About
Knight FM

The flexibility, reliability and expertise of Knight FM allow us to provide a holistic approach to integrated facilities management. Our highly innovative technology coupled with our expert team, create tailored full-lifecycle strategies for each client.

Company
Overview

Our expertise spans all stages of the asset and built-form lifecycle with an ongoing ability to deliver cumulative value. We leverage our diverse expertise to inform our innovation agency and continually enhance our offering.

At Knight FM, we are a privately-owned independent company. Most importantly, 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.

With a solid platform of global knowledge and strong desire to seek innovations, we are favourably positioned to lead the industry in best practice developments and create value-adding partnerships with our clients. With excellence at the core of everything we do, we strive to be the best facilities management services provider in Australia and New Zealand.

Corporate team at Knight FM

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.
