The Middle East Facility Management Association (MEFMA) recently held a seminar in Kuwait as part of its continuous bid to enhance the regional facilities management (FM) market’s growth and competitiveness. MEFMA regularly holds a series of interactive seminars in different parts of the region to discuss the most pressing issues affecting the reality and future of the sector in light of the rapid technological progress and a growing sustainability trend.
During the Kuwait seminar, MEFMA senior officials joined a group of industry experts and decision makers. The attendees tackled the latest FM products and services developed to help conserve energy and water, reduce carbon footprint, and improve air quality inside the buildings. They also focused on how leaders in the local construction industry, facilities’ owners, and utility managers can implement the best global industry practices in relation to managing the facilities. The discussion was in line with MEFMA’s efforts to standardise the dynamic FM processes in the Middle East to effectively address emerging challenges and optimise current and future market opportunities.
The seminar provided the participants an ideal platform to gain an in-depth understanding of the life cycle of buildings, the facilities assessment mechanisms, and the collection of reliable asset information from the teams involved in the design, construction, building, testing, and commissioning stages. The attendees also discussed key training programme designed to enhance human resources management. The event was sponsored by leading private companies in Kuwait, which include The Engineering Systems Group (Headline Sponsor), United Facilities Management (Headline Sponsor), Ecovert FM Kuwait (Seminar Sponsor) and the Kuwait Society of Engineers (Supporting Association).
