Simon Harris, CEO, comments post election

“The new government must seize the moment to collaborate with the facilities management sector to achieve its broader objectives, particularly in reaching net zero, decarbonising large estates, and enhancing building safety through adopting future technology and AI. Immediate actionable steps within the next 100 days are crucial to address these issues and build confidence among the business community. In doing so, I hope to see Sir Keir Starmer and his government not only prioritise the construction of new large estates but also ensure the vital upkeep of older ones. Nevertheless, with change comes new opportunities, and I now hope that this election-winning strategy will be effectively implemented.”
