- ISO 41001:2018 is the world’s first international FMS standard published in 2018
Fentons Smart Facilities (Pvt) Limited, the Facility Management arm of Hayleys Fentons, reached yet another milestone by being accredited the ISO 41001:2018 certification from SGS Lanka (Pvt) Limited, and becoming the first ISO-certified facility management service provider in Sri Lanka.
The ISO 41001:2018 certification, the world’s first standard for Facility Management Systems (FMS) outlines the best practices and requirements for an effective and efficient facility management system, highlighting the importance of integrating people, processes, places, and technology to create a sustainable and productive environment.
Mr. Hasith Prematillake, the Managing Director of Hayleys Fentons, commented on this achievement, highlighting the immediate and long-term benefits of excellent Facility Management practices, especially in the rapidly developing high-rise developments of Colombo.
“As the demand for managing these facilities grows due to the proliferation of high-rise structures like shopping complexes, condominiums, and office buildings, FM will play a crucial role. Integrating facilities managers during the development phase can significantly reduce maintenance problems and costs post-occupancy. Proper Facility Management also contributes to factors such as human comfort, operational processes, sustainability, and cost control.” Stated Mr. Prematillake
