The second edition of The Big 5 Kuwait, which is set to be conducted this year from 22-24 September at the Kuwait International Fair, will feature a special FM Congress on the first day of the event to highlight the role facilities management can play in increasing building performance.

According to SAS International, a British manufacturer of interior fit-out products, this important consideration of facilities management has a vital part to play in how we design and operate buildings and facilities in the future.

“The panel at this timely Congress is looking at a theme that is of utmost importance from an industry perspective,” said Andrew Jackson, director, SAS International. “The scheduled presentation on integrating facilities management at the design stage to reduce lifecycle costs is a critical one.”

Discovering how integrating FM at the design stage can save building life cycle costs supports sustainable delivery and is important not only for commercial office or public space developments, but also for facilities like transportation hubs.

Building solutions and product materials that provide for ease of access for maintenance and cleaning are crucial for longevity, security and safety, and will place special demands on the design of fit out solutions.

Consideration of this at the earliest stages of the design process delivers long term benefits, but also requires close co-operation through the supply chain.
