Working with
Knight FM

In Facilities Management, one size does not fit all. We understand that all businesses operate in a unique way with their own considerations in relation to quality, quantity and costs, even if they are in the same industry. That’s why we work closely with our clients to understand their individual requirements to devise a strategy that adds values and supports the core business by effectively and efficiently managing outcomes. We ensure it is aligned with their business vision, as well as statutory and regulatory requirements, by taking into consideration the following:

  • Management structure and corporate culture
  • Core business strategy
  • Region, location and other environmental factors
  • Services critical to core business
  • Internal capability and skills
  • Availability and expertise of suppliers
  • Risks associated with the above

Strategic FM Deployment

We break down our client’s overall business goals into measurable objectives to deliver tangible value. Our collaborative approach combined with our decades of experience across critical industries allow us to tailor a truly bespoke approach, with agility to meet your evolving needs.

High Performance Teams

The right systems, the right attitude, the right mindset and the right competencies all coming together. We combine the talents and expertise of our experienced personnel with the integration of our ISO accredited management systems to deliver the highest quality services.

Ongoing Process Improvement

Strategies and processes are consistently reviewed and improved to better meet our client’s changing needs. We are proud to be the only facilities management provider to achieve company-wide certification in ISO 41001:2018 facilities management and ISO 55001:2014 asset management.

Our History

Incorporated in Delaware, USA, in 1989, Knight Facilities Management has grown to become a global provider of facilities support services. With our five thousand employees across 13 countries, we have created a family of companies and provide a wide range of facilities management services.

As a subsidiary of the Knight Organisation, formerly Lester B. Knight & Associates Inc. – a world leader of the planning and development of technically advanced facilities; Knight FM was founded to fill the growing need for professional facilities management services.

Importantly, as a privately-owned independent company we are not aligned to or owned by a real estate firm or an external industry provider where facilities management is merely a by-product of a core service such as property sales or leasing.

Despite a global presence, Knight FM delivers projects with local area knowledge.
