The FMCU ultimately achieved their goals for Vision 20:20, which included a global investment program and key FM contracts, by working as “one team” and sharing communication, knowledge and experience across key stakeholders, as well as providing support and ownership within the team.

The UBS’ Integrated Facility Management (IFM) team also earned a highly commended award for their delivery of the UBS workplace vision, which involved a move of 6,500 employees.

Initiatives included creating a “one team” philosophy and culture to break down barriers between the client and suppliers, a “TogetherNow” engagement program to raise the profile of FM in the workplace and to ensure all services were delivered under the most sustainable practices.
