Individuals and organisations driving innovation and delivering exceptional results in facilities management stepped into the spotlight when the winners of the 17th annual British Institute of Facilities Management Awards 2017 were revealed on Monday October 9 evening.

There were over 1,200 FM professionals at the event on London's Park Lane (Grosvenor House Hotel).  The host for the evening was star of TV, stage and screen, Stephen Mangan (pictured) - who is perhaps best known for his role in TV comedy hit Episodes; as a presenter on Have I Got News for You; and his TV role as Dirk Gently - Douglas Adams' holistic detective who uses the theory that everything is interrelated to solve his cases.

Carillion was just about able to find the cash to act as headline sponsor. The accolades were awarded in 12 categories across the themes of People, Innovation and Impact.

Ultimately, the Awards showcase the adaptability of individuals and organisations across our ever-evolving and dynamic profession."
