B&ES unveils new SFG20

Last week saw the launch of the new SFG20, which offers bespoke maintenance models for specific building types including schools, commercial offices and banks.

Designed for contractors, consultants and end-users, the SFG20 web service allows clients, consultants and contractors to customise maintenance regimes to streamline the tendering, budget and compliance process.

B&ES Publications chief executive Bruce Kirton said: “SFG20 has long been recognised as the backbone to the building engineering services maintenance industry.

“But with that recognition comes the responsibility to help our customers work efficiently and deliver against austerity budgets.

“The new SFG20 rationalises the way clients, consultants and contractors work together, streamlining the tendering process and associated project management.”

The new three-part SFG20 is comprised of:

  • Core: Dynamic web service with over 400 industry standard maintenance specifications covering all principle types of heating, cooling and ventilation, installation plant, and electrical services, complete with regular technical updates.
  • Customiser Compliance: The new Customiser tool allows users to create a bespoke building maintenance task library, including addition of new non-core tasks such as fabric maintenance, and print bespoke booklets of applicable standards.
    Customiser includes links to all relevant statutory/ legal obligations and references, together with regular updates to define compliant maintenance.
  • Customiser Service Model: Enables users to prioritise maintenance regimes using simple criticality ratings to model multiple ‘fit for function’ service regimes that avoid under or over maintaining assets.
    Pre-defined functional models (such as schools, retail, offices) allow users to refine their specific requirements.
    Client/site-specific data can then be printed as a customised pdf or downloaded into tender documents and FM software (subject to licence) as required.
