Responding to the FM Challenge – Lessons from Constructing Excellence Asset Group

Share This:

In February earlier this year we hosted a Responding to the FM Challenge constructing excellence breakfast event where we welcomed John O’Brien, Chair of the constructing excellence asset management theme group to Leeds to give an overview of the task group’s work on maximising operational excellence in buildings. At the seminar John outlined how built assets can be more effectively procured and operated to help organisations deliver their vision, strategy and objectives. John mentioned that 2015 will see the publication of a guide summarising lessons learnt through the theme group & it’s associates. & provide examples of case studies and best practice modules for FM that companies could take forward into their own organisations.

Following on from this session John published the following article for Constructing Excellence in May reflecting on that work so far. The full article, reproduced below, originally appeared on the Constructing Excellence website here
