Fond farewell to PFM

A slightly alarmist headline as PFM is going nowhere thankfully – but instead it is I saying farewell to it, and our readers, as this is my last week at the editorial helm.


New broom for 2013

Always an appropriate time for a wistful look at the year ahead, this January also marks the end of my stint as Editor of Premises and Facilities Management – a role that it has been an honour to fulfil. So while it is a time of change at PFM, can we expect a new broom to be sweeping the changes through the FM sector?


Future savings based on CSI Energy!

In a bid to make energy management a more scientific and reliable activity, GSH has focussed on a new service. Tim Fryer spoke to the company’s Associate Director of Energy, Aneysha Minocha about how the offering works


Software bridging the divide

Since our last look at CAFM solutions in May of this year (CAFM spreads its wings) developments in this sector have trended towards what can be added to the core solutions. Tim Fryer looks at some of the latest offerings


Specification makeover to maintain standards

Client and contractor demand has resulted in the biggest change in the SFG20 maintenance specification since its launch over two decades ago. Guardians of the specification, B&ES, believe the changes will drive down costs for clients, consultants and contractors.


Cheers for Christmas

With almost all of the windows open on the advent calendar, it is time for Premises & Facilities Management and FM Report to sign off for another year.

When intelligent and receptive people struggle to grasp what is expected of them, or what they may be responsible for, the fault must lie not with them but in the legislative framework. Tim Fryer looks at why health and safety issues still keep FMs awake at night.


Chomping at the bit (1 comment)

It has been an interesting week in which a few of the sector’s recurring themes have risen back to the top of the agenda, and several of these are covered in this week’s FM Report.


Hall of Fame 2011 - Lifetime Achievement Award John Ellis

John Ellis is one of the people credited with forming the FM industry we know today. The reception he received when he was announced as winner of the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award was proof that his peers recognise John’s contribution. As we prepare to unveil the 2012 winners in early November, it is a fitting time to fill up the 2011 Hall of Fame. Tim Fryer went to talk to John at Freidman FM, the company he now manages, to talk about his career and get his views on the FM sector.


Elite agree - FM is different

One thing we can all agree on – FM is different every day!


Don’t let the lights go out

The threat of power shortages is closer than we originally thought according to a report from Ofgem. In fact we may be facing blackouts in as little as three years time.


Renewable interest

Energy is arguably the biggest issue on the FMs agenda. Given that companies have a responsibility to go green and yet energy prices are rising in a struggling economy. Maybe this is the time for the FM to look to the opportunities of renewable energy. Tim Fryer tried to find out.


Have a nice day!

If you in that vast majority who find the continuing economic gloom a bit wearisome, I have recently been subjected to a number of instances that reveal there is a very genuine silver lining to this seemingly endless black cloud.


Recognising the old Masters

There is an untrained sector of the industry – the middle managers in their 30s and 40s - that is destined to lead the industry and yet is untrained to do so. That is the opinion of the Facilities Management Association (FMA), and as Tim Fryer reports, it has come up with a solution.
