Space FM team is highly commended in Building / FM Contract of the Year with Scottish Government

Posted: 18th July 2023

SPACE FM Consultancy Services, part of workplace design and management consultancy, Space Solutions, was highly commended for Building/Facilities Management Contract of the Year at last night’s NEC Awards.

This recognition comes for the implementation of an NEC4 (TSC) FM contract to provide integrated facilities support provision across a large, varied and geographically demanding estate. With the added complexity of including multiple stakeholders occupying over 70 properties, the challenge was met in an open and collaborative way and ensured the solution was future-proofed for innovation and continuous improvement.

The Scottish Government project was managed and implemented by Head of FM Consultancy at Space FM, Miguel Montenegro, who holds full accreditation as an NEC4 TSC Service Manager.

Grahame Anderson Head of Delivery Services at the Scottish Government comments: “Space FM was an integral part of the team that specified, tendered, awarded and mobilised the Scottish Government’s FM contract. They worked with us through each step of the procurement journey, helping to achieve all our key milestones in line with Scottish Government policy.

“This included preparations for the application of NEC4 (TSC) through joint training, the development of procedures and, the introduction of contract management software. Their professional support has been a key aspect of our successful migration, through mobilisation, to business as usual.”

Miguel Montenegro said: “Core to the success of this project was our collaborative and one team approach with the Scottish Government. Our expertise on NEC4 (TSC) implementation was critical in bringing a significant solution to a complex arrangement.

“This commendation reflects our profound expertise in contract management, procurement and operational performance that can help to transform a client’s business.”

The Space FM Consultancy Service offers specialist support, using bespoke software packages, with the procurement and adoption processes of NEC contracts and includes fully trained and qualified practitioners in the implementation and use of NEC3 & 4 Contracts (TSC, TSSC, and FM).
