15 Years Building Efficiency across all sectors.
What our clients say
Savills WA have utilised HFM Asset Management to provide engineering consulting services for the past 10 years.
Their knowledge and combined experience in; asset management, facility management, energy & water efficiency and engineering has helped Savills WA manage their buildings more effectively and ultimately provide value back to the owners.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend HFM Asset Management to other customers.
“Primewest has utilised the services of HFM over the past years to ensure NABERS and CBD compliance across our portfolio; review, assess and provide advice on plant lifecycle management; tender and negotiate our energy and water contracts, and provide valuable ongoing technical support in relation to our assets.
HFM were instrumental in coordinating the works at one of our West Perth assets which improved the NABERS Rating from 0 Stars to 5 Stars and also in maintaining that performance over a number of years, this dramatic rise in the NABERS rating along with the enormous reduction in electricity costs resulted in lower outgoings and greater tenant retention at the property.
More recently HFM has provided a vital role in the refurbishment of 1 Forrest Place, a heritage listed mixed-use property in the CBD. With HFM’s assistance, the building is targeting NABERS 4.5 Stars through mechanical, electrical and lighting design”
I have worked with Ian and the staff at HFM for at least the last 10 years. They remain my first port of call for matters related to all things energy including electricity procurement, NABERS ratings and advice and importantly lifecycle costing for commercial property assets.
In my last role, with the assistance and guidance of the HFM team, we were able to achieve the second 5.5 star NABERS Energy rated building in WA, without Greenpower. This was a significant achievement through a close collaboration between our staff and the HFM team.
I would be happy to recommend HFM as the leading contractor in their field.
I have worked with HFM for the last 3 ½ years and have found their service exceptional over that time. We engaged HFM to monitor our buildings efficiency via their TMAR reporting and advise of any issues and potential improvements to enhance NABERS ratings and tenant satisfaction.
With the help of HFM we reached and maintained a 5 ½ star NABERS Energy Rating 130 Stirling Street following development through to the buildings sale in April 2014.
HFM continue to provide us the latest information on building efficiency initiatives and recommendations tailored specifically to our buildings during our quarterly Energy Management Plan meetings.
It hadn’t occurred to us to engage a building efficiency consultant, but a conversation about energy efficiency initiatives, while HFM were conducting a NABERS assessment for the landlord, lead to us engaging HFM to do exactly that.
This turned out to be one of the best things we have ever done and has started TSA down a path of significant savings on energy, environmental sustainability and an improved environment for our staff.
For us, what’s sets HFM apart, is their ability to convey their technical expertise into real-world solutions, where the benefits can be easily understood by both the business and the facilities team.
The high quality of service provided by HFM was not only aligned with our standards and requirements, but also the guidance HFM provided to our team throughout the process was clear, explaining complex concepts such as cost drivers of energy into easy-to-understand information for everyone involved.
HFM’s detailed examination of the contracted terms & conditions was key for the VenuesLive team to get an accurate understanding of the risks and obligations involved in energy supply contracts.”
“The Administrator Training and subsequent Consultation Support from HFM was clear and simple and delivered with an understanding of our objectives. The face-to-face training with Tayla was well paced and focus was given to the key areas required for the team. During the initial SNAP rollout, time was given in a very flexible manner during the weekly consultation period plus quick responses to more urgent ad-hoc questions.”
“My role as Building Manager at this residential building is made easier each day with the use of myBuildings™. This is a very streamlined system that allows us to make direct contact with contractors that visit the site to perform the many maintenance and safety services we require to be fully compliant with safety, health and lifestyle requirements for tenancy within a residential complex.
The use of this program provides a one-stop shop for all of our needs in sourcing quotes, checking contracts, induction of contractors, requesting works, keeping a record of our contract and monthly reporting, keeping accurate contractor details, maintaining insurance records and for incident reporting within the complex. We have used this system now for nearly 5 years and I very quickly became fully conversant with this system when introduced as it makes so much sense and is extremely user-friendly.”
HFM Asset Management was engaged to complete Life Cycle Costing, Asset Register & General Risk Compliance audits for several properties within the Silver Chain portfolio. This audit covered 37 buildings across WA and SA. The audits provided Silver Chain with a detailed asset register of serviceable plant and equipment along with a high-level holistic assessment of the overall condition of the building asset at each of the leased and owned properties.
The audit included a capital expenditure (CAPEX) budget with a list of any risk items and a comprehensive asset register. The info was uploaded into the myBuildings asset management and maintenance cloud-based system to facilitate future building services works. Read more »
