On 11th February 2016, the awarding ceremony of the “Office of the Year” competition was held now for the 6th time, where our company won the “Facility Manager of the Year” award once again.
The jury, composed of renowned professionals, granted awards in 11 categories. Following the traditions, the evaluation consisted of two phases: after the crowd-voting in every category, the jury of professionals evaluated the applications along a previously defined and objective system of criteria.
We regard the orders received and the contracts extended and/or expanded in 2015 as a professional recognition on behalf of our partners new and old. In July 2015, new quarters of the Correctional Facility of Szombathely were solemnly inaugurated. As a result of this investment, the correctional facility is capable of housing almost 700 more inmates. Through our own development and investment, we introduced the FRANKE Aqua 3000 Open water management system during the project, which enabled water use to become more regulated and predictable, and rendered operation more affordable. Our objective for this investment is to reduce specific water usage by a minimum of 20%.
In the second half of 2015, as a reward for our environmentally conscious operation, we successfully fulfilled the audit requirements for the Green Cleaning trademark – being the first among facility management companies in Hungary -, based on the KT-64 Environmentally friendly cleaning service criteria.
Within the framework of the program “The Modernisation of Future FM”, launched in July 2014, we started to consider the introduction of new and innovative methods and solutions, or the preparation for their introduction.
Among others, the aim of the program is to increase partner satisfaction and operation efficiency through the effective use of the integrated company management, operation and customer service software introduced two years ago, in the course of the continuous development of our group. A further aim is to optimise the working environment of our employees as well as our services by focusing on environmental aspects and by using new, innovative and professional solutions.
Our group has won many facility management tenders in 2014.
As a result, we could welcome numerous new customers among our partners and have renewed many existing contracts.
The Service Contract for the technical operation of the Budapest Airport concluded for a time period of 5 years is among the most important achievements of successful tenders.
We conducted successful negotiations regarding the energy sourcing of our partners representing their interests. Many of our new customers requested this service, therefore broadening our energy portfolio. We continued to pursue our low-energy investments, reducing the energy consumption of buildings by also focusing on the environment protection.
Our group, with its stable background and nationwide network, has been present on the market for almost 25 years. We offer up-to-date facility management solutions to suit the ever changing requirements of the market and of our customers.
Our company is a founding member of LEO (National Association of Facility Management, Building Operation and Maintenance Service Providers), an association aiming to establish technical standards and transparency on the FM market and significantly improve the operation of the entire sector. We joined Euroliance (a strong partnership for international service) in 2008 as an integrated service provider. We took part in the localisation of European FM Standards in Hungary.
Our experience has shown that quality and correctness are highly appreciated qualities. This is also proven by our customers, service areas and the Business Superbrands qualification that we were awarded in 2014. We are proud that Future FM brand has been awarded “Facility Management Company of the Year in 2014”. Our aim is to provide highly efficient and modern facility management services in as many facilities as possible in the future.
