EDITOR’S VOICE EDITOR’S VOICE As the nights draw in and we bid farewell to one of


the hottest British summers on record, we welcome you to the September issue of Tomorrow’s FM.


On 27th June, this year’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Strategic FM Conference took place at 1 Drummond Way, London. In partnership with the International Facilities Management Association


(IFMA) under the title ‘FM: A Risky Business?’, the event sought to achieve consensus on best practice approaches to identifying and mitigating


risks in the wake of recent, high-profile developments in the sector. Just under a month after the conference, RICS released its first Procurement Professional Statement.


The statement was developed to address the issue in the highly competitive FM procurement market, which in worst case scenarios can be engaged in a race to the bottom. The sector is currently splitting into those engaged


in ethical practices and leading on sustainability and those that are not. In a special feature for this month’s issue, Jo Sutherland, Communications Director of the IFMA UK Chapter, expands on an analogy made by Crown


Commercial Service’s Nick Catton: “Procurement is the establishment of a relationship. It’s your match.com profile, or your chat up line.”


For our spotlight features this month, we turn to a subject close to this editor’s heart, Recycling and Waste Management. Tomorrow’s FM were inundated


with content and ideas for the feature which, in part, can be accredited to the ‘Blue Planet effect’. Following David Attenborough’s nature documentary on marine life at the tail end of 2017, meaningful discourse around plastic


pollution has been rightly amplified. Look no further than Radish’s (Churchill Group) article in this issue for a pertinent example of this.


Elsewhere in the issue, with kids now back at school and the wide-spread resumption of normality in our working lives, we explore Educational Facilities with the help of Genesis Biosciences and Ad Hoc Property


Management. Cleaning takes centre stage again, with Opale Management Services arguing that cleaning is not a commodity and should never be


treated as such. We also have a sneak peak at what’s in store at the Fire Safety North event in the middle of October.


Enjoy the issue. Registered in England & Wales No: 06786728
