Plastic Surgeon, the leading FM and construction industry repair specialist, announced today that they have won the prestigious BIFM Award for the ‘Innovation in Products’ category.
The 2011 Awards, organised by BIFM and sponsored by Mace are designed to celebrate the increasingly strategic profile of Facilities Management by highlighting the key role it plays in the success of public and private sector organisations.
Rob Mouser, Managing Director of Plastic Surgeon said:”We are thrilled to have won such a prestigious industry award. By taking on the wear and tear and damage inevitably caused by building occupants, and repairing and maintaining all aspects of buildings, our teams work to avoid the need to replace damaged items, thereby reducing the huge volume of material sent to landfill every week.”
He went on to say: “Sustainability is top of the FM agenda at present. Our VisibilITy online reporting system provides comprehensive data, including detailed statistics on landfill savings, cost per repair and property and site specific information for our FM clients. We designed the system to give our customers the fine detail on all their building repair projects – It’s ideal for them to manage their waste programmes.”
The BIFM judges stated that Plastic Surgeon’s innovation is a: “Simple concept of cosmetic repairs and fine finishing services, developed from the automotive industry and introduced into the service sector. Plastic Surgeon have innovatively taken these products and developed it into a market leading customer offer. The range is endless, the ability to effect cosmetic repairs on virtually any product in the built environment. The potential is huge, the benefits likewise both in terms of cost, minimising disruption, rapid respond and fix times and environmental benefits…. “don’t skip it… fix it !”. Underpinning all of this is a fantastic customer support model creating a mobile repair solution which models perfectly into industry ways of working. A truly innovative solution which has massive potential.
