Daikin, a Japanese multinational specializing in air conditioning and cooling systems, needed a relocation coordinator for an internal relocation on the Ostend site. It soon became clear that the scope was much broader. The relocation coordinator also had to coordinate the planned renovation projects.
Martijn Loosvelt, representative from Freestone, became a member of the facility team at Daikin. The goal was clear: the existing office environment had to be renewed, but the Daikin employees were not allowed to be bothered by this in any way. That is why the employees were first relocated to a modular building, after which the original office environment could be renovated.
Martijn's duties are very varied. In modular construction, he was the first point of contact for client, architect and contractors. In this respect, he was responisble for the planning, united all parties when necessary, followed-up the construction and informed the client.
He was also responsible for the complete "facility design" of the units. This includes network clocks, coffee facilities, waste management, network, electricity facilities, evacuation plans and evacuation facilities.
After the final move, the Facility Management of the modular construction was transferred to the facility helpdesk. This helpdesk can only function through a correct as-built plan, which Martijn could deliver without any problems.
Only then did the actual renovation work begin. During the renovation project, Martijn updated management every two weeks. They were informed of the budgetary and planned evolution. In addition, he updated Autocad plans on a daily basis, something that came in handy with his Autocad skills.
Because the process went so smoothly, Daikin decided to renovate more departments and so Martijn's assignment was extended.
