Did you know that 20% of a new building’s costs are typically due to construction, whereas 80% are due to maintenance and operation throughout its lifespan?
With this in mind, it’s imperative to consider and implement smart choices in the design phase to significantly reduce ongoing annual maintenance costs. SFG20 Resource Modeller offers users the ability to create indicative cost scenarios during design and before construction begins, allowing for analysis of projected maintenance costs, asset requirements, resource requirements and planning.
Access to such an invaluable tool to estimate costs this early on allows you to inform potential solutions during design stages while also providing tender estimates and benchmarks.
It’s important to mention that SFG20 Resource Modeller can also be used to provide indicative costs of maintenance for legacy estates and as a valuable budget planning and justification tool.
Never before have facility management experts been able to project maintenance costs at such an early stage in the building design phase and with such ease. Whether you’re looking to reduce maintenance costs for a new or current site or simply want to increase the awareness of budget requirements/vulnerabilities — SFG20 Resource Modeller is the industry standard.
As we mentioned, maintenance covers a large percentage of a building’s total cost during its lifespan. Therefore, finding ways to reduce maintenance costs can have a huge impact on the efficiency, productivity and cost-effectiveness of current and future operations. Poor budget management or simply a lack of information regarding maintenance costs can have a severe impact on the financial standing of an organisation.
SFG20 Resource Modeller is an essential tool for facility management, as it allows for more accurate estimates regarding maintenance costs and labour requirements. Of course, this is hugely beneficial for facility managers, but also stakeholders. It is important to be able to demonstrate that cost estimates are robust and have the appropriate data to back them up. With Resource Modeller, you have that and much more.
SFG20 Resource Modeller can offer users the insight and understanding of maintenance requirements from an asset basis during the initial design phase. This not only informs future decisions regarding maintenance but also provides the information required to identify and consider potential solutions. Understanding more at an early stage allows for more effective use of budgets while reducing maintenance costs.
With SFG20 Resource Modeller, our customers can produce indicative annualised maintenance cost reports, establish resource requirements and quantify planned preventative maintenance by criticality. With insight and actionable data at your disposal, it’s a much easier task to seek out and implement alternative solutions to better suit your requirements and budget constraints.
''Clean Growth'' has been identified as one of four strategic imperatives by the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy — with the goal of halving energy use in new buildings by 2030.
Heating and powering buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy use in the UK - meaning that if we are able to make buildings more energy efficient by embracing and effectively implementing technology — there's a lot of energy and money to be saved. Of course, this means reducing energy bills, the demand for energy, and boosting economic growth. All while meeting carbon reduction targets.
Environmental awareness and an active effort to reduce energy consumption play a key role in reducing maintenance costs. As everyone strives to ensure buildings are more efficient and encourage longevity, maintenance solutions need to ensure assets operate efficiently through effective and applied maintenance interventions.
"Resource Modeller has been aligned to the RICS’s new rules of measurement (NRM3), the industry accepted standard method of labour loading and costing of planned maintenance."

SFG20 Resource Modeller features an intuitive and straightforward interface. Never before has it been quicker and simpler to estimate maintenance costs or identify labour requirements.
Produce quantified annual maintenance costs to aid tendering and benchmarking activities, as well as providing a valuable tool for budget planning and justification.
Adopt a standardised approach to maintenance with a central hub for maintenance schedules and checklists. Save effort on day-to-day management and develop a more in-depth view of annual maintenance costs.
Our API solution lets users connect SFG20 directly to their operation software. Integration is quick and easy, and you have peace of mind knowing data errors associated with manual intervention are removed.
SFG20 Resource Modeller is fully customisable to help you optimise maintenance and resource requirements against affordability. Achieve this with the ability to provide annualised indicative costs and times broken down by legal compliance.
SFG20 Resource Modeller makes pulling together and analysing maintenance costs a simple and quick task. This allows you to focus your time on identifying options for reducing maintenance costs across your estate.
Including region and gross internal floor area (GIFA).
Select schedules based on the assets at a location.
Amend task frequencies and out-of-hours rates as required.
Review and update rates against skillsets for standard time and region if needed.
This is an annualised maintenance cost plan. Adjust variables by amending default percentages.
