Video: Changing weather and managing FM operations
In our CW infocus series Nikhil Pereira presents a short report on the dynamic weather conditions and how they affect FM operations
Dusty and hazy weather conditions continue to make their presence felt in the UAE.
And adverse weather conditions have forced facilities management (FM) companies to rethink operations with one eye firmly on the SLAs and contractual agreements.
Data is also playing its part in helping FM companies predict weather conditions. And by monitoring ‘degree days’ – a term used to measure the amount of cooling required to achieve a set temperature – FM companies such as Emrill were able to justify higher cooling and energy usage in 2017 as compared to 2016.
