Acacia Soft Services

Acacia is one of the few independent facilities management companies in Ireland offering a managed service model. This means that unlike many of our competitors we have access to a large independent supply chain, which we use to develop a tailored solution for our clients. Acacia believes that, by acting as a strategic partner to organisations, we can cover all aspects of facilities management, from carrying out reviews of a client’s overhead spends, to implementing and managing a total facilities management package.

A dedicated Operational Lead will be appointed to every client.  The Operational Lead will have an engineering discipline if the focus is technical and hard services, or a management discipline if the focus is more on soft service management.  The Operational Lead is the linchpin and will ensure that the right support is provided when required ranging from technical, health and safety, HR, financial etc..  The Operational Lead will be the main point of contact for the client for all services.

Since 2017 the team at Acacia have been managing the Hard & Soft Services at our Dublin HQ in Heuston South Quarter.

Our employee’s comfort and safety is one of our top priorities and Acacia have aligned themselves with those priorities from the very beginning. For these reasons along with many other positive aspects, we would be happy to recommend their services.

Acacia was contracted to run the full design and construction process for our new HQ offices in CityWest. The whole project looked daunting and certainly something we were not skilled to take on but Acacia took all that stress away from us. We were involved in all decisions, having been fully briefed, and made the entire experience as stress-free as possible. We met budget and all timelines which were the two main KPIs on this project. I would have no hesitation in using Acacia Projects Team again.
