The co-operation between Concerted Solutions and Granlund combines the expertise of the respective companies with the aim of managing operations and maintenance of buildings more efficiently throughout their operational lifecycles.
With the partnering of Concerted Solutions and Granlund Manager, both the facilities management solutions offered by Granlund Manager and the innovative digital engineering expertise of Concerted Solutions, are utilized in finding new synergies and more efficient solutions for the client, whether constructing new buildings or looking to improve the maintenance of the existing ones.
Leading trend in digitalization: data modelling
The trend of digitalization has been steadily gaining pace in the past five years. Currently booming are digitalization needs such as data modeling, with the Middle East being on the cutting edge of development. For instance in Dubai, the building owners are starting to embrace BIM in the entire lifecycle of facilities. This is spurred on by the new building regulations requiring modeling in all new construction projects over 20 stories high.
“The fast development of digitalization offers exiting possibilities also in the area of facilities management. We are very happy to be partnering with Concerted Solutions and being able to combine our expertise with their in-depth, specialist knowledge in digital engineering and the market dynamics in the Middle East. This enables the development of new synergies and helps to maximize client satisfaction,” says Jyrki Pikkarainen, General Manager of Granlund Middle East.

Enhancing facilities management with visualization
Concerted Solutions offers solutions based on advanced information technology. One of their specialities is laser scanning existing buildings to create accurate BIM models. When the As-Built Modeling is combined with building analytics in Granlund Manager, service requests can be located and visualized accurately on the created 3D-models. Similarly, the asset data collected during the construction period can be utilized in effective BIM implementation for facilities management processes.
“With the adoption of virtual design and construction in the region, the facilities teams are also calling for innovative solutions in the building maintenance and facilities management areas. Through our partnership with Granlund, we can help our clients leverage their construction BIM models in facilities management through seamless integration of the BIM data into Granlund Manager,” says Muhammad Jabakhanji, the Director of Operations for Concerted Solutions.
One of the benefits of the partnership is the gained bilateral support for the integration of BIM-to-FM properties in the BIM-model from the viewpoint of the construction and the maintenance processes.
“Our partnership is a very natural one that will be beneficial to the maintenance personnel and the end users by providing timely and accurate information in all stages of the operational lifecycle. For instance, being able to visualize and monitor temperatures in virtual FM environment will make it easy and efficient to manage them,” sums up Pikkarainen.
