Facilities Management (FM) is a multi-disciplinary profession that ensures the functionality of the built environment by integrating people, place, processes and technology. Singapore has always faced with the issue of scarce land space, hence facilities management is an “evergreen” industry and there is always demand for manpower.
With legislation on green buildings and energy efficiency, the industry is also in need of skilled personnel with specialization in these niche areas.
The Real Estate Industry Transformation Map (ITM) was developed to ensure the industry can continue to grow and provide good jobs for Singaporeans. Multi-agencies have come together to develop initiatives to support various subsectors to be technology-enabled, customer-centric and productive.
One of the main focuses of the Real Estate ITM will be on Facilities Management (FM) sector. Key Initiatives will be to design and build places with FM in mind, encourage use of innovative solutions and to build up local talent and raise professionalism and attractiveness of the industry.
