RICS Strategic FM case studies launch

Over the past three years, International Workplace has been commissioned by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors to present case studies demonstrating the innovative work FM companies are doing to professionalise and showcase the industry. Previous case studies have focused on FM as a brand, ‘critical’ FM, and strategic planning.

The launch of the latest – the fifth edition in the series – takes place at RICS HQ in Parliament Square, London, on Wednesday 8 November and is free of charge.  It’s open to anyone interested in strategic and operational issues in facilities management – you don’t have to be a RICS member to attend.

Case studies in the fifth edition examine social value, and how FM can have a social impact. Facilities management is well placed to drive significant social value, and the case studies presented in this latest series are testament to the significant impact FM can have on its wider communities, as well as operationally.

Managing Director of International Workplace, David Sharp, will be introducing presenters from some of the firms behind these latest case studies, including Allan Vaughan, Executive Director Defence at ISS; Rory Murphy, Commercial Director at Vinci; and Colin Kenton, Managing Director of FM Services at KBR.

All attendees will receive a free copy of this latest fifth edition, which contains six new case studies:

  • Integrating Armed Forces leavers back to work – ISS Facility Services and Veterans Employment Transition Support (VETS)
  • Servest Future Leaders – promoting personal and professional development through a leadership programme
  • Engaging an increasingly age-diverse workforce – Sodexo ‘Generations’
  • Supporting small businesses by integrating FM services - KBR’s services to the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime and Metropolitan Police Service
  • Aviva and Partners – making work pay through the Living Wage
  • VINCI Facilities and Barking and Dagenham College – working with stakeholders to improve the learning and employment skills of young people in east London

Registration is from 5.30pm and it concludes at 7.30pm with a networking drinks reception for networking. Register online at to reserve your place now.
