Sodexo earns top FM certification in China

Patrick Connolly, Sodexo CEO Schools and Universities Worldwide, said: “This international certification, the first for Sodexo’s Schools segment, recognizes our expertise in advanced integrated facilities management. Over the past 20 years, Sodexo has developed strong capabilities in hard facilities management in different sectors, for example corporations where we are a recognized provider. Now we can bring this high degree of technical expertise to clients in Schools and Universities around the world.

Since 2006, Sodexo has been providing ISB with a range of quality of life services to bring well-being, health, safety and comfort to the school’s 2,500 students and staff. ISB is leveraging the company’s expertise to guarantee the long-term maintenance of its new state-of-the-art Heating, Ventilation and Air Condition (HVAC) system that comprises sophisticated heat recovery systems to maintain an ambient temperature throughout the campus, as well as all water supply systems. To run these complex systems to the highest standard, Sodexo employs its advanced Asset Management Framework (AMF), a complete life-cycle analysis tool developed for industrial and medical environments, which is deployed as a global offer as Asset Management Services (AMS). Central to the Asset Management Services is Maximo, a computerized maintenance management system produced by IBM and modified to be specific to Sodexo’s Asset Management Framework.

To complete the external audit process for ISO 55001 certification, Sodexo leveraged the benefits of its reorganization around global client segments, notably its cross-segment Service Operations division. Dedicated teams were mobilized from an internal pool of 5,000 experts in areas such as logistics, energy management, technical maintenance, health and safety, and engineering.
