Yesterday FMANZ opened entries for the 2022 FMANZ Awards with the announcement of a new award.

Recognising the implementation of innovative practices and/or processes, the new Sustainability & Environmental Impact Award celebrates FM professionals who are making a difference by inspiring the FM industry to enhance the social, environmental and economic sustainability of the communities we live in. Nominees can be individuals, teams, companies or consortiums that have implemented a project and/or process(es) over the past year.

This new award sits alongside four existing awards.

The Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year is awarded for outstanding performance by an individual working in the FM profession. The judges are looking for nominees who have applied their experience and knowledge to produce exceptional results within their facility and/or organisation, as well as demonstrating excellent personal qualities. Note: Self-nomination is not permitted.

The Facilities Management Team of the Year Award recognises the outstanding performance of a team working in FM – a group of professionals who have applied their experience and knowledge to produce exceptional results within their/their client’s facility, as well as demonstrating excellent team qualities.

The Service Provider of the Year Award acknowledges outstanding provision of contracted-out facilities services. Awarded to an organisation that has demonstrated market-leading performance in service delivery, innovation and value for money, the winner of this award can be either a provider of a range of FM services, or an organisation delivering outstanding performance in a single area of service. These can be hard or soft services provided to any sector of the New Zealand FM market.

The Young Achiever of the Year Award has been renamed The Emerging FM Professional of the Year Award “in acknowledgment of the fact there are myriad ways people come to the industry and no set career path FMs follow,” explains John Hutchings, Chair of the Awards Committee. “This is an award for those relative newcomers to the industry who have a talent and genuine passion for FM; those with a commitment and willingness to go the extra mile, and who are driven to seek out extra responsibilities and new skills to expand their knowledge and fast-track their career in FM. If this sounds like someone you know, please get your entry into us by the second of May.” Note: No age restrictions and self-nomination is not permitted.

Key dates:

29 March – Entries open.
2 May (midnight) – Entries close.
15 July – Finalists announced.
14 September – Awards presented at the FM Summit Gala Awards Dinner.
