Facilities Management Project Case Study

Facilities Management Project Case Study

iSpi Trade has a broad customer base, supplying high-quality Sign Trade supplies to Signage Installers, Electricians and Estate Agents. But we also work with Facilities Management and Property Managers. 

What comes to mind when you think of Facilities Management? Maintenance, repairs, commercial, industrial and office cleaning are probably the first things, and you would be correct. But, there is so much more involved in Facilities Management (FM) - probably services you may not associate with the role of an FM.

Like the world of sign fixings and retail displays, the Facilities Manager role is constantly expanding and evolving to meet customer demand. For our client, FM company, Factek, this has unquestionably been the case. Established in 2014, the company has grown from strength to strength, expanding year on year by providing a wide range of expertise and services to their client base.

Factek takes pride in its customer portfolio and providing the best quality service available for the FM industry. From a client's perspective, they seek to offer the complete turnkey solution to meet their needs while being socially responsible towards the environment and looking after staff wellbeing.

With a broad customer base, Factek works with Planning Consultants, Aviation Logistics and Cargo Handling, Transportation Software, Estate Agents and support other Facilities Management companies.

Providing Top Quality Facilities Management to Estate and Letting Agents

The main focus for Factek over recent years has been maintenance and refurbishment services to their estate agency clients. Established and regulated fit-out guidelines ensure each branch conforms with brand guidelines, providing uniformity across every Office.

Factek always incorporates window display installations as part of each refurbishment or brand update project for estate and letting agent customers. Estate Agents have long recognised the value LED Window Displays offer passersby, especially after dark.

Even with the internet age, high street offices are crucial to estate and letting agents. Whether it is passing trade or a planned visit, the shop window really is a reflection of your business.  

LED Window Display Upgrade For Leaders Estate Agents Brand

iSpi Trade received a call from Factek, who had been tasked with upgrading the window displays for two of Leaders offices in Burgess Hill, West Sussex and Forest Hill in South London. Our specialist LED team discussed the specification for the shopfront and suggested the best configuration to maximise the window space.

All our LED Window Display Kits come complete with floor to ceiling connectors, wiring and power supply, making them easily installed by an electrician. Both offices had slightly different combinations of two and three double-sided LED panels per set, in landscape or portrait, to suit the window size. We supplied some LED Window Pocket sets in A3 landscape to provide larger panels for featured properties, and these make a nice variation alongside the A4 panels.

They all have one thing in common - heritage, local know-how and community at their heart. 

Factek works in partnership nationwide across the Leaders Roman portfolio, providing maintenance services and facilities management in addition to office refits and upgrades.

"Factek strives to be the best and provide a top-quality turnkey facilities management service; this is why we always work with iSpi Trade for any signage fittings and LED Window Displays. Their quality products at trade prices and professional service give us confidence when installing them, which reflects on us when the estate agent comments on the excellent quality displays".
