Reducing costs and increase business continuity in Critical Environments

In critical environments, business continuity is essential. The costs to your business and the damage to your reputation for business downtime can be exorbitant.

According to a survey of 1,000 Australian IT professionals by Wakefield Research, the average revenue loss during business-critical outages was $144,062.52 per hour for larger organisations. For smaller organisations (those with fewer than 20,000 employees), the figure was more than $2,000 per hour. Source

With such high-cost considerations, businesses with critical environments need to actively plan and manage their building services and construction to ensure business continuity and redundancy.

Here are some important things to consider for your building services and construction in a critical environment to reduce downtime and expenses:

1. Regular Maintenance:

Consistent service and maintenance are crucial to mitigate anticipated breakdowns or failures.

2. Emergency Response:

Partnering with a responsive emergency service provider is essential. Robert Mann, for example, boasts a commendable 90% success rate in resolving issues on the first attempt.

3. Thorough Construction Planning:

Meticulous scoping and planning are prerequisites for successful construction projects in critical environments; opt for a construction partner experienced in methodical project management, inhouse engineering and precise project delivery.
