“Being awarded this contract in the face of intense competition, speaks volumes for our innovative approach to utilising technology and sustainability in our day to day service offering,” commented Julian Khalil, Director Soft FM, Farnek.
“We will be using our smart watch technology for example, to service remote areas more efficiently and we were the first company in the UAE to be certified to the cleaning industry management standard for green buildings (CIMS-GB), which effectively endorses our ability to deliver sustainable, high quality, customer focused cleaning
services,” added Khalil.
The CIMS-GB standard is also tailored to provide Farnek’s customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Existing Buildings; Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) Green Building Rating System.
The LEED programme aims to encourage and support building owners and operators to become more environmentally responsible and use resources efficiently, an issue that is becoming increasingly important as Dubai aims to achieve smart, sustainable city status by 2021.
Farnek’s proposals always clearly demonstrate its compliance with six core principles - quality systems, service delivery, human resources, health, safety, environmental stewardship and management commitment.
As a part of Farnek’s sustainability strategy, management focus on plans to conserve natural resources, as well as analysing the environmental impact of its operational impact.
