News 22nd August 2019 facilities management integrator

Workman’s Property Management team is part of  a panel of Managing Agents for Legal and General Investment Management Real Assets (LGIM Real Assets). This comes under its new property management operating model.

This innovative model is aimed at maximising the performance of investments, leading to stronger occupier relationships.

Why the new approach matters

This new approach addresses a shift in service standard requirements, by embedding a Facilities Management Integrator (FMI) Partner into its model in order to provide a more data-led, agile service for its occupiers, which can be tailored and flexed to their specific needs.

Workman is part of the newly improved panel of Managing Agents. They will collaborate with FMI. Their goal is to bring best-in-class property management and a data-driven occupier centric approach. This will be applied to the LGIM property portfolio.

Richard Hart, Partner at Workman, states:

“We are extremely proud to have been appointed to the panel. This is a significant appointment for the Workman property management team. We will be working very closely with Bellrock as LGIM’s new FMI provider, developing new ideas and providing strategic advice to support the Asset Management team in the delivery of their business plans.’’

Bill Hughes, Head of LGIM Real Assets, says:

“This new approach should be a game-changer for the property management industry and will separate the winners from the losers, redefining how we manage our buildings. It creates transparency to build customer trust, employment to fill the skills gap in property management and innovation to future proof our assets. It also encompasses cutting-edge business practices and advances the use of data as a means of measuring, monitoring and maintaining consistent standards.”
