The Nigerian FM Roundtable 2019Strategies for Implementing Global Standards in Nigeria’s Facilities Management Sector

With Real Estate assets becoming an integral part of business operations, brand identity, and corporate culture, organizations globally are, more than before, paying serious attention to not just the look and feel of their buildings; but ensuring that their management standards are consistent across all their locations.

Also, with the increasing interests of global brands in Africa and consequent pickup of the Real Estate industry on the continent, the need to leverage local capacity to deliver global standards is still largely unmet; with only few indigenous Facilities Management companies able to demonstrate this capability.
In Nigeria, the situation is not different: global brands are entering the market and the Real Estate industry, particularly the office space market is responding – although currently oversupplied – with the required sophistication in terms of design and technology.
While the country is witnessing entry of some global FM companies, the issues remain how to localize global standards on the one hand; and how local FM companies, who are now upscaling to standards such as the ISO 9001:2015, will implement with local capacity, on the other hand.

The Nigerian FM Roundtable 2019 seeks to – against the backdrop of the ISO 41000 FM Standards – spotlight trends around localizing global FM standards, the challenges in the Nigerian market, and strategies that can help local FM companies and businesses implement global standards.

Keynote Address

Strategies for Implementing Global Standards in Nigeria's Facilities Management Market | George Etomi, Principal Partner, GEPLAW

As Nigeria positions for global investments, Real Estate and Infrastructure will play critical roles in the value chain that delivers both sustainable economic development and enhanced living condition for the country and its people.

In addition, building human capital capacity and standards to support the provision and management of these critical infrastructure and Real Estate will also be very key. Therefore, organizations and government must be deliberate in their approach to grow local capacity to implement global FM standards in their various spheres.

This keynote seeks to open up the Real Estate & Facilities Management (REFM) sector in Nigeria, highlight trends around global standards, identify challenges inhibiting the implementation of global standards in the different sectors of the nation's economy and make recommendations about strategies to get Nigeria up to speed in the global scheme of things.

The goal is to create a platform for discussion of the various aspects of the FM Market in Nigeria and how these sectors interact with standardization currently and what a global FM standard such as the ISO 41000 will mean to these sectors.
