Arlette Verleyen uitgeroepen tot eerste Facility Manager of the Year / élue Facility Manager de l’Année

Arlette Verleyen uitgeroepen tot eerste Facility Manager of the Year  / élue Facility Manager de l’Année | The Profacility Magazine's FM Web Review | Scoop.it

De uitreiking van de IFMA Facility Awards zijn de voorbije jaren uitgegroeid tot een hoogtepunt binnen het facilitaire werkingsjaar. Dit jaar kreeg de formule een nieuwe wending: voor het eerst werd niet langer een facilitair project uitgeroepen tot winnaar van de competitie, maar ging de eer naar een facility manager die door zijn of haar manier van denken, visie, engagement en inspanningen het beroep van Facility Manager bekendheid en erkenning bijgebracht heeft en een belangrijke bijdrage geleverd heeft tot de verdere professionalisering van de functie.

 

----------------------

 

La remise des IFMA Facility Awards est devenue, au fil des ans, le point d’orgue de l’année facilitaire. Cette année, cet évènement a pris une nouvelle tournure : pour la première fois, ce n’est pas un projet facilitaire qui a été élu mais cet honneur est revenu à un facility manager qui, par sa façon de penser, sa vision, son engagement et ses efforts a apporté au métier de Facility Manager une notoriété, une reconnaissance et a grandement contribué à la poursuite de la professionnalisation de la fonction.

RE:flex, a ‘New Way of Working’ workspace

RE:flex, a ‘New Way of Working’ workspace | The Profacility Magazine's FM Web Review | Scoop.it

RE:flex (flexible business lounge), an initiative of Intervest Offices & Warehouses,is located in the Mechelen North Business Park within Mechelen Campus, and its objective, as an innovative office concept, is to respond to new methods in terms of flexibility and efficient collaboration. Intervest already has a business centre on the 12th and 14th floors of the Mechelen Campus Tower, where small office areas within a full service context are let by MC Square.
Luc Feyaerts, Head of Asset Management at Intervest, explains what is different about RE:flex: “RE:flex is much more than a business centre, concentrating on co-working and offering users an access card to the building and a range of facilities and services invoiced according to use. This could be compared to membership of a fitness centre, where the athlete decides which equipment he is going to use and which courses he is going to attend”.
Speaking of fitness, a fitness centre operated by Health City on the Mechelen Campus site is one of the special services offered by RE:flex to its clients! Of note are also a child-minding service and quality catering…

Facility management as a profession: Fighting perceptions

Facility management as a profession: Fighting perceptions | The Profacility Magazine's FM Web Review | Scoop.it
MICHEL THERIAULT of Strategic Advisor questions why facilities managers don’t get the same time, attention and resources that their colleagues do and provides his opinion on how to get facility management to be taken more seriously.

For facility management to be a profession, not just a job, we need to make changes in what we think our role is and how it’s perceived within the companies and organisations we serve. We’ve come a long way from the ‘master builder’, where one person could have most of the knowledge needed to build and maintain structures that house people and processes. The high cost of the built environment as well as the increasing technological complexity and much higher risks have transformed the role and elevated its importance within companies.
Yet, even though the value of what we manage is often second only to employee costs and the working environment has an important influence on the value companies get out of their employees, manufacturing or other core business processes, facilities managers don’t get the same time, attention and resources from senior leadership in their companies that their colleagues do.

Security is often seen as an overhead to most businesses and a reluctant purchase or cost centre. However, security increasingly has the potential to contribute in various ways to organisational functioning and management outside of its traditional role.
For some years, security and safety have been related as the monitoring function integral to CCTV control rooms and provides the basis for monitoring safety violations and hazardous conditions. This can affect anything from a factory where personal accidents can lead to major labour and cost implications, to retail sites where the welfare of customers and staff can be protected.

Virtualization’s exploding popularity is easy to understand given its potential to lower hardware spending, simplify administration and boost availability, so it comes as little surprise that nearly 80 percent of server workloads supported by x86 hardware will be running on virtual machines (VMs) by 2016, according to analyst firm Gartner Inc.

IT and facility management teams, however, must account for some new power-management realities, because despite all of its advantages, virtualization subjects data centers to many new, significant power-related challenges.

It's Time for a Little Energy Management Amnesty - Sustainable Plant | The Profacility Magazine's FM Web Review | Scoop.it

A lot of people in the chemicals industry are afraid to admit that they waste energy. Consider the typical comment, "We are already as efficient as we can be." Top managers, especially, have no practical choice but to say this. If a facility manager says "Sure, we have a number of inefficiencies, and they’ve accumulated under my watch," how long can he expect to stay employed? Admitting to energy waste is an embarrassment with potentially dire consequences.
