FMANZ Awards no year (1)-911


Awards Now Open!
Nominations are open for the 2020 FMANZ Awards! If you know someone who deserves recognition for the great work they're doing (including yourself), it's time to tell us about it. As well as the Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year, Young Achiever of the Year and Service Provider of the Year, we're calling for nominations for National and Branch Service Awards too. See here for more information. Entries close 29 March.

FM Involvement in Design Phase Positively Influences Outcomes
A recent BRANZ report makes the case for involving FM professionals early in the building design phase. The report found that early engagement of FM practitioners in planning and development, particularly in relation to building whole-of-life performance as well as whole-of-life costs, has potential to add significant value. “Early FM engagement contributes towards the three realms of building quality – functionality, durability and performance. FM practitioners use their operational knowledge to ensure buildings are designed in a way that can be sustainably and safely managed.” Jointly funded by FMANZ and the BRANZ Building Research Levy, the Facilities Management Industry Census canvassed 255 people working in the industry via an online survey, including 168 facilities management practitioners and 32 ‘purchasers’ (FM clients and/or building owners). BRANZ researchers Nick Brunsdon and Anne Duncan also carried out follow-up interviews around FM involvement in design and construction.
