Facilities & Estate Management


The CDC owns and operates an extensive portfolio of Land, Buildings, Equipment and Bulk Infrastructure Facilities, assets which are utilised to deliver CDC’s corporate objectives of providing a preferred investment destination through its Facilities and Estate Management (FEM) Unit.


Generally, the FEM Unit is the sole provider of maintenance services for CDC facilities. Where CDC is the owner of land and building assets, the Facilities Management Section is responsible for:


a)        Acting as ‘building owner’ in respect to asset management and compliance with statutory and regulatory building requirements;

b)        The maintenance and repair of the, buildings, plant, equipment and services set out in various tenant lease agreements; and

c)        The procurement  and management of  service providers for provision of those services not done by the Facilities Department itself

d)        Period inspections and condition auditing of buildings occupied by tenants to ensure that they are maintaining them in accordance with the lease agreements

e)        Pre and Post Occupation Audits


The FEM Unit manages all assets which covers the following categories of maintenance:


a)        Preventive Planned Maintenance

b)        Statutory Maintenance

c)        Corrective/Reactive Maintenance

d)        Backlog Maintenance

e)        Condition Based Maintenance 

The FEM Unit operates software called Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) which captures all the attributes of the asset on the Asset Database and determine the Asset Hierarchy which helps when dispatching calls for maintenance. The system captures the asset name, description, manufacturer, age, maintenance intervals, etc and this becomes an important aspect in maximizing the value of the asset. The CMMS is backed up by Call Centre whereby Call Centre Agents tracks all calls for ad hoc maintenance and dispatches calls for Planned Maintenance whilst acting as a link between the CDC and tenants.
