From the
Editor
Welcome to the latest issue of Practical FM magazine.
As usual, we have news stories, case studies and new product details from
all around the very diverse FM sector.
Hopefully, the late snow that we have seen in March and over the Easter
period will now be a distant memory and some much warmer and drier
weather will be on the way.
It would be great to get out and about and possibly visit some of the really
interesting shows coming up in very soon.
The Facilities Event is taking place at the NEC Birmingham from 10th – 12th
April 2018 and also The Manchester Cleaning Show at Event City, from
11th- 12th April 2018. Both shows will be of great interest to facility
managers and we have previews in the magazine.
Our cover story is from Signbox and shows the stunning internal wayfinding
and external illuminated signage that they have created and installed to the
Charter Building in Uxbridge. Take a look at page 20 to see the results of
their work.
Spring, is traditionally the time when most of us venture out in to the garden
and may start planting and preparing for a colourful summer display, in the
hope of barbeque weather. Our own personal approach to grounds
maintenance may be a bit hit and miss depending on the weather and time
available. However, in commercial premises, GM is of great importance as
the visual impact of a building’s exterior can say a lot about the company to
the visitor. We have a thought provoking article starting on page 16 from
Gritit looking at the whole industry of GM. Is it time to go back to basics and
re-evaluate the industry? Have a read and see what you think.
Our website www.practicalfm.co.uk and our Twitter account @practicalfm
are now updated daily with all of the very latest news. Do take a look
sometime if you get chance.
I hope that you enjoy the magazine. You are welcome to leave any
feedback via email to anne@practicalfm.co.uk .
