BIFM Awards 2016 - Team of the Year
CBRE and AA have picked up this year's FM Team of the Year accolade at the BIFM Awards 2016.
The CBRE AA account team transformed the operation into a leading FM function.
Over the last three years, the FM team supported the organisation through a number of challenges, including floatation on the London Stock Exchange, bulk relocation projects, property rationalisation, opening offices outside the UK and implementing a number of sustainability and CSR initiatives.
Judges noted that the result 'demonstrates what can be achieved when the 'protagonists' commit whole-heartedly to the improvement process'.
The team's improvements in core services, such as security, cleaning and waste, has seen savings. The improvements across the entirety of the contract meant that the partnership was extended for a further three years in 2015, rather than being re-tendered.
The highly commended finalist in this category was the National Grid and 14forty team, which judges noted 'exhibited a best practice and excellent example of partnership between client and provider'.
