JanFeb15_FC_WebAustralasia’s cleaning and hygiene industry isn’t standing still in terms of technology and, perhaps more importantly, in enhancing its vital role in the facility management process.

The just mailed January/February 2015 INCLEAN magazine’s editorial content underscores the strides made by service providers (notably building service contractors) in multi-service provision and crystal balls 2015’s opportunities.

The growing importance of Building Service Contractors Association of Australia (BSCAA) branch annual excellence awards is given prominence in this issue. Quite rightly, these awards – for Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales – ┬árecognise the our industry’s frontline ‘heroes’, the cleaners.

Respected building service contractor (BSC) executive John Chubb charts, in a personal record, the contracting industry’s evolvement while also emphasising a need to build its image. BSCAA national executive director Barbara Connolly concurs, calling on the industry to improve in order to enable more respect from its clients.

The BSCAA’s incoming national president George Stamas sets out his ‘presidency’ goals, one being to improve the Association’s offering to smaller/medium sized (SME) members. He also perceives that BSCs are securing greater business respect as they enter genuine alliances with property management.

Building Service Contractors New Zealand chief executive officer Lillian Small tackles the technology front with gusto and moots exciting developments on the cleaning-friendly designer and surface fronts. She points to the rapid acceptable of communication technology that allows high quality site hygiene data to be delivered in real time.

Must-read January/February INCLEAN magazine content includes US consultant Ed Selkow’s indepth dissertation on robot technology and its impact on the cleaning industry. “Seriously consider if there is a place for robots in your operation. If not, there will be one soon,” he states.

Profiled service provider companies include Incognitus, Delron Cleaning, Spotless and Danihers Facility Management. And, INCLEAN commences its ‘Women in Cleaning’ series with a profile on Aylin Aydoner, winner of the BSCAA NSW’s Young Manager of the Year 2014 award.
