Does Your Facility Need a Sustainable Facilities Management Plan (SFMP)?

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

Many facility managers have a goal of making their facilities more sustainable—but may be without a plan or the time to make that happen.

A Sustainable Facilities Management Plan (SFMP) can develop, implement, and optimize key facility management and operations & maintenance objectives in a manner consistent with CALGreen code requirements, zero-net-energy (ZNE) compliance, and COVID-19 health requirements.

A SFMP is all about that, but it’s also about making facilities last, perform at a level that meets the needs of the organization, managed in a manner that is consistent with the mission, vision, and values of the organization, and most of all, lowering energy usage.

Could Your Facility Benefit From a Sustainable Facilities Management Plan (SFMP)?

CLW Enterprises can efficiently and effectively assist building owners and facility managers with developing, planning, and implementing their own Sustainable Facilities Management Plan (SFMP) for new, remodeled, and existing buildings of all sizes and industries throughout Southern California—enabling them to cut costs and enhance productivity.

We can do that for most any budget and understand that one size does not fit all needs and programs—so we created three distinct packages for FM’s that:

  • only need help preparing an executive summary and business case with the primary goal of securing a supervisor’s approval to move forward and get started with their own SFMP.

  • provide enough information to a FM who is fully capable of developing their own SFMP but who only needs an outline to work off of to complete the development and the rest of the outline’s components for a complete SMFP.

  • for a FM who might be too busy but fully capable, needs assistance from a business provider or consultant, or prefers working with experts in various fields to develop a complete package with little or no management required on their part.

Is Implementing a Sustainable Facilities Management Plan (SFMP) a Good Decision?

It depends on a number of variables. However, healthy, sustainable, and productive facilities allow FM’s “to do more with less and be the enablers of operations and maintenance success.” A sustainable facilities management plan using a foundation of success is an excellent choice to make this happen.

High performance and energy efficient facilities can be more reliable and effective from an operations and maintenance standpoint, thus lowering operating costs and providing best in class maintenance, which enhances the experience of the organization's employees.

The common denominator for all of the benefits noted above is they save money (and usually time as well) and below are some of the key components of a successful SFMP that accomplish this:

  • CALGreen compliant space

  • Improved energy efficiency

  • Healthier indoor environment

  • More productive employees

  • COVID-19 health compliance

If you and your facility have all these items under control and/or covered under your own SFMP or operations and maintenance plan—congratulations, you can delete this message. If not, and there is room for improvement, please let us know if we can help.
