Capitec are now supporting Higher Education (HE) Estates with compliance management

Many of the exemplar approaches and products we have developed over the last decade for managing statutory and mandatory compliance (Inc. industry best practice) for large/complex hospital sites, have a direct application for larger HE estates assets. HE estates can often have a very similar scale and compliance burden to that of an acute hospital estate (including but not limited to LEV systems, Laboratories, complex HV/LV infrastructure, MTHW/Steam systems, asbestos legacy, confined spaces, fire/life safety systems etc). We have now supported a major Russell Group institution with a range of compliance-related initiatives.

We initially undertook a Due Diligence Compliance Review (DDCR) to provide the estates senior management team with a ‘gap’ assessment of current Hard FM services offering. This has now been used to inform service development and to inform a suite of key compliance Standard Operating Procedures (SoP) that set out how the department is to manage a all major (estates) compliance areas – that will now form the basis of a new Safety Health and Environment (SHE) Quality management system.
