Fettes College implemented AssetWhere to improve health and safety planning, and facilities management on its 150-year-old, 90 acre campus.

Fettes College used AssetWhere to create site map of the entire campus layout, buildings and services to aid facilities management and safety. Accurate fire evacuation maps for all areas of its complex grounds were also created, improving the safety of visitors, staff and it’s boarding students. With full visibility of it’s buildings, rooms and hazards, the team can now plan more efficiently to maximise the use of it’s facilities.

“AssetWhere helped our daily planning by giving a clear overview of the facilities available for events, such as room sizes and capability within those rooms, and it has helped enormously to aid the planning process longer term by providing a quick, easy-to-access site map, detailed from the whole 90 acres, right down to individual room sizes. This enables us to have a broad view to start discussions on how we can make best use of the buildings, grounds and facilities on the campus.”

Reduce Risk

AssetWhere enable the school to better manage it’s risk by collating and sharing information with contractors including fire safety information, hazardous substances and other work site information.

“It is also great for getting information to and from contractors the school uses with regards to work sites, fire safety planning and identifying locations of hazardous substances.”

Fettes College were seeking a system to aid facilities management, fire safety planning and identifying hazards including chemical stores and asbestos.

“We wanted a detailed overview of the campus layout and buildings and services to aid facilities management, fire safety planning and identifying the locations of hazardous substances such as chemical stores and asbestos.”
