The Ghana FM Roundtable 2017Enabling Positive Experiences

As Ghana positions to stimulate its economic potentials through infrastructure and real estate activities, corporations and businesses around the country also continue to seek ways of reducing cost, improving people’s productivity and increasing bottom line performance.

The Ghana FM Roundtable 2017 therefore presents a platform for all stakeholders in business and government to discuss ways of optimizing existing infrastructure, designing sustainable strategies for new ones, and the roles of FM in the country’s journey to economic advancement.

These issues and more are entrenched in the theme of the roundtable: Enabling Positive Experiences, as released by the Global FM Body - in commemoration of the World FM Day. This business roundtable designed for top government officials, business leaders and Service Support professionals in the Ghana Real Estate market. It seeks to highlight the place of Facilities Management in empowering the Ghana people for the level of productivity required for the nation to achieve its economic goals. It will consider the concept of Enabling Positive Experiences from two perspectives: the processes of providing FM services, and the benefits of infusing FM into Real Estate projects from the design phase.

These perspectives will drive conversations at the different breakout sessions on how FM can enable positive experience in Ghana's growing Commercial and Retail Real Estate sector, its fast-rising corporate business environment and its luxury private residential market.

This event is strictly for business leaders, heads of relevant government parastatals, lead Facilities Management executives and top Real Estate professionals.

Industry Analysis

Since the discovery of oil in Ghana in 2007, the fortune of its Real Estate industry has grown significantly. From the rising profile of a luxury residential market, to an anticipated 170, 000 square meters of prime office spaces and retail centres; the Ghana Real Estate sector is fast becoming the jewel on the nation’s economic crown.

To establish the nation as one of Africa’s Real Estate investment destinations, and further give investors comfort that their assets can deliver maximum value in a cost-effective way; without compromising quality, a vibrant, standard-driven Facilities Management sector must developed and sustained.

In view of this, it is now important that West African Countries with huge Real Estate potentials like Ghana, begin to develop their markets in such ways that they can  increase their Real Estate contribution to GDP, create more employment for their teaming population, and grow the wealth of their people for economic prosperity.

With increased Real Estate Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) into Ghana in the past 10 years, approval of US$30 million Public Private Partnership (PPP) public infrastructure fund by the World Bank, and registration of construction projects estimated at US$232 Billion by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) in 2016; Ghana is demonstrating immense potentials as one of Africa’s Real Estate Investment destinations.

However, for this potential to manifest, the Facilities Management Sector – which is responsible for about 80 – 90 percent of the Real Estate lifecycle, must be developed concomitantly.

A thriving Facilities Management sector is not only re-assuring for foreign Real Estate investors, it also holds create employment potentials for Ghanaians; as it is in the United Kingdom, where it is valued at approximately £111billion, and employed almost 10% of UK’s working population in 2015.

The Ghana FM Roundtable - An Overview

The Ghana Facilities Management Roundtable is the first of the kind on the Country’s economic scene.

The event, which is organized in commemoration of the annual World Facility Management Day, is designed to be an annual FM and Real Estate Business-to-Business strategy forum; organized by leading FM Company, Alpha Mead Facilities & Management Services, Ghana, to increase awareness and deepen understanding of Facilities Management and how it can support business profitability, people productivity and environmental responsibility in Ghana.

It is conceived as a platform for key stakeholders in the Ghana Real Estate sector to share ideas, strategize and deliberate on issues affecting the industry and practice in the country.

AMFacilities is spearheading the charge towards ensuring that Facilities Management takes its rightful place as a critical contributor to the nation’s economy, by regularly assembling key stakeholders, experts and the media to discuss issues in the industry, set new agenda for practitioners, and increase the level of awareness of the practice.

Having completed four editions in Nigeria, the roundtable has proven over the years to be one platform that has strategically increased awareness and level of education about Facilities Management practice and policy formulation for the industry.

In 2012, the first edition of the FM Roundtable was organized in Nigeria with the theme: Advancing Global Best Practices in the Real Estate & Facilities Management industry in Nigeria. The 2013 edition had the theme: Creating an Enabling Environment for sustainable Maintenance of Real Estate Assets and Public Infrastructure in Nigeria. In 2014, stakeholders discussed: Towards Optimal Performance of Critical Infrastructure and Real Estate Asset in Nigeria. In 2015, major players from five key sectors discussed: Building Resilience for the Future. And in 2016, the event focused on the global theme: Empowering People for a Productive World.
