What our clients say

Savills WA

Savills WA have utilised HFM Asset Management to provide engineering consulting services for the past 10 years.

 

Their knowledge and combined experience in; asset management, facility management, energy & water efficiency and engineering has helped Savills WA manage their buildings more effectively and ultimately provide value back to the owners.

 

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend HFM Asset Management to other customers.

Primewest
ADAM O’DONOGHUE
Head of Asset Management

“Primewest has utilised the services of HFM over the past years to ensure NABERS and CBD compliance across our portfolio; review, assess and provide advice on plant lifecycle management; tender and negotiate our energy and water contracts, and provide valuable ongoing technical support in relation to our assets.

HFM were instrumental in coordinating the works at one of our West Perth assets which improved the NABERS Rating from 0 Stars to 5 Stars and also in maintaining that performance over a number of years, this dramatic rise in the NABERS rating along with the enormous reduction in electricity costs resulted in lower outgoings and greater tenant retention at the property.

More recently HFM has provided a vital role in the refurbishment of 1 Forrest Place, a heritage listed mixed-use property in the CBD. With HFM’s assistance, the building is targeting NABERS 4.5 Stars through mechanical, electrical and lighting design”

Hardie Finance Corporation
Scott Collinson
Property and Asset Manager

I have worked with Ian and the staff at HFM for at least the last 10 years. They remain my first port of call for matters related to all things energy including electricity procurement, NABERS ratings and advice and importantly lifecycle costing for commercial property assets.

In my last role, with the assistance and guidance of the HFM team, we were able to achieve the second 5.5 star NABERS Energy rated building in WA, without Greenpower. This was a significant achievement through a close collaboration between our staff and the HFM team.

I would be happy to recommend HFM as the leading contractor in their field.

Charter Hall
Property Manager

I have worked with HFM for the last 3 ½ years and have found their service exceptional over that time. We engaged HFM to monitor our buildings efficiency via their TMAR reporting and advise of any issues and potential improvements to enhance NABERS ratings and tenant satisfaction.
 
With the help of HFM we reached and maintained a 5 ½ star NABERS Energy Rating 130 Stirling Street following development through to the buildings sale in April 2014.
 
HFM continue to provide us the latest information on building efficiency initiatives and recommendations tailored specifically to our buildings during our quarterly Energy Management Plan meetings.

TSA Group
Manager Facilities Services

It hadn’t occurred to us to engage a building efficiency consultant, but a conversation about energy efficiency initiatives, while HFM were conducting a NABERS assessment for the landlord, lead to us engaging HFM to do exactly that.

This turned out to be one of the best things we have ever done and has started TSA down a path of significant savings on energy, environmental sustainability and an improved environment for our staff.

For us, what’s sets HFM apart, is their ability to convey their technical expertise into real-world solutions, where the benefits can be easily understood by both the business and the facilities team.

Venues Live
Dorian Hughes
Operations Manager

“HFM recently provided Electricity Procurement Services to the team at VenuesLive for Perth’s biggest stadium.

The high quality of service provided by HFM was not only aligned with our standards and requirements, but also the guidance HFM provided to our team throughout the process was clear, explaining complex concepts such as cost drivers of energy into easy-to-understand information for everyone involved.

HFM’s detailed examination of the contracted terms & conditions was key for the VenuesLive team to get an accurate understanding of the risks and obligations involved in energy supply contracts.”
