Site & Facility Management Factors For Your Home

Proper site and facility management mean developing, delivering and monitoring the project from its initial occupation to the continued maintenance of the project. The best builders work to uphold, protect and safeguard the interests of the residents and the infrastructure. The scope of work includes security, accessibility, housekeeping, landscaping, building maintenance, operation of elevators, generators, water softening plant, sewage treatment plant, water recycling system, piped gas system, solar fencing, and maintenance of the Club House.


Power Points At Parking Places

With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles, the need for power points at parking places is growing. The power points would benefit from local power storage. Vehicle batteries can be topped up with energy from on-site power storage such as bio-diesel or solar power generators. A recharge station with power points would allow vehicles to feed their electricity back into the grid. Public power points in car park areas are also convenient for property maintenance staff.


Disabled Friendly

Persons with a disability would depend on facilities designed to augment, maintain or enhance their functional capabilities. Inclusion of these facilities throughout the site is a positive step towards helping disabled people lead a convenient, safe and independent life. Public areas need to be thoughtfully planned with provision for braille symbols and auditory signals in elevators, provision of compatible toilets with grab bar, wheelchair facilities and installation of ramps.

A disabled-friendly property is built with the concept that the design should work for the person rather than the person working to fit the design. The facilities meet the needs of people across a range of disabilities and life stages; and they can be altered to meet the changing needs of the person.


Grass Pavers

Grass pavers are an environmentally-friendly pavement system that uses concrete or asphalt to create beautiful driveways, lanes or parking areas. A grass paver creates a visually appealing parking area or driveway that blends in with the surrounding lawn and other natural features while providing a strong surface that protects the underlying grass. A grass paver system has many benefits over standard surfaces.

Grass paver systems are sustainable and environmentally-friendly. They are made from recycled plastics containing large percentages of post-consumer materials. Therefore, these systems can easily be recycled at the end of their lifecycle. Since a grass paver system uses soil or loose fill materials, it is permeable to rainwater. During rain, the water soaks through the surface, rather than pooling and risking flooding. The grass paver system also helps to safeguard the water supply by returning rainwater to the local water table. A grass paver system can be a cost-effective way to create pavement that is both attractive and durable. The entire system can be installed in a matter of days, at half the cost of concrete, and requires less specialized equipment and labour.
