We are delighted to be celebrating the second anniversary of our Facilities Management department
It has been an exciting 24 months growing the division and expanding the team to meet the demands of secured projects across our three specialist sectors: High Quality Residential, Science & Higher Education, and Landmark & Heritage.
Our portfolio of serviced buildings has shown a steady increase due to the successful completion of our building projects, which allows us to smoothly transition from construction into facilities management (FM). Equally, we have secured several new FM contracts following recommendations from our professional consultant network which we are very grateful for.
Where are we currently working?
We are currently working in Chelsea, Mayfair, Belgravia, Bloomsbury and Buckinghamshire, servicing and maintaining extremely high-quality private homes. Following the completion of Walter Lilly’s flagship science project at the end of 2022 in White City, we were delighted to be awarded the FM contract for this state-of-the-art science research facility and have deployed a full-time service team on site.
The introduction of new systems
To ensure the optimum efficiency and effectiveness of our FM department, we recently introduced Joblogic, a leading provider of facilities management software that offers an advanced cloud-based centralised solution for asset register, client communication and job tracking.

“We started working with Walter Lilly in September 2022, when they took over our facilities management for our five-storey Georgian townhouse in London.
Since we have worked with them, the team have always been very professional and completely on the ball when any issues have come about. They ensure that the correct team are on site swiftly and have the contacts required to resolve all issues within a timely manner and without any hassle, which we require in our work environment. They also keep in contact with us to arrange our monthly visits at a time that is suitable for us. No job seems to be too big or too small for them!
I would have no hesitation recommending the Walter Lilly team for any facilities management service as my experience with them has been positive all the way through.”
