Telereal Trillium and its service partner Amaryllis have been shortlisted in the ‘Partners in Sustainability’ category for this year's PFM, Premises and Facilities Management Awards 2015.
The PFM Awards 2015, now in its 22nd year, is the most sought after Awards in the facilities management sector. It recognises best practice in partnering in facilities management and support services between service suppliers and their clients, as well as the skills and enterprise of people engaged in this sector.
Martin Brittain, Head of Workspace and Churn at Telereal Trillium said: “Our entry is based on our successful and sustained partnership with Amaryllis on the Department for Work and Pensions contract. This is fantastic recognition of the very close and bespoke relationship we have with Amaryllis and we are delighted to be a finalist for this award.”
Since 2000, Telereal Trillium and Amaryllis have worked together to develop sustainable furniture and equipment solutions for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) estate by seeking to repair or provide reused, ‘fit-for-purpose’ items, instead of purchasing new ones. In 2014, the partnership undertook a major DWP programme for the Job Centre Plus sites, to introduce desks for job seekers with computers and free internet access in anticipation of the new Universal Credit roll-out. Telereal Trillium and Amaryllis proposed an innovative solution for the digital roll-out programme by combining the remodelling and reuse of redundant desks from vacated DWP office buildings, and involving ‘social giving’ initiatives for the manufacture of any additional requirements.
There are two other finalists in the category:
- Carillion with British Gas
- British Library with Emprise Services
The winners will be announced in November.
