Don’t Forget to Include Construction Projects in Your Annual Budget

Building your budget for 2021? Need construction done now? Since your rental property is a source of income, it is important to concentrate on the right projects to help business as well as quick project completion by a team you can trust. Here at Building Maintenance Management, in addition to building maintenance, we also offer a variety of construction projects to keep local businesses not only up and running but competitive as well.

As you know, there is a lot that goes into budgeting each year and one thing that should never be overlooked is maintenance and construction costs. From routine maintenance to emergency repairs to renovations, each deserves a spot on your yearly budget. 

One of the most important elements to not only keeping your current tenants but drawing new ones is renovation. First impressions are everything in this competitive market and with old outdated cabinetry, flooring or walls; it can be difficult to attract new tenants. An empty unit is a loss of revenue and this can become especially true with older or outdated buildings. With new housing and business complexes popping up constantly, multi housing renovations can give your building a more competitive edge in the market.

We can offer the construction projects you need in order to bring your building up to speed. We do apartment remodels, commercial space buildouts and so much more! Here are some of the turnover and construction services we provide:

construction projects
  • Painting
  • Deck construction or repair
  • Flooring replacement
  • Basic repairs including plumbing electrical, carpentry, etc.
  • New doors
  • New light fixtures
  • Bathroom updates including cabinets, countertops, sink, shower, toilet, tub
  • Kitchen updates including cabinets, countertops, backsplash, hardware, appliances
  • And more

We can even help update your units on a case-by-case basis. When one unit becomes empty, our team can step in to get it ready to rent again. This may be as simple as providing a thorough cleaning or as extensive as adding new flooring and appliances.

So don’t forget to include important construction projects in next year’s budget! We are available on a contract basis or you can call us when you have major updates that need to be done. We want to make your job easier and be your one stop shop for maintenance and construction. To learn more about the construction projects we offer, don’t hesitate to call Building Maintenance Management at 763-541-4886 or contact us.

Emergency Maintenance During COVID-19

These days many property managers and landlords are wondering what their responsibilities are when it comes to maintenance and especially emergency maintenance during COVID-19. When everything right now requires extensive planning, what does one do in an emergency? Tenants will be looking to you for information on how to submit maintenance requests, how common areas are being managed and cleaned and what to do in the event their A/C stops working, their electric goes out or a pipe bursts in their unit. Here at Building Maintenance Management, we offer emergency maintenance for Minnetonka and the surrounding areas and are here to tell you more about this essential service.

With our after hours emergency maintenance service, property managers will have a maintenance person they can rely on 24/7/365. They can still have their own in-house maintenance staff to handle ordinary tasks but they can now relax knowing if an emergency comes up, our team can handle it.

How it works: We have a call center where any after hours maintenance calls will come. We will then send a notice to all of our maintenance technicians and whoever is closest will respond to the call. This provides a quick response time. We will have our employees on different shifts so all hours of every day will be covered.

Our staff will communicate with the in-house maintenance crew so they will know the details of any emergency call, what was done and if there’s any follow up work they need to handle. Basically, our crew is just an extension of each property’s maintenance staff. 

With emergency maintenance from BMM you won’t have to worry about calling a third party you’re unfamiliar with. We are the emergency maintenance company area businesses trust and we are here to help. BMM has taken the initiative to ensure our technicians are identified as “essential” workers during these unprecedented and unpredictable times. So, whether it is routine building check-ups or 24/7 standby emergency coverage, your commercial building maintenance can continue to be covered by BMM.

During this time, it is important to continue to maintain the essential systems in your building to ensure you’re not wasting energy in empty areas and, as a result, inflating your utility bills. It can also be hard to keep up with your building management and emergency maintenance if staff has been sent home to work remotely. That’s where we come in; we offer comprehensive maintenance including emergency maintenance for even your after-hours needs. With this service, property managers can have peace of mind knowing any issue will be taken care of right away by an experienced professional even in these uncertain times.

Contract Maintenance From One, Solid Team

As a property owner or manager, you have an obligation to maintain the well-being and safety of your facilities. But in these uncertain times of COVID-19, how do you ensure safety while maintaining a clean environment? One of the best ways to do so is by limiting the number of people and contractors that enter your building on a daily basis. With contract maintenance by a single company you can ensure long-term, consistent work. You’ll know who to call, and you’ll know they’ll be there. As the trusted name in contract maintenance for Roseville and the surrounding areas, we would like to cover some of the ways we can handle the job.

