BESA to Collaborate with ThisWeekinFM 
30 July 2020 | Updated 31 July 2020
 

ThisWeekinFM has formed a strategic partnership with BESA, the voice of firms active within the building services and FM industry.

Through this partnership, the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) will be able to offer their members a valuable outlet to share industry news with facilities management decision-makers.

In addition, the strategic partnership also extends to SFG20, which is widely recognised as the definitive standard for planned maintenance. An online resource library, SFG20 provides cost savings through optimal maintenance of assets, peace of mind with up-to-date legislation along with accurate and efficient tendering.

 

“The emergence of COVID-19, as well as the future reforms following the Grenfell tragedy and the climate agenda, will continue to drive and accelerate the evolution of the sector and I see engagement with ThisWeekinFM readers as crucial to the conversation.” 

–Steve Tomkins

Head of Business Development, SFG20

 

 

Crucial Conversations in the Industry

 

Steve Tomkins, Head of Business Development for SFG20 said: “SFG20 are delighted to be part of the BESA strategic partnership with ThisWeekinFM and see the relationship as being key to sharing our ongoing developments.”

“The emergence of COVID-19, as well as the future reforms following the Grenfell tragedy and the climate agenda, will continue to drive and accelerate the evolution of the sector and I see engagement with ThisWeekinFM readers as crucial to the conversation.” 

Client Relationship Director at ThisWeekinFM Dave Mapps added:

“Representatives across BESA work closely with the government and industry leaders, actively inputting on key issues within the sector. This is something we are keen to support and help promote to our readers

“As the leading news and information service for the facilities, workplace and built environment community, we are well-placed to provide both BESA and SFG20 with a great platform for them to engage with a significant and relevant audience. 

“Alongside the introduction of our Editorial Advisory Board, this alliance will further strengthen our offering and ensure we remain at the forefront of industry news.” 

 

BESA and SFG20

 

BESA exists to reflect the needs of their members and to encompass all of the specialist services available within the built environment. They are a particularly active voice when it comes to skills, standards, compliance, building safety and indoor air quality. 

The body was established in 1904 and was previously known as the Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association (HVCA). Their primary focus is to support and serve their members active in the design, installation, commissioning, maintenance, control and management of engineering systems and services in buildings.

Their members range from the smallest enterprises to the largest organisations within the industry, offering specialist support services, training courses and advice that is tailored to meet their individual requirements.

SFG20 is the standard maintenance specification for building engineering services, and the name of the group that’s responsible for the upkeep of this standard. 

It is the benchmark for working standards; providing building owners, managers, contractors, consultants and end-users with the tools to keep buildings properly maintained and compliant. SFG20 is made available through a dynamic web-based service which is updated in real-time.
