Building the Future of Facilities Management


The world is changing rapidly with speeding technology. Human eyes can’t monitor all things at the same time. As technology continues to impact every industry, facility management has also undergone a significant transformation in recent years.

With the emergence of new technologies, we can predict and improve facility management in the future. New technologies, customer requirements and advanced management techniques will all collectively impact and change the management industry for good. 

The team at Bricks + Agent have put together some of the trends that will take facility management to new heights in future.

Internet of things transforms the facility management industry

Exchanging data with inter-connected devices is possible with the Internet of things. This hands-free approach not only makes data more accessible but also increases speed and efficiency.

Smart wireless sensors monitors are the form of IoT that collect and even communicate data regarding a property’s management and its performance. These sensors help facility managers by providing insight into the business. All this data is used to optimise energy consumption and efficiently improves space occupancy.

Other tools like thermostats and actuators also help to reduce energy usage by evaluating data. It is easy to identify and resolve problems in a faster and easier way with the various forms of the Internet of a thing.


Smart tasks with artificial intelligence

The use of artificial intelligence shows a bright future for facility management. It gives facility managers the ability to oversee daily operations for a more enhanced experience.

Robotic technology is becoming necessary with a consistent change in technology. The use of AI reduces risks to human lives as it completes the task in a more systemised manner.

Machine learning is also a part of artificial intelligence that lets facility management and organisations predict the life of an asset.  With the number of capabilities, AI helps to enhance the performance of the facility management industry.


Advanced analysis with big data

For smart analysis here comes Big Data with the Internet of Things. Big Data is used to analyse and extract information with data sets that are complex to be handled otherwise with traditional data-processing software.

Big Data enables facility managers to increase business value by predicting energy consumption through the data collected. By analysing data, a smart decision can be made to lower costs and other strategies for providing better facilities in future.


Revolution with mobile technology

Mobile technology has created a revolution in the facility management industry. The usage of software solutions on smartphones or tablets allows facility managers to take software along with them to their workplaces for better facility management. Managers can control projects more efficiently by tracking work in real time to reduce downtime.

The facility management industry is consistently being transformed with the invention of new technologies. These exciting developments improve the overall performance of business with higher productivity and increased customer satisfaction.

The advancements have eased the task of facility managers. By implementing the modern solutions of facility management, they can improve the operational and financial outlook of their organisation.

Stepping out of the industry four years ago and moving interstate to expand a frozen yoghurt chain that has gone from 1 to 4 stores in the time he has been involved. This was recently sold to Made Group. Real estate has always been in his blood and it was a natural fit to start Bricks + Agent given the amount of insight he has into the industry as a whole. Having seen how all different forms of traditional marketing was used to the direction that it is now heading today, we think we have come up with a truly unique proposition that fits into the current state of the property maintenance market.
