In facilities maintenance (FM), PPM means pre-scheduling maintenance tasks to avoid potential issues while your building and assets are fully operational. PPM is a planned, strategic approach to hard FM and is at the heart of everything we do at Sherwoods.

Avoiding the conventional “fix-it-when-it’s-broken” mindset, scheduling regular inspections, servicing, and repairs ensures your facility’s critical systems and equipment operate at peak efficiency, minimising downtime, reducing energy consumption, and lowering the risk of unexpected disruptions. Every Sherwoods PPM service contract offers you the following:

  • Bespoke PPM schedules for HVAC systems, electrical components, plumbing, heating and more
  • Cost-effective maintenance that helps extend the lifespan of equipment and reduce long-term expenses
  • Customisable PPM plans based on the needs and specifications of your building or assets
