LitmusFM was created for our clients who have multiple facilities management (FM) services.

Our FM consultants are leading industry experts and practitioners who work alongside you to deliver outstanding FM solutions on behalf of your organisation.

Our aim is to reduce wasteful processes and inefficiencies in service design, construction, asset management, maintenance and replacement which will save money and deliver real value.

We realise there is huge potential within any organisation to improve operational FM performance.  We unlock that potential using our suite of services, audits and inspections supported by over 30 years of FM experience.
