Our contribution

Within Vopak, Ifmec has taken Facility Management to a higher level in both the Netherlands and Belgium.

Our consultant has improved the FMIS system in the Netherlands. Our consultant is an expert in IWMS and was therefore able to help Vopak to make optimal use of the system and the available data.

At Vopak Rotterdam, Ifmec was also able to take care of the day-to-day management of the caretakers and Service Desk by means of a Facility Coordinator. The operational and tactical contract management for soft and hard services was one of the responsibilities. The Coordinator was also able to achieve cost optimization within the Facility Services.

Vopak Belgium faced a different issue. Here, it was not so much the service that had to be optimised, but the question was to set up the service at the Facilities department. Facility Management was still in its infancy here, but precisely because of the experience and knowledge of Vopak Netherlands, our consultant was able to make great strides quickly.

The consultant also assisted Vopak Antwerp in coordinating various construction and housing projects. In the field of soft and hard services, Ifmec provided operational and tactical contract management for Vopak. In addition, the consultant has taken care of cost optimization. Ifmec has also coordinated moves in and out.
