PropTech company, WeMaintain, has secured a three-year deal with serviced office provider, Workspace, for the provision of lift maintenance solutions to all its 56 sites across London.
Under the terms of the deal, which began on 1 April, WeMaintain will provide its solutions to Workspace properties throughout their London portfolio. It will also install its proprietary Internet of Things technology, which gives building owners and managers greater knowledge of the condition of their critical equipment and other assets in real time.
Commenting on the agreement, Tom Harmsworth, UK Managing Director of WeMaintain, said: “We’re delighted to be working with a company like Workspace and we look forward to bringing the highest standards of lift maintenance to their 56 sites across the capital.
“Our IoT solution on these lifts will help Workspace better understand traffic flow through the buildings, where money on upgrades can be better spent and to start to predict faults earlier.
“Our team has extensive experience in the flexible commercial property sector, and we’re excited to make Workspace’s sites in the capital more efficient, more sustainable, and more enjoyable for tenants and occupants.
“Once our IoT sensors are installed in Workspace lifts, we’ll be able to give site managers access to high-quality real-time data not previously available to them, letting them know if there is deterioration of critical equipment and reacting quickly to resolve any issues that might arise.”
Andrew Watts, Head of Facilities Management at Workspace said: “We’re excited at the prospect of working with WeMaintain and how their use of technology can enhance our service delivery across our portfolio. In addition to improving day-to-day reliability, we’re also keen to see how data can assist in meeting our carbon emission targets through condition-based maintenance and reducing energy consumption.”
