Data-rich FM cost benchmarking services enabling robust comparison

Our extensive experience of working on both client-side procurement projects and FM contractor-side tender opportunities means that Thomson FM holds a significant volume of valuable FM cost data, across all sectors, buildings types and services.
We also have specific formal benchmarking experience for a number of PFI contracts, having delivered the five-yearly benchmarking obligation on behalf of FM contractors. We also have experience of using our cost database to support the identification of areas of FM service delivery where efficiencies should be achievable based on current service costs. Our cost database combined with our analytical expertise enables us to clearly identify how specific service
costs / prices for particular projects compare to a wide range of similar projects for which we hold anonymised data. Our bidding and procurement expertise provides further opportunities for us to support FM contractors to ensure that their pricing is robust and competitive and also to support end-clients to identify where savings could be realistically targeted without detriment to service delivery quality.
