Food for Thought and Information

Two separate events by BSRIA and RICS next month are vying for attention for FM professionals in the same week.

The first is at the RICS’ headquarters and will examine the future requirements of the workplace in order to remain competitive in talent attraction with the argument that the building, design and facility all form part of the proposition to young people as we move from employer led to employee led requirements.

The main speaker will be Trevor Miles, a Chartered Management Consultancy Surveyor who works at IBM Global Business Services in the Business Analytics and Strategy (BA&S) service line.

He is the UK and Ireland Smarter Buildings, Real Estate and Facilities Management Consulting lead. Clients he has worked for include: global banks, leading retailers, government departments, facilities management companies, real estate development companies and other major organisations including IBM. Trevor will speak on Smart FM: Requirements for the millennials.

Recent research indicates that there is a need to examine the future requirements of the workplace in order to remain competitive in talent attraction. The building, design and facility all form part of the proposition to young people as we move from employer led to employee led requirements.

The meeting begins at 08.00-09.30 on Wednesday, 3 February RICS, 12 Great George Street Parliament Square, London SW1P 3AD.

 

BSRIA

The BSRIA meeting is aimed at bringing the FM sector together with the construction supply chain.

Advancement in Building Information Modelling (BIM) gives the industry an opportunity to get information management right from the start for new projects. BSRIA contends that delivering information is relatively easy in this digital age but delivering ‘useful’ information is more challenging.

The event will provide an introduction into the power of good information and then looks in more detail as to what the supply chain is being challenged with and how clients can improve what they ask for.

A challenge presented from a recent case study is designed to get the delegates thinking about information management which is followed by a workshop to identify the information requirements needed in operation and how the supply chain can deliver that.

“Building managers are tasked with the never ending job of keeping up with the demands of the core business and it is advantageous for all those tasked with this to embrace BIM in order to demonstrate the best use of resources and the savings that could be achieved,” explained Tracey Tilbry, Networks & Events Manager, BSRIA. “Above all, these events are a fantastic opportunity to network and share best practice with your peers, clients and competitors.”

The meeting is run as a series of events for BSRIA’s O&M Benchmarking Network which has been running for almost 15 years and is being held on Friday, 5 February, from 09:30-13:30 at Thomson Reuters, Canary Wharf, London EC14 5EP.
