Vietnam Association of Management and maintenance of building has had a meeting with representatives of Aeon Delight (Vietnam) – Asset Management Company of Japan Aeon Group in Vietnam to discuss and seek collaborative opportunities to improve the quality of building management and maintenance in Vietnam.
Share about the current state of building management in Vietnam, Nguyen Quoc Hiep, Chairman of the Vietnam Building Management and Maintenance Association (VBMA), said that in the past 15 years, the number of houses and the number of people living in apartment buildings in Vietnam’s urban areas has grown rapidly, exponentially. The problems arise between residents living in the building with the owner, between the general regulations such as fire protection or maintenance work increasingly arise complexly. Meanwhile, the improvement of the quality of building management and maintenance also faces many challenges because the people still insist on the problem about cost. That is why the VBMA was established, as represented by an organization of issues that businesses and agencies involved in the industry encounter and recommend solutions to problems with agencies state management agencies.
According to Mr.Takayuki Isogai’s judgment, CEO of Aeon Delight (Vietnam), who has spent seven years living in Vietnam, it seems that in Vietnam, only the budget is for constructing the building. Meanwhile, the budget for the operation and maintenance of the building has been largely overlooked. With a long-term vision of 5-10 years, the cost of maintenance management will be very different. According to Mr. Isogai evaluation, building management and operation in Vietnam is quite similar to that of Japan over 40 years ago. However, in Japan, the service sector has been upgraded to Facility Management. Facility Management not only manages the integrated equipment for the building but also concerns factors such as space and bacteria on the space. A professional Facility Management Company can advise and evaluate the life-cycle cost of a building in 10 to 20 years at what level is needed.
