Congratulations to FMANZ's Award Winners
At the FM Summit Gala Awards Dinner held on Wednesday 3 May, FMANZ paid tribute to two of its members who have excelled in their profession. The Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year was presented to Mark Sinclair, Managing Director of FM Concepts Limited, and Director of Facilities for the Britomart Group, which owns, develops and manages a 6.3 hectare site in downtown Auckland.
“This award recognises the outstanding performance by an individual working in the FM profession – someone who has applied their experience and knowledge to produce exceptional results within their facility, as well as demonstrating excellent personal qualities,” said FMANZ's Chairman, Bruce Kenning. While delivering Facilities Management to a broad range of clients over 22 years, Mark has also trained others within the industry and been an advocate for the industry through multiple avenues.

Gregory Emms took away the Young Achiever of the Year Award, which recognises an FM professional under 35 years of age who has shown a strong and ongoing commitment to their personal development and that of the wider industry. A Lead Project Engineer in the Downer FM team, Gregory (31) supports Transpower NZ, helping to manage and maintain the non-generation assets on the Transposer National Power Grid.
“Greg is an innovative, driven and focused FM Engineer, who by hard work and total client engagement has delivered a quality and forward leaning Facilities Management system for Transpower NZ,” said Peter Cosgrove, Service Delivery Manager for Downer NZ – Integrated FM.


New Otago Branch Established
The Board has approved the establishment of an Otago Branch, based in Dunedin. Going forward, National Breakfast Seminars will be held in Dunedin, this year in June, September and November. We will be seeking members to form an Otago Branch Committee. If you are interested in being involved, or have any questions about the new branch, please contact Sascha at membership@fmanz.org.

FM Degree Underway
New Zealand’s first homegrown degree-level qualification, AUT's new Building Engineering major (Bachelor of Engineering Technology), opened its doors to students in February, with a pathway in Asset and Facilities Management. FM professionals are being asked to help build FM futures in New Zealand by providing scholarships, internships and mentoring opportunities for students. For more information, email info@fmanz.org.  Read more about the degree, or for an article about what the new degree means for FMANZ, click here.

What is Facilities Management?

 

The Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) defines a Facilities Manager as one who ‘organises, controls and coordinates the strategic and operational management of buildings and facilities in public and private organisations to ensure the proper and efficient operation of all physical aspects of a facility, to create and sustain safe and productive environments for occupants.’
