Facility Information Management Services
In addition to traditional architecture and interior design, our practice includes a special studio called RSP i_SPACE. The i_SPACE team works with all the information associated with the built environment and offers the following perspective.
Strategic Facility Planning
Knowing you have the right buildings in the right place and time is critical to operational and financial excellence.
Yet most organizations aren’t organized in a way that enables and supports agile facility decision making. Often, facility information isn’t centralized or easily analyzed. The pressure to make short-term decisions often over-ride what may be best in the long-term. Having the right strategic planning information and tools can enhance and enable the decision-making process. At any point of time. The trick is to make current and forecast data available, agile and actionable. Thus allowing companies to make better choices. Faster and easier. RSP i_SPACE can help you…
- Study where you are now (in both qualitative and quantitative terms)
- Define where you want to go in terms of long- and short-term facility strategy Prepare a well-documented strategic recommendation that outlines the specific actions that can move your organization forward
- Set up a system to organize and synthesize timely and accurate information so that agile decisions can be made
Know what to fix when so it doesn’t cost you more down the road.
One of a facility manager’s most important functions is working to assure that an organization’s real property assets are available, operating as intended, and secure from future threats which might degrade or interrupt service availability. RSP i_SPACE Asset Preservation process and information management services include diagnostic and information management services to identify and quantify the appearance, functionality and life expectancy of facilities — plan actions to mitigate deficiencies; and establish or improve programs to proactively maintain and/or replace major facility components when necessary.
Know that your workspace is working for you. And your employees.
Technology, changing workplace dynamics, and generational attitudes are dramatically altering the way we use our workspace. RSP i_SPACE can help you answer key questions about how you really use the space you have, if the space is being used as designed, where there are inefficiencies, and what strategies and options are available for optimizing your workspace.
Know the environmental impact of your facility and easily monitor the return-on-investment.
Sustainability is a necessity. Whether your goal is to reduce energy costs, reduce waste or improve the health and wellbeing of employees, we can help you monitor the return-on-investment of just about any sustainability strategy. Tracking the data associated with your sustainability strategies can help align environmental and financial impacts, proving value.
Trust a “single source of truth” for diverse facility information
Web enabled technology and information exchange is now readily achievable, making facility-related knowledge not only nice to have, but necessary to be competitive in today’s world. Yet knowing which facility-related software and technology is right for your organization and/or using it efficiently and expansively requires non-biased help from an expert. RSP i_SPACE can develop and implement a transition plan, which not only secures a client’s legacy facility information, but provides a stable, well-supported platform for ongoing facility management operations. The transition may also introduce newly adopted international interoperability standards and benchmarks providing for more efficient process and information management methods.
Know precisely how every square inch of your facility or facilities are used.
RSP i_SPACE can create new or verify existing space documentation via measured surveys, CAD documentation and space utilization reporting. The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) promotes its internationally-recognized Standard Method of Space Management, which RSP uses to assist clients and their tenants or departments to acknowledge and possibly pay for their use of space. By using this methodology, you can benchmark and manage your space utilization both internally and externally.
