B&ES launches new Definitive SFG20 Building Maintenance Standard website

The B&ES has launched a new customer facing website for SFG20, the definitive standard for building maintenance, which covers all main types of heating, cooling and ventilation equipment.

Service Model subscribers will now also be able to read service timings as standard on the website and there are new functions on the website to make performing everyday tasks and managing schedules easier.

In addition, users will be better able to organise their models, with new functionality which enables the creation of sub-folders, ideal for organising assets into categories, departmental divisions and aligning activities with service partner delivery.

Commenting, B&ES Publications Chief Executive, Bruce Kirton, said:

“SFG20 remains the leading specification for maintenance standards. The breadth of activities covered is continually growing, and with our technical committee responsible for the on-going technical updating of SFG20, subscribers can be sure they are kept up-to-date with the latest legislation and industry best practise, enabling them to remain compliant cost-effectively.”

He added:

“The addition of service timings for Service Model subscribers further strengthens the role SFG20 plays in tendering processes and will enable subscribers to keep closer control of costs by giving them a benchmark for the time taken to complete certain activities.”

International Workplace's Tony Booth commented:

“SFG will enable building managers and clients to have a greater degree of confidence that the facilities and equipment under their control are being managed in line with current standards and best practice.

“The ability to be updated with changing legislative requirements will enable stakeholders to take appropriate action and remain on the right side of compliance.”

Tony added:

“The employment of SFG20 service schedules will assist in the tender process by ensuring those specifying the works do so in line with current requirements and the needs of the environment to be managed.

“A service like SFG20 will assist in the simplification of building and equipment maintenance and help in the avoidance of any doubt as to what is required, how frequent it should be done and by whom.”
