Facilities management from MAT FM

MAT FM is MAT’s dedicated facilities management division

The MAT FM team works closely with you to keep your critical ventilation system compliant and operating to its design brief.  We respond quickly to service calls and are always there when you need us.  Whether you choose a planned preventative maintenance contract or bring us in for one-off, reactive maintenance, you will be assured of the same high-quality service.


We have a team of skilled ventilation engineers, each trained to carry out the servicing, validation, repair and maintenance of specialised ventilation systems.  We can also provide action plans and yearly audit reports, compiled using site surveys, interviews with key staff members, and careful analysis of your critical ventilation verification reports. 


Maintaining your critical ventilation system

A functioning and compliant critical ventilation system is crucial to the successful operation of complex healthcare and research environments. 


We support you with managing the entire lifecycle of your UCV or HVAC system:

  • Performance management/KPIs
  • Improving reliability and performance
  • Financial planning and budgeting
  • Cost modelling
  • PFI life cycle replacement (change-outs)
  • Lowering energy usage

Supporting energy efficiency

“Energy consumption can increase by up to 60% if regular maintenance is not undertaken. Dirty or faulty fans, air ducts and components directly affect system efficiency and will increase running costs and risk of breakdown.” The Carbon Trust: Hospitals - Healthy Budgets Through Energy Efficiency


MAT FM engineers can keep your critical ventilation system in peak condition for optimum energy efficiency. This saves money and helps achieve carbon reduction targets.

Flexible service provision

At MAT FM, we work around what suits you, and offer planned preventative maintenance (PPM) contracts as well as one-off visits. Servicing can be planned for weekday or weekend for minimum disruption. And if you have an unexpected emergency, we’ll do everything we can to get to you and have your facility back on line quickly and efficiently.

Specialist critical air engineers

MAT FM has a team of engineers located throughout the UK, each with a branded vehicle carrying stock of basic spares. They respond to service calls quickly and deal with faults on the spot if possible, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum.

Well-stocked warehouses

Our warehouses are stocked with spare parts for all major UCV systems, so we can maintain UCV systems regardless of supplier. In addition, we also have a global servicing and validation network for our overseas customers.

Customer support

Our helpful customer service team is always on hand to take your calls and ensure that the right engineer is dispatched to your job as quickly as possible.

Our customers

Keeping your critical air system compliant and in peak condition is vital. If it is not maintained properly, it may not offer the level of protection needed to ensure patient, product or user safety.

“The team from MAT FM gave us excellent service again this year, performing their role in a very respectful and professional manner. I want to thank them particularly for appreciating the patients’ and families’ experience on the unit – your engineers noticed the air vents were causing disturbance and adapted them to reduce the noise; this displays their commitment to providing us with an excellent service and we are very grateful to them.”
