Surbana Jurong Launches Next Generation Digital Facility and Asset Management Solution
Singapore, 1 December 2020 – Surbana Jurong, a global multidisciplinary urban, infrastructure and managed services consulting firm, has developed the next generation Digital Facility and Asset Management solution to enhance the work process and operational efficiency of buildings. Named OMNI, the innovative digital platform will raise the competencies and standards of the facilities management industry, keeping pace with rapid technological advancements in the built environment.
The innovation of OMNI is aligned with the national thrust to leverage technology and uplift the facilities management industry. The industry has traditionally been known to be slower in its adoption of digital solutions within the built environment sector. As part of its efforts to harness technology, SMM Pte Ltd, the facilities management arm of Surbana Jurong Group, has created an advanced Facility and Asset Management service offering.
Dubbed “OMNI”, this Digital Facility and Asset Management platform solution integrates both Building Information Management (BIM) and SMART Facilities Management (SMART FM) technologies, thereby enhancing the full life-cycle of the facility and asset management. OMNI collects both the building information and dynamic data generated from the Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors for big data analytics. This allows the building operators to optimise and develop a more efficient work strategy for corrective and preventive maintenance. Building operators can also access accurate, real-time information anytime.
The platform has a set of modules to support the key functions of facilities management, including space management, asset management, maintenance management, reporting and analysis, and mobile application for users on the go. It provides performance metrics and planning tools for users to efficiently manage the assets and facility operations. The platform is also seamlessly integrated with intuitive dashboards, instant messaging, faulty system tracking and real-time data analysis.
Use of OMNI at ALICE@Mediapolis
To further drive smart building management, Boustead Projects Limited, a leading specialist in smart eco-sustainable real estate solutions, started the initial deployment of OMNI at the Boustead Development Partnership’s ALICE@Mediapolis business park development in July 2020. As a pilot project, the innovative solution was used for space management, asset management, maintenance management, reporting and analysis. Based on ongoing beta testing and data collected to-date, OMNI may be able to achieve an improvement of more than 30 percent in overall work productivity, with at least a 50 percent increase in building information access and a reduction in manpower requirements through accomplishing more efficient processes for the work required. The official commissioning of the platform will commence in December 2020

Mr Thomas Chu, Managing Director of Boustead Projects Limited said: “ALICE@Mediapolis broke new ground in how BIM, digitalisation and cloud-based technology were extensively used to collaborate and integrate stakeholders’ inputs at every stage of the development, as well as in its incorporation of smart building technologies to enhance the user experience for tenants, visitors and the landlord. OMNI’s integration of BIM with Smart FM technologies makes the platform a natural fit with the profile of ALICE@Mediapolis as Singapore’s first truly-smart business park development, and this deployment is also in line with our position as a market-leading developer and design-and-build partner, with a progressive approach in adopting game-changing, industry-transforming technologies.”
Mr Wong Heang Fine, Group Chief Executive Officer of Surbana Jurong Group said, “As a leading consultancy in the built environment, Surbana Jurong has adopted digital technology as a way of working for every project and to drive better outcomes for our clients. Being the first consulting firm in Asia to be awarded the ISO 19650 accreditation is a testament to our compliance with the highest BIM modelling standards in projects. The integration of BIM and Smart FM into facilities management is a technological breakthrough for Surbana Jurong and it underscores our commitment to transform the facilities management industry and ensure that buildings stay sustainable and liveable.”
