FM builds partnership

02 June 2011

An international facilities management company has teamed up with a global property and construction company to offer ‘responsible facility management’.

Cost consultancy Rider Levett Bucknall UK is taking a minority equity stake in Agents4FM International, as a means of cementing the alliance of the companies, and Lance Taylor, CEO of Rider Levett Bucknall UK will join the Board of Agents4FM International.

Together the business aims to provide comprehensive FM and strategic services alongside extensive cost and project management support and bring together the asset, organisation and corporate goals when developing a property and facility management strategy. The advice will cover corporate responsibility, carbon efficiency, sustainability and cost reduction through the effective management of facilities, assets and resources, as well as a range of procurement services, performance measurement and service improvement techniques.

Lance Taylor, CEO at Rider Levett Bucknall, said: “The partnership with Agents4FM allows us to present a powerful package. The company has the specialist skills and experience required to support our existing work with clients and develop the range of comprehensive services that we already offer them. “Together, we will offer advice from the initial planning and feasibility stages through to construction, occupation and asset and organisational performance.”

Lionel Prodgers, founding Director of Agents4FM, said: “The strength of these combined capabilities, expertise and resources is unmatched in the market. Agents4FM now has a reach and capability to meet the needs of global customers, and we are being supported by one of the most comprehensive and highly experienced teams of consultants in the industry.

“We have built the concept of Responsible Facilities Management to use all our best-practice processes and knowledge to offer our customers positive results linked to their strategic goals. “We align FM processes with corporate strategies to ensure that the right services are provided at the right time and at the right cost. It is a much more detailed and thorough process.

“We believe that together we can deliver a unique and highly valuable combination of services to the market”
