The name of the new company resulting from the merger between Asset Skills, CSSA and the FMA has finally been announced.
The new organisation will be called The Building Futures Group and will be the only representative organisation for the Housing, Property, Planning, Cleaning, Parking and Facilities Management sectors.
Chief Executive, Sarah Bentley said: “The rationale for the merger was that the industry lacked a consolidated, unified voice. The Building Futures Group will coordinate the sector’s voice and provide a platform that has been so sadly missing. We are fully committed to raising the profile of the industry and transforming the sector”.
The organisation’s goal is to support member companies in their pursuit of ever increasing standards of service and value on behalf of their clients and to assist them in improving their trading positions through innovation and thought leadership.
Both Asset Skills and CSSA will leave the Council, with The Building Futures Group expected to be voted into the BCC at the next meeting in April.
The merger comes about after almost a year of negotiations, and the new organisation will play a leading role in the sector.
