The importance of Engineering, SESMT and Supply support

Rodrigo Costev • 5/21/2024

We understand that corporate engineering support in technical matters related to the management of technical requirements, supplies and Occupational Safety is extremely important for the quality of operational processes and ensures that the customer meets regulatory requirements, as well as the continuity of your business.

Engineering technical support
Corporate engineering technical support is related to providing technical knowledge to your employees, such as:
• Technical capacity building training
• Provision of technical reports
• Execution of technical inspections
• Process audits and application of satisfaction surveys / NPS, seeking continuous improvement of our processes, as well as meeting contractual demands, exceeding expectations and enhancing customer business

The corporate supply area works with qualified suppliers who have quality services and products that guarantee acceptable performance above the market average, cost reduction and, consequently, attract noticeable added value in the medium and short term for the customer.

SESMT - Specialized Service in Safety Engineering and Occupational Medicine
The support of SESMT (Specialized Service in Safety Engineering and Occupational Medicine) in our operations has several dimensions and seeks excellence in terms of executing services with respect and safety for professionals and customers.
With our technical team of experienced occupational health and safety professionals, we seek to generate the following actions:
1. Prevention of occupational accidents and illnesses: identify and evaluate risks in the work environment, contributing to the implementation of preventive measures that aim to avoid workplace accidents and occupational illnesses. This not only protects employees, but also prevents costs associated with accidents, such as sick leave, severance pay, and production interruptions.
2. Promotion of occupational health: generate actions to promote the health of workers, offering disease prevention programs, promotion of healthy habits and periodic medical monitoring. This results in healthier, satisfied and productive employees.

3. Legal compliance: act in accordance with legal obligations. The presence of qualified occupational health and safety professionals helps the organization comply with government regulations and avoid fines and sanctions.

4. Cost reduction: we invest in prevention through SESMT, which allows the client to reduce costs associated with work accidents, sick leave, workers' compensation and legal proceedings. Additionally, healthy employees tend to be more productive, which can increase efficiency and reduce operating costs in our contracts.

5. Improvement of the organizational climate: by demonstrating concern for the safety and health of employees, SESMT contributes to the creation of a safer, more reliable and valued work environment for employees. This can improve worker engagement and loyalty.

6. Competitiveness and company image: companies that invest in occupational health and safety tend to have a better reputation in the market, which can attract talent and customers. A positive image as a responsible employer can be an important competitive differentiator in a market increasingly aware of social and environmental issues.

SESMT plays a fundamental role in protecting and promoting the health and safety of workers, while contributing to legal compliance, cost reduction, improving the organizational climate and strengthening the company's image.

We have the necessary technical corporate support to guide and support FM operations and thus ensure proximity between the professionals allocated to the projects and the corporation, causing positive results with differentiated guidelines, standards and quality levels.

Property Management Edificio Barao de Maua

Built in 1960, the Barão de Mauá building is one of the architectural treasures of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer together with Sabino Barroso and Lúcio Costa, it went through different periods in the country's real estate and economic market and recently gained more technology and functionality, which further enhanced its charm.

Located in the central region, it has more than 23 thousand m² of built area and 20 corporate buildings, currently 100% occupied by the largest electricity company in Latin America and one of the largest in the world. Around 750 users pass through there per day.
After an important retrofit, completed in 2018, the Barão de Mauá Building re-emerges revamped in the Rio real estate market to continue writing its history in the heart of the city.

Learn a little about the work that the Cushman & Wakefield Property Management team has been carrying out in the condominium and understand how this successful relationship has been built long before the renovation.

2002 to 2017 – Property and Facilities Management
Even before the retrofit, Cushman & Wakefield already worked with Property Management in the common areas of the condominium and also provided Facilities Management services in the private areas.

2018 – Completion of retrofit
Between 2015 and 2016, the Barão de Maurá Building was vacated to carry out the retrofit. The work was completed in 2018, the property had its facilities completely modernized, which placed it among the best-rated corporate buildings in the city, with LEED Gold certification, which proves that the project complies with strict construction use standards, in addition to the Procel A seal, which attests to its energy efficiency. The iconic architectural design has had its original characteristics preserved.

At this point, Cushman & Wakefield then resumes condominium management work.

2019 – Reoccupation
In 2019, the Barão de Mauá building opened its doors to its new occupant, which would later become the largest electrical energy company in Latin America and one of the largest in the world, becoming a single-user building.

In addition to the common areas, the Cushman & Wakefield team dedicated to the operation provided full support to the occupant during the process of reoccupying the building, going through challenging moments when the COVID-19 pandemic devastated Brazil and the world.
With delays throughout the supply chain and a direct impact on service provision, a lot of resilience and expertise was required to deal with adversity.

Another important moment in relation to occupant support also required new efforts from the team. After being incorporated by another company, the occupying company goes through a relayout process that included new reforms.

2024 – Operational Excellence Award
Having overcome the challenges, today the team is reaping the rewards of the work carried out over all these years.

The quality of the service provided was recently recognized. The Barão de Mauá Building was highlighted in the operational excellence award, which annually recognizes Cushman & Wakefield's best operations in Property Management. Result of the combined efforts of all members.
“Today we find ourselves on a “cruise” in relation to the maturity of this operation. Having overcome the challenges, we managed to stabilize all aspects and continue working to always be more efficient”, reports Monica Mariani Portfolio Manager at Cushman & Wakefield.
