for Condeco Sense, a wireless utilisation monitoring system that gathers data on key spaces – offices, meeting rooms, break-out areas etc – to provide hard information to underpin decisions about the optimum use of property resources, ensuring they are fully aligned with corporate needs and strategies. The Commercial category was scooped by Keytree for its Matrix booking system, a lightweight mobile-enabled application that helps organisations to manage room and desk resources to improve efficiency and productivity in the workplace. And the Operations category was won by property services company Integral’s Uptime predictive maintenance tool, which adopts a ‘reliability centred maintenance’ focus to give a greater, more useful understanding of building system assets and their performance.

The BIFM Awards The BIFM Awards date back to 2001, though there was a predecessor scheme inaugurated quite a few years before that. Over the years the process has grown and developed, and the categories have evolved to stay in tune with facilities management and the wider marketplace. It’s also worth noting that the judging process has evolved to the point where it is now a model for others to emulate, utilising a carefully selected panel of experts with a range of skills and experiences drawn from across the country, and from within FM as well as other relevant disciplines. This has settled in to being the largest award scheme in the sector, with the winners announced at an October dinner celebration that attracts over 1200 guests each year. The objective is, in the Institute’s words, to recognise and showcase best-in-class facilities management.


PFM magazine organises the other long-running awards scheme. Categories here, too, have changed and developed over the years; but the key theme underpinning all is the concept of partnership, generally between service provider and client. These awards are presented every year at a London dinner held in November, attracting about 600 guests. In 2015, there were 17 categories ranging from Partners in Expert Services, through Partners in Sustainability, to Young Manager of the Year. The judges also select an Overall Winner from amongst the category winners – this went to FM company Cofely in recognition of the success of its relationship with Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. In the judges’ words: “This is an exceptional relationship where the supplier is very closely aligned with the objectives of the Trust and the needs of its patients


In 2015, award categories were focused around three themes – people, impact and innovation – with the purpose being to reflect the important role FM plays in relation to business, the economy and society. Winners were named in 12 categories, ranging from New Product or Service of the Year, through Impact on Customer Experience, to Rising Talent in Facilities Management. In addition, for the past several years there has been presented a Lifetime Achievement Award. This went to the well-known and well- regarded Martin Pickard in recognition of his contribution to FM, which encompasses a long career ‘at the coalface’, an instrumental role in founding the first industry professional body, deep involvement in practice development as well as training and education, and writing, speaking and lobbying in support of greater recognition for all in the industry.
