The pandemic has put building ventilation in the spotlight – particularly the quality and quantity of air it circulates. And now more than ever – since HVAC ventilation systems were first widely introduced – it’s crucial they are regularly and properly maintained to help ensure a clean and safe environment, as well as optimal performance and cost efficiency.
Cooling towers provide a cost-effective and energy-efficient operation of systems in need of cooling – i.e., heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) – and it’s crucial that they are strictly maintained to reduce the risk of system damage and health issues…
“Is the fire under control and is it going to spread to another part of the building?” These are two of the most important questions we ask the firies when we arrive at the scene of a fire in any of the buildings we manage.
At Building Management Australia (Bmaus), we’re proud of our unique, purpose-designed reporting system. It provides a myriad of benefits for strata managers and Owners Corporations.
We understand that NSW Health’s recent ‘blockdown’ announcement, whereby an entire apartment building can be locked down when a resident tests positive, may be causing concern for the residents of the many buildings we manage across Sydney.

Today’s Building Management Systems (BMS) play a vital role in helping Building Managers create and maintain more comfortable, healthy, safe, cost-efficient and ‘greener’ buildings.

Building Managers provide a variety of services that help create a more convenient, efficient and cost-effective building. Strata buildings that have numerous lots – residential, commercial, retail – have an increased amount of traffic and activities which require a professional building manager to oversee and mitigate.
Building Managers organise, control and delegate the strategic and operational management of a building. They are based on-site with a dedicated office from where they manage contractors and suppliers carrying out maintenance and upgrades and provide services such as security, cleaning, and property maintenance. Building Managers can issue keys, accept parcels and manage the adherence of the occupants to the registered by-laws.
Bmaus can assist the owners’ corporation with:
– The management of common property
– Controlling the use of common property by tradespersons and other non-residents
– The maintenance and repair of common property
– Duties such as concierge, security and cleaning
Building Managers usually manage strata buildings greater than 70 lots, however, they can manage smaller strata on a part-time basis at the Strata Committee’s discretion.
Building Managers are appointed by members of a Strata Committee. They are appointed at an AGM or EGM and are administered by the Strata Committee via a Strata Agent.
The Strata Committee of the owners corporation represents owners or owners’ nominees. It is responsible for the day-to-day running of the strata scheme and is elected at each annual general meeting (AGM). The owners corporation decides the number of strata committee members for the coming year at each AGM. An owners corporation may also employ a Strata Managing Agent and/or Building Manager to carry out some, or all, of the responsibilities of the strata committee.
We create a tailored quote by discussing your tenant’s requirements and by conducting an on-site scope of work to assess your building’s maintenance and management requirements such as security, cleaning, coordinating/overseeing repairs and renovations, provision of valet parking, concierge, and/or mail/parcel management, and facilities maintenance such as gardening and maintenance of amenities such as gyms and/or swimming pools.
Bmaus has managers who operate as full-time managers, part-time managers and, in some instances, a combination of remote and onsite managers. As with all our services, we tailor the manager’s hours to meet the needs of your building.
Bmaus employs several ‘floating’ / ‘relief’ Building Managers who are acquainted with your building and its operation and maintenance requirements. This ensures a continuity of quality service during times of leave.
