The Building Futures Group is the name of the new organisation resulting from the merger of Asset Skills, the Cleaning & Support Services Association (CSSA) and the Facilities Management Association, following agreement by the board.
The Building Futures Group is the (UK’s) only representative organisation for the housing, property, planning, cleaning, parking and facilities management sectors. The new name reflects the organisation’s commitment to developing individuals working within the industry, as well as safeguarding the buildings where we live, work and play, now and for the future.
“The rationale for the merger was that the industry lacked a consolidated, unified voice,” explains the recently announced chief executive, Sarah Bentley. “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.”
Steve Davies, chairman of The Building Futures Group states: “I am very pleased to announce Sarah as our chief executive. I know that she will successfully lead the organisation through this exciting new phase as we take our place as a leader in the sector.
“We wanted to ensure that our name was representative of the industries we work with. At the heart of the organisation is our commitment to engaging with young people, opening up the industry to new talent and helping them to build exciting careers. The Building Futures Group brand and logo encapsulate this vision.”
