A collaboration agreement has been signed by international FM and property consultancy firms, Agents4RM International, BWA (Europe) and BWA Middle East, which will see them work together on large scale assignments in the UK, Middle East, Far East and Australasia.
Both companies have a strong foothold in international markets with projects ranging from professional training and development around world to advisory roles for government departments.
The collaboration will see key industry figures Dr Connel Bottom, Mike Packham, Lionel Prodgers, Martin Seward-Case and Chris Wragg come together as part of an advisory resource of over 50 professionals including facilities and property management experts, surveyors, technology and engineering consultants.
According to the alliance, many clients are reviewing their asset management activities which require a cross-discipline approach with an increasing emphasis on technology applications and performance analytics. It is here where the combined resources of both companies will be applied.
Lionel Prodgers, Managing Director of Agents4RM commented: “I’m delighted that we will work proactively together with BWA and share our knowledge and expertise for delivery into the emerging markets, as well as for long-established organisations which need to re-evaluate their current operations. We want to encourage the integration of best commercial practice with latest technologies across the whole life cycle of the built environment. This business association will strengthen our ‘responsible’ approach to asset and resources management, combining the physical activities with the digital intelligence.”
Mike Packham, Managing Director of BWA, added: “Both organisations specialise in the provision of independent lean knowledge based property and FM consultancy. It seems a logical step therefore, for the two of us to join forces to provide consultancy services which combine our respective skill-sets in asset management and technology applications to deliver solutions which both meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