Did you have a different person to help you with every aspect of your building’s maintenance? Here are just some of the traditional handyman jobs we cover:

  • Professional Cleaner: There are some aspects of your building that need to be cleaned professionally, such as air ducts and equipment.
  • Installer: When you get a new or updated piece of equipment, you’ll need it installed by someone. You’ll want to know it’s getting done right, so the new equipment works.
  • Landscaper: Keeping up the landscaping is an all year round endeavor. It’s something that you as a business owner, should not have to maintain.
  • Concrete Installer: If you need new sidewalks, walkways or driveway, you may be looking at concrete. Concrete work is something that can be done quickly and efficiently.
  • Equipment Inspector: Having equipment inspected is something that is necessary. You want to make sure that your equipment is operating at maximum efficiency.
  • Plumber: Problems with sinks, toilets and drains are not uncommon in buildings. You may need, from time to time, a team to look at plumbing issues and make repairs.
  • Painter: Painting can be a large undertaking in a big building. When the time comes for a fresh coat of paint, you’ll want an experienced team.
  • Electrician: Electrical problems usually require the skill of a professional to handle. While the lack of electricity may pose a problem it’s best to wait for an expert.
  • And more.

Instead of having a different person for everything, consolidate by choosing Building Maintenance Management. 

When an issues arises, we are here for you. BMM has taken the initiative to get their technicians identified as “essential” workers during these unprecedented times.

BMM Plans to be a Glimmer of Hope During These Tough Times: COVID-19 Response

UPDATE: Executive Order 20-20 Identifies BMM As An Essential Business

Governor Tim Walz issued Executive Order 20-20 Wednesday afternoon which orders Minnesotans to “stay at home or in their place of residence.” This order will be in effect starting Friday, March 27, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. through Sunday, May 3, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. BMM is a company that has been identified as an essential business within Executive Order 20-20. You will find this on page 3, paragraph 5, subparagraph D. It states that supplies and services needed to maintain the “operation of homes, residences, and businesses” will be exempted from Executive Order 20-20.

Between emails and news articles, there is a plethora of information surrounding this pandemic and the common theme seems to be “fear.” We would like to take this time to be the exception to that rule by informing you how BMM plans to be a beacon of hope during these unprecedented times. Below you will read about BMM’s plan to help you protect your assets; procedures that will better protect your tenants, staff, and our technicians; how BMM can help with your action plan; and how BMM can help when the dust settles.

Protecting Your Assets With BMM

As a property owner or manager, you still have an obligation to maintain the well-being and safety of your facilities. However, how can you do that on top of the day-to-day management, answering thousands of questions from both tenants and employees, and taking care of yourself? That being said, BMM has taken the initiative to get their technicians identified as “essential” workers during these unprecedented times. So, whether it is routine building check-ups (i.e. trash pick-up, boiler checks, other equipment checks, chiller start-ups, etc.), or 24/7 standby emergency coverage your facility maintenance can continue to be covered in BMM’s hands. Even in a “shelter in place” directive, BMM will continue to be available to cover your maintenance needs, in a safe and controlled manner, by carefully following the procedures listed below.   

BMM’s Procedures To Keep Everyone Safe

BMM has seriously and diligently planned the procedures below to keep everyone safe. BMM’s number one concern is to keep your tenants, staff, and our technicians healthy and limit exposure to Covid-19. BMM plans to ensure safety of all individuals by following directives from the CDC (i.e. wash hands, social distancing, covering coughs and sneezes, staying home when sick, etc.). However, BMM plans to take it a few steps further with the following procedures being added to what the CDC is recommending:

In the event that a BMM technician needs to enter an occupied unit and the tenant DOES NOT have symptoms of Covid-19:

  • BMM’s technician will proceed to enter with a fresh pair of gloves which will be disposed of immediately after leaving the unit.
  • Face protection will be worn by BMM’s technician the entire time they are in the unit.
  • The tenant will be asked to stay in a different room during the duration of the service call.
  • BMM’s technician will wash his/her hands immediately before and after the service call.

In the event that a BMM technician needs to enter an occupied unit and the tenant DOES have symptoms of Covid-19

  • BMM’s technician will proceed to enter with the following fresh items and dispose of the items, in a trash bag, immediately after leaving the unit: Tyvek suit, respirator, gloves, goggles.
  • The tenant will be asked to stay in a different room during the duration of the service call.
  • BMM’s technician will wash his/her hands immediately before and after the service call.

Again, these precautions are in addition to the most current directive from the CDC. If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding these procedures, please call our office at (763) 541-4886.

Involve BMM In Your Action Plan

To get through these tough times, BMM thinks it will take a community effort in sharing strategies and collaborating with one another. For this reason, BMM would like to be a part of any action plan meetings you may be having. We feel that the earlier and more involved we can be, the better we can serve you. BMM has already been collaborating with other companies using video conferencing software and can bring that knowledge to the table when we meet with you. These consultations will be completely free of charge, so please pick up the phone and reach out to our office at (763) 541-4886 or book a time to speak with BMM’s team of facility maintenance experts.

BMM Is Here When The Dust Settles

Not only is it important to have a plan during all this, but also after we reach the end of it. With resources only being utilized on emergency or essential type tasks; there will be a surplus of work to do when the dust settles. So, to get things back to a normal routine as soon as possible, call BMM at (763) 541-4886 or contact us.
