PFM Awards winners announced

11 November 2009

A partnership between the BBC and Balfour Beatty Workplace has won the Partners in FM –Corporate Award and the Overall Award at the PFM Awards 2009 held at The Brewery, London last night (Wednesday 11th November).

Overall winners BBC with Balfour Beatty Workplace

The partnership which began in 2003 has evolved from providing hard and soft services to 57 buildings and 93 outstations in the English regions, to providing full FM across the BBC’s regional estate and reporting to BBC Workplace internal team. This small BBC team relies on Balfour Beatty Workplace to run the services throughout the region which they do very successfully.
The judges said ”What sets this partnership apart from the others is the impressive enthusiasm demonstrated by both sides and how the BBC has relinquished the operational management of their buildings which is a major achievement in partnering."
Among the new Awards presented this year was one for Lifetime Achievement in FM  to recognise people in the facilities management sector whose experience, knowledge and contribution to the development of the profession has been exceptional.  The winner was Michael Cant of Larch Consulting who, as one of the earliest proponents of facilities management as a professional discipline, has taken leading roles in its institutions - particularly in the RICS FM Faculty and Asset Skills Council FM Board.  He has made a significant contribution to the body of learning in FM  and is currently external examiner for the FM Masters courses at Sheffield Hallam University.
The PFM Awards dinner held at the Brewery this week (Wednesday 11th November) was hosted by Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies, and was attended by more than 500 people from the facilities management sector and their clients. Now in their 16th year, the PFM Awards are recognised throughout the facilities management sector as the premier accolade for best practice at working in partnership to deliver facilities and support services across a broad spectrum of organisations in the private and public sectors.
