Skandia - Interim Management

Skandia, the investment bank, took advantage of Macro’s ability to quickly mobilise high-quality interim management support for its technical services requirements, looking after its portfolio of UK buildings.  

Our challenge was to effectively integrate with the existing combined team of in-house and external FM suppliers and ensure a seamless transition of technical business activities. While in place, Macro worked with Skandia’s head of FM services to review the existing management position being covered and contribute to a restructure of the role which would accommodate the new FM delivery model for the business. 

Our goal was to maintain business continuity during this period of major change. We improved service value in the procurement of new contracts, specifically M&E, catering, vending and fleet. We were also able to reassess and redesign the strategic shape of Skandia’s FM management, obtaining value and cost reductions along the way. 

On a more tactical level our day-to-day role involved the management of technical FM services; from building maintenance to cleaning, catering, fleet and security. Beyond this we brought our managerial experience to bear on leased properties, capital projects, budget control, managing KPIs, space planning and move management, tendering processes for new FM contracts and overall business planning.
