Management Consulta AA Projects


Welcome to The Water Cooler, a brand new feature to Tomorrow’s FM, where industry professionals gather to discuss all things FM.


Like any industry, facilities management is constantly on the lookout for innovation and improvement. But how do you do things right when you don’t know where you’re going wrong? We’ve assembled a crack squad of FM professionals to discuss the big issues and analyse the latest industry trends.


This summer, after years of national anticipation, the Olympic torch and Team GB set London aflame with glory and pride - a far cry from what we were to expect if we were to believe the newspapers. Unsurprisingly, and arguably compounded by the G4S fiasco, the media’s build up to the Olympics was focused largely on the organisational problems that London 2012 was likely to face. Despite the odd story to the contrary, the Olympics were something we can collectively be proud of.


FM played a huge, if not silent, part in the success of the Games. Even something as small as keeping the torch lit needed careful procurement, planning and execution.


So what does the industry take from such a colossal organisational project? This month we asked our eggheads, what lessons can we learn from the success of the facilities management program implemented at the Games?
