance in the 21st century. From a people point of view, the standard focuses on people, their competencies and training, and also looks at succession planning. And most importantly, UBS knows that they have a capable and competent service partner running their buildings and operating in the most efficient way.”
