SFG30 is the essential tool for facilities managers, defining best practice for shutdown procedures and reopening and reoccupying of the building.
With thousands of people now working from home or prevented from travelling, many commercial buildings are moving into shutdown mode. This has huge implications for building services equipment and decisions that would normally have been planned over many months must now be taken within days.
Owners, landlords and tenants will still need to maintain their buildings for security purposes; to achieve statutory compliance, and to protect the fabric and critical systems as well as satisfying any insurance implications.
"SFG20 helps us provide clarity, become more efficient, reduce wastage and increased confidence from a clients perspective. We have been able to standardise our tasks across the business and across multiple service areas to prevent differences in service delivery and compliant risks."

If you are already an SFG20 member you can buy the new SFG30 from the list of specialist schedules in your account.
SFG30 takes users through a step-by-step process for maintaining critical services during this low occupancy period ready for rapid and full reactivation when business returns to normal.
This includes key elements such as keeping water systems safe and healthy (in line with the Health & Safety Executive’s L8 rules for legionella control); both active and passive fire protection systems; safe handling of refrigerant gases; electrical and gas service safety checks and ventilation hygiene. It also explains how to maintain security systems and lifts if they are still in service etc.
With SFG30 you can control the risk of reopening and recouping a building which has been vacant for an extended period of time.
The essential facilities maintenance guides and checklist will help facility managers ensure the safety of both staff and the public when reentering a building.
