Urban Maintenance Systems (UMS) was pleased to be a silver sponsor exhibitor and presenter at the 4th Local Government & Public Sector, Building Maintenance and Management Conference, staged in Sydney on 11-12 November 2014. UMS assisted in the establishment of this annual conference in 2011 and has been an active supporter since.
This practical conference covered a range of key issues relating to the maintenance and management of local government and public sector buildings with speakers across a broad spectrum of experienced practitioners from both the public, and private sectors. At the UMS stand in the Conference exhibit area, a team including our Chairman, Executive and Regional Account Managers were on-hand to discuss our ability to deliver facility management strategies for managing aging and diverse Local Government property portfolios.
At the conference, our Executive Manager of Building Services, Bret Butler, presented a paper that provided an overview of the success factors and the impact of relationships in outsourcing buildings facilities management contracts titled, “Never Mind the Contract, It’s All About the People”. This presentation is made available on request.
Following from this presentation, Bret has been invited to publish a related article”5 Other Questions for More Successful Outsourced Buildings Facilities Management Contract”, which will appear in a forthcoming edition of FM Magazine.
Once again, UMS is proud to support the Local Government & Public Sector, Building Maintenance and Management Conference series and will continue with our philosophy to support the industries in which we operate.
