Gudni Johannesson and Brian Atkin

Leaders of the energy industry and government representatives from across the Nordic region met in Reykjavik, Iceland last week (27-29 August 2014) for a conference on Energy Quality Management. Director of the Society, Brian Atkin, who chaired one of the main sessions is shown with the Director-General of the Icelandic Energy Authority (Orkustofnun), Gudni Johannesson.

Adopting standards can prevent failures

Members will be no doubt be pleased to learn that the Society is recognised by British Standards Institution as a representative body in the facilities management field. As such, it is represented on BSI's FMW/1 Technical Committee for Facilities Management by Brian Atkin, Director of the Society. 

See which standards have been published

British Standards Institution (BSI) has published an FM Roadmap that shows key British (BS), European (EN) and international (ISO) standards and those in the pipeline to be published. The roadmap is a useful way of seeing at a glance both the breadth and depth of work that has been undertaken in standards' development. 

BIM comes to the operational phase

Facilities management has received a major boost from the publication of a new standard for building information modelling (BIM). The work was sponsored by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) on behalf of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Task Group with support from the UK government, and was undertaken by the British Standards Institution.
