Facilities Management in the UK: 2023 Progress Report & Webinar

The UK FM Market: What's Getting Better and What's Not?

A RECAP: WHERE WE STARTED

In October of 2023, we embarked on an essential mission. Through our groundbreaking webinar: “12 Reasons Why the UK FM Market is Screwed and its a Good Thing”, we unveiled the pressing challenges, creating waves and sparking much-needed conversations across our industry.

PROGRESS REPORT: THE FM LANDSCAPE ONE YEAR LATER

The FM market is stabilising after the turbulence caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and other issues. The focus is now on specialization, comprehensive packages, technology, and sustainability. Real estate players are becoming more active in managing the supply chain of buildings, and there is a talent shortage in both the FM industry and the buyer side. The lack of an interest report and the need for companies to position their brands are causing challenges in the reactive market.

Collaboration with buyers is underway to improve data gaps and provide better insights. Insourcing and reprocurement are popular trends, but there is a decline in frameworks, resulting in fewer contract opportunities. Retention is a challenge, and there is a lack of standardization and clear guidelines in the industry. Positive developments include sustainability initiatives, but there is a need for better transparency and accountability.

Accessing complete and accurate data on contracts is difficult, and the importance of investing in AI and new technologies is highlighted. A new platform called Lens is introduced to provide valuable insights into expiring contracts and the annual value of contracts. Integrated FM services are trending, and a tool has been developed to address data gaps and support buyers and suppliers. Collaboration, integration, and long-term growth are key factors in future-proofing the FM industry.

PROGRESS REPORT: THE FM LANDSCAPE ONE YEAR LATER

Hello FM friends! It’s been a year since we sounded the alarm on the state of Facilities Management in the UK. Today, it’s time to reevaluate, recalibrate, and redefine our approach, ensuring that we’re on the path to progress.

A RECAP: WHERE WE STARTED

In October of 2023, we embarked on an essential mission. Through our groundbreaking webinar: “12 Reasons Why the UK FM Market is Screwed and its a Good Thing”, we unveiled the pressing challenges, creating waves and sparking much-needed conversations across our industry.

WHERE ARE WE NOW?

The tides of time have turned, and so has the landscape of #FacilitiesManagement. This juncture calls for an essential question: Have we steered the ship in the right direction or are we still adrift?
  1. Tech Integration: Is the synergy between technology, analytics, and FM only on paper, or have we seen tangible integrations?
  2. Sustainability Metrics: Have we genuinely advanced towards our sustainability goals, or is it still a PR stunt?
  3. Adaptations Across Sectors: How have key pillars – Private, Public, Real Estate, and PFIs – reshaped their approach to FM?
