Si Lankaâ€™s McLarens in maintenance JV with Singaporeâ€™s Peak Engineering
ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s McLarens Group has set up a joint venture with Peak Engineering & Consultancy (Pte) Ltd. of Singapore to offer buildings maintenance, security and medical services.
The joint venture, McPeak Lanka (Private) Limited; offers ‘Integrated Facilities Management Solutions’ to both private and government sector organisations to meet growing demand for professional maintenance services.
“With an ever-expanding skyline and more sophisticated vertical spaces, the need for high quality maintenance becomes a dire necessity,” said Trevor Reckerman, Director of McPeak Lanka.
“No more will ad-hoc patchwork remedies fit the scale of expensive and expansive property development whether it be public or private sector institutions.”
Services are offered to clients in commercial, industrial, retail or even in mixed development settings, a statement said.
“The company’s services broadly encompass the operation and maintenance of large scale buildings, dedicated mechanical and electrical engineering expertise, holistic housekeeping and janitorial services, maintenance of common amenities, security services and systems, and responsive medical and concierge support.”
McPeak Lanka will use the over two decades of local experience in property and hospitality management of the McLarens Group.
It will also use the effective management of residential, commercial, retail and industrial properties that is offered by Peak Engineering and Consultancy of Singapore.
The new company provides highly trained engineering, security and janitorial cadres backed by well experienced managerial staff.
“The McPeak team is capable of safe operation, monitoring, maintaining, servicing and retrofitting all electrical and mechanical systems within the built environment,” the statement said.
“Specialised IT tools and technologies, including cloud-based computer software and mobile apps, will be incorporated where necessary in order to increase management efficiency while reducing operational and manpower costs.”
Francis Chua, founder and managing director of Peak Consultancy, said the firm extends services to Sri Lanka as it is growing rapidly, evidenced by the fast development of infrastructure and modern facilities.
“We are already in Thailand and Myanmar and thus including Sri Lanka is a testimony of our growing portfolio across Asia, which is primed to be the next growth region geographically.”
