Space management for administration
Space management for administration, HTH service, is a facility management service provided by Senate Properties to its government administration clients.
The HTH information service helps your organisation to manage and optimise the use and costs of your facilities.
HTH is a facility management tool
Space management for administration is a joint facility management tool for the government community. It has an up-to-date information platform for directing, planning and making decisions about facility management. The HTH service increases the transparency of property-related usage, energy and cost information. The information provided by the HTH service is also used in the preparation of joint government guidelines and instructions.
The role of Senate Properties is to serve as the government’s centralised expert organisation in facility management. The role means that we seek solutions that benefit both the customer and the government community. We want to promote the development of good working environments while making sure that the space solutions are economically effective. We want to offer solutions that improve effectiveness in a controlled manner by working closely together with our customers.
Goal: excellent working environment in a financially sound manner
Government policies aimed at cutting public spending along with structural changes increase the need to streamline operations and allocate savings in a way that poses no risks to core operations. In a situation like this, facilities are at the top of the list of expenses to cut. However, facilities are a resource, and trying to achieve savings without considering their impact on the core operations will only lead to poor results. That being said, facilities have savings potential, and, if utilised carefully, it will not impair the working conditions but even improve them.
Better working environments through facilities that support mobile working
The government administration is no stranger to new ways of working. Activity-based environments, hot desking, mobile working and shared facilities set new requirements for offices and other working environments. When these are taken into consideration when planning the facilities, the occupancy rate goes up. The end result is an office with fewer square metres and better functionality.
Environmental perspective requires more effective facilities
The Finnish government is committed to achieving the EU’s energy efficiency targets. Energy consumption is the biggest source of greenhouse emissions in facilities and it has the largest impact on the size of the facilities’ carbon footprint. Cutting the number and square footage of facilities directly reduces energy consumption and the impact on the environment. This effect can be seen especially clearly in the calculations per single employee.
