Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors Plans Closer Ties With IWFM
14 August 2023
 

The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors and the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management are planning to establish a formal relationship.

The two bodies have drafted a Memorandum of Understanding, with the intention to collaborate and share information in areas of common interest, including training, education and professional services.

Both parties recognise their mutual knowledge and expertise in the areas of civil engineering and facilities management, and will promote each others' CPDs and networking events.

The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) CEO Simon Hamlyn explained the reason for the new partnership: “This new MoU with the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management establishes a formal relationship between both our organisations.

‘It provides a perfect platform for future collaboration on a range of mutually beneficial opportunities, such as professional development and policy initiatives.”

Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) Chair Mark Whittaker added: “Understanding and collaboration, between the CICES specialists that survey our civil structures and the IWFM professionals who super-connect those buildings and workplaces in operation, can only be a win in facing major challenges ahead.”
