Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,
Many inspiring presentations regarding the development of integrating FM and Corporate Real Estate Management (CREM) functions were held, showing for instance how to significantly reduce operational costs beyond 25%. Realizing savings and integrating two different work functions at the same time means a specific focus which may quite seem like a challenge. This informative and knowledge sharing event showed how the integration of FM and CREM achieves economies of scale.
The way an organization experiences the relationship and the probable different level between the FM and CREM function has a decisive impact on the organization. Speakers from the United Kingdom professors Tim Broyd and Michael Pitt elaborated on the latest developments in FM and CREM.
The program started off with TSP to approach integrated FM already in the design phase to decrease costs and efficiently managing FM and RE services in an organization. The essence of the integrated TSP approach guarantees the spending of fixed costs well managed. Besides that it became clear the preventive maintenance with regards to asset care and facilities is essential for optimal efficiency of cost maintenance.
There are a number of methods to which FM adds value to RE and vice versa. It is fascinating to understand how the continued development of Building Information Management (BIM) systems can be deployed in support of CREM.
The hypothesis of BIM by design is non descriptive in definition. For example BIM is not a ‘must use’, rather it enables improvement and adds value to project delivery and overall operational performance.
Professor Sina Kuseyri made obviously clear how, by managing the air- water and energy disciplines in the built environment, this optimizes operational performances and it to prevail organizations from cost wasting proceedings. He therewith preluded on the various techniques to be presented by some of the next speakers.
Technology is taking point of the way we do business. This of course influences the way we approach the support of the core business. The EEC way of vendor proof integration greatly improves FM and CREM in effectively controlling building systems.
Another aspect which is critical to facility executives and the real estate manager eventually is energy management. VenEsco and Hydromx showed concrete examples of systems to particularly cater both FM and CREM services.
The take home message from Hydrosafe -water treatment techniques for mechanical installations in buildings- shows how the collaboration of FM and RE can effectively benefit the organization of today. Nas Group regarding initiatives for comprehensive health and safety procedures emphasized on the same importance.
This first Facility and Real Estate Management (FREM) event organized on Turkish soil herewith can be taken as a fact! It shows both FM and RE to take part in a different way of looking at the industry finding new and innovative ways of doing business!
