THE British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has announced the creation of a committee to support BIFM members based in Nigeria and the wider facilities management profession in the region.
The Committee will be responsible for developing a range of ways to support the growing community of facilities management professionals and organisations based in the country, including recruiting new members, promoting best practice and organising seminars and events.
This news means that Nigerian BIFM members can now access local knowledge, support and networking specific to their country, in addition to all the benefits they currently receive.

In a statement issued by the Chair of the BIFM Nigeria Committee and General Manager, Corporate Services, Alpha Mead Facilities & Management Services (AMFacilities), Wale Odufalu, said that committee will also be keen on the development of standards in the sector. ““We will engage in educational opportunities for our members, encourage the next generation of facilities management professionals, and work to promote key issues such as global best practice and benchmarking among others in the sector,” he said.
She said: “Nigeria continues to see investment in real estate and infrastructure. There is also a growing understanding of the value that facilities management can bring to organisations and the economy at large, so our plan is to offer a range of support to our existing members, and the broader facilities management community, to carefully harness these opportunities for the growth of our industry”.
She explained She explained that the initial representation of the body will be in Lagos and Abuja, but it hopes that over time, the Institute can be expanded to other cities and states across the country.
