BESA teams up with TEMA

The Technology Enabled Maintenance Association (TEMA) is partnering with the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) to help accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies by the building maintenance sector. 

TEMA will work closely with BESA’s specialist Service & Facilities group, which amongst other things, is responsible for the widely used industry best practice facilities management tool SFG20. It will provide a forum for the dissemination of knowledge and help to improve understanding of the latest technologies available to service and maintenance specialists across the sector. 

The two bodies see particular opportunities to drive innovation in the fast growing areas of ventilation hygiene and indoor air quality (IAQ) both of which are seen as of significant strategic importance as buildings begin to re-open after the Covid-19 lockdown period. 

“This is a very exciting moment for both bodies,” said BESA’s membership director Jason Hemingway. “Having a single, focused forum like this will add a further dimension to our already highly experienced specialist group and opens up all sorts of opportunities across the world of FM. 

“It is particularly timely in light of the huge changes in the building engineering sector as we prepare to play our part in the UK economic recovery. The Prime Minister is calling for us to ‘build, build, build’, but it will be equally important to maintain, repair and improve the existing built environment. TEMA will help BESA members bring the latest cutting edge technology and expertise to bear on that task,” added Mr Hemingway. 

TEMA’s chairman Mike Green described partnering with BESA as “the pinnacle of our 55 year history”.  

“We are setting a new course it is an exciting development. The Committee and I look forward to working with the BESA team,” he said.
