Maintaining a commercial space can be something of a minefield. As the person responsible for maintaining your commercial space, we understand that there are many complexities and uncertainties around who is responsible for what is needed, how it should be done, what certification is needed and what the cost for this should be. To do all of this effectively, you’ve got to be something of an expert in nearly every technical field imaginable.
Of course, for most businesses, employing specialists in every field of maintenance is an unjustifiable cost and all too often the services are overly complex due to legislation, compliance requirements or technical analysis and certification.
As a business, ACI FM aim to bridge this gap by taking ownership of the technical services our clients need and delivering them in a way that is understandable, cost effective and quality assured. Our mission is to make facilities management easy.
In order to meet this mission, we need to make the maintenance activities, certification and the associated services as seamless as possible by giving the right mix of personal service, tailored to individual business needs and applying technological integrations that will enhance the services delivered, making it easier for our clients to purchase the services they need, when they need them and, importantly, fully understand them.
One of the many trends we have seen in recent months is the forward thinking of warehousing and logistics clients in their approach to returning to work safely and how walkways and parking bays have played a major part in that.
For many of these businesses, MHE and heavy good movements are an integral part of the daily operations and this presents a risk to both pedestrians and other vehicles in and around the warehouse. The easiest and most cost-effective way to manage this risk is by having clearly defined line markings that are both durable and bright so as to reduce the risks to all of your staff and visitors, and might just save a life.
If you feel that poor line markings may leave your business, staff and visitors open to unnecessary risk or it’s an area that can quickly be improved with minimal cost, then get in touch with ACI FM.
Our in-house team install walkway, warehouse, pallet bay, loading bay and car park line marks starting from as little as £3.51 plus VAT per linear metre.

While looking at your commercial space and where you may need guidance or clarity on maintenance, repairs or certification, perhaps it’s worth considering a site survey to identify what plant and assets you have, the relevant standards that need to be met and the required certification that accompanies them.
As a facilities management business that directly employs experts in the relevant technical fields, we understand the pressures of wanting to make sure things are done correctly and know that for many businesses, taking a proactive approach to their responsibilities and reducing cost and downtime associated with maintenance activities will serve a great benefit while also removing the uncertainty they may feel when it comes to compliance.
Our typical commercial surveys start from as little as £99 plus VAT and provide all of the site-specific maintenance requirements, listing the relevant standards and importantly, list exactly what must be done on each PPM or maintenance routine in accordance with SFG 20.
For most commercial spaces, there is room for improvement, and it need not cost any more than you are already paying. In most cases, our clients actually save money by centralising their maintenance activities and producing a PPM plan that lists all of the maintenance activities across the year, who is going to complete them, when and importantly, how and to what standard.
If, at the end of the survey and report, all you learn is that you are compliant and working to the right standards, then peace of mind knowing this and having guidance on maintaining this standard will be worth its weight in gold. After all, what you can’t measure, you can’t manage.
So perhaps, if you feel your commercial space could be improved, or if you simply want to review your processes for peace of mind, get in touch with the team at ACI FM and put it right today. You can reach our team at www.acifm.co.uk or call us on 01933 730 071
