SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions - Members with RFMA
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions has been a member of the Restaurant Facility Maintenance Association for over three years. On the RFMA website, a short history of the group is given:
“In January, 2004, Joe Robertson, President of Rightway Facility Services, met with a group of facility directors from major restaurant groups, Carlson Restaurants Worldwide, Darden Restaurants, Brinker International, Applebee’s and P.F. Changs. Together they pondered one of the major questions facing their companies: How can facility directors manage the facilities of their ever-growing chains without adding manpower? They decided in that meeting that it was not a company problem, but an industry-wide problem, and the only way to solve the problem was to find new ways of doing business.
In thinking about new business practices, the attendees deliberated about an association specific to their needs as restaurant facility professionals. The existing associations were indeed helpful, but not to the degree these facility directors were seeking. Some restaurant groups were specifically interested in educational opportunities for their restaurant staff, insuring their teams had some career paths. Others expressed interest in professional certification.
The restaurateurs also discussed their contractors and suggested the possibility of pooling their best vendors into a master list that all facility directors could use. They also talked about best practices and solutions, and how, as a team of restaurateurs, they could share ideas among themselves about how to protect the company assets.”
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions is proud to be affiliated with such an organization that is so devoted to the success of restaurateurs and their staff.
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions - LEED
For 2 years, SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions has been a member of Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, or LEED. As described on the group’s website:
“LEED stands for green building leadership. LEED is transforming the way we think about how buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe.
LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project… LEED v4 is the newest version of the world's premier benchmark for high-performance green buildings.
This version is bolder, more specialized, and designed for an improved user experience.
Here's why LEED v4 is better:
Includes a focus on materials that goes beyond how much is used to get a better understanding of what's in the materials we spec for our buildings and the effect those components have on human health and the environment
Takes a more performance-based approach to indoor environmental quality to ensure improved occupant comfort
Brings the benefits of smart grid thinking to the forefront with a credit that rewards projects for participating in demand response programs
Provides a clearer picture of water efficiency by evaluating total building water use”
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions is proud to work in conjunction with LEED.
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions - SIMA
For six years, SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions has been a member of the Snow and Ice Management Association, or SIMA. Below is a summary about the organization’s vision and history, as provided on their website:
SIMA will become broadly recognized as the “go to” resource for both its members and any local or national entity related to the snow and ice management industry. A financially robust organization, SIMA will be a crucial industry force to increase the professional capacity of its members, and to promote that professionalism to those needing snow and ice management services. SIMA will provide far-reaching and farsighted leadership on legislative, regulatory, and business issues facing the industry, and will guide a vigorous and proactive industry agenda for responsible environmental stewardship. A large and diverse membership will select from a broad range of program content and delivery mechanisms that meet rapidly changing member needs. At the same time, members will increasingly enjoy and benefit from the many networking opportunities provided by their association.
In 1996, eight contractors shared a common vision. They saw the need for those involved in snow & ice management to come together under one professional trade organization. They knew that in order for this organization to be a voice for the industry, it would have to be a true non-profit trade association.
Since that time, SIMA has matured into a dynamic organization with an international membership. The association provides resources, leadership, and support to the snow and ice industry.”
SMS Superior Maintenance Solutions is proud to work with this organization.
