Facilities management services are split into two different types of services hard facilities management and soft facilities management services. In this article, we explain the difference between hard facilities management and soft facilities management services.
Here at B38 Group, we offer a comprehensive range of facilities management services. Our facilities services can be refined further into ‘hard facilities management’ and ‘soft facilities management’ sectors. But what is the difference between soft services and hard facilities services?
The range of services encompassed within facilities management is extensive and can be refined in to hard and soft services. Most organisations have a requirement for both types of services, but what is the difference between soft services and hard services?
Hard facilities management services relate to any tangible maintenance aspect of business property fabric. These are services which are often required by law, to ensure the safeguarding of employees and customers alike. The hard facilities management services sector is fast growing, with corporations both large and small across various industries are turning to professional property maintenance companies like B38 Group to assist them in navigating the regulatory environment and ensure long-term business continuity. Some examples of the hard services that B38 Group offer include:
Soft services, by contrast, relate to the non-technical fabric of the commercial property. Corporations are turning to facilities management companies to provide all aspects of corporate maintenance for the satisfaction of clients and employees alike. Some examples of soft services include:
The ultimate difference between soft services management and hard services lies in building fabric. Hard services are typically thought to be more ‘traditional’ forms of property maintenance and facilities management, whilst soft services management have been developed out of changing corporate needs, for example more complex security systems required in an increasingly perilous society. Both hard and soft services are needed to ensure optimal business functioning and client and employee satisfaction.
