Each year at our gala awards dinner we recognise high achievers in the FM industry – those who have gone above and beyond in pursuit of excellence in the following four categories: Facilities Manager of the Year, FM Young Achiever of the Year, FM Service Provider of the Year and Facilities Management Team of the Year. Congratulations to our 2021 winners! Entries for the 2022 FMANZ Awards will open early next year.

FM Team of the Year

Introduced in 2021, 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/organisation, as well as demonstrating excellent team qualities.

Learn More

Nominees must predominantly be facilities management practitioners. For the purposes of this award, this includes any team that organises, controls and coordinates the strategic and operational management of facilities in public and private organisations to ensure the assets are fit for their intended
purpose and operate efficiently. This includes creating and sustaining safe and productive environments for occupants and visitors.

Nominations must be submitted on an FMANZ Awards nomination form appropriately covering all judging criteria, with a signed declaration.

The award is an FMANZ award and the expectation is that the team is largely made up of FMANZ Individual/Corporate members – the judges’ decision to accept/decline any nominations is final.

Nominees must have been Individual or Corporate member of FMANZ for 12 months prior to their nomination being submitted.

Team members shall be named, their roles detailed and the FMANZ
membership status noted. Non-FM team members are not required to hold Individual FMANZ memberships (i.e. administration/support staff integral to the team nomination.)

Judges, awards committee members and board members are not eligible to enter.

An individual may nominate only one team per year in this category.

FMANZ Honours & Service Awards

FMANZ is indebted to all the hard-working volunteers who sit on our national and branch committees and generously serve the association in other ways. Each year at our gala awards dinner we recognise those who have made the most valuable contribution by awarding them with a Branch Service Award, National Service Award, Distinguished Service Award, or Fellowship.

Learn More

Because the existing Service Award system isn’t recognising sufficient numbers of worthy members who have made a significant contribution to FMANZ, we are introducing a number of changes, on the recommendation of the Board-appointed Service Awards Working Group.

To place more emphasis on the value or positive contribution made by a nominee (as opposed to simply recognising the duration of service), from 2021 nominations will include both a points score (as in the past) and an endorsement describing what the nominee has done to benefit FMANZ, such as securing new members, innovations introduced, advocacy, securing significant sponsorship, contributing to learning, mentorship, FMANZ brand ambassadorship, ethics and personal qualities.

The points thresholds and points allocations have also been adjusted and the process for generating nominations has moved from being nominator-led to being administered and initiated by the management team.

Here’s how it works:

  • Around November each year, the management team will identify potential candidates and start a points template.
  • The Chief Executive will add any discretionary points and commentary on candidates’ contributions to FMANZ.
  • The points templates and commentaries will be sent to the awards committee.
  • The awards committee will review the proposals and, if it agrees, ask appropriate committee chairs to make formal nominations which will include an endorsement outlining why candidates should receive an award.
  • The awards committee will review the formal nominations and pass its recommendations to the Board.
  • The Board will review (and ratify or decline) these recommendations.
  • Awards will be presented at the annual gala awards dinner.
