APSE Soft Facilities Management Innovation Awards

APSE are delighted to present the winners of our inaugural Soft FM Innovation Awards; celebrating outstanding local councils that use innovative ideas and solutions to tackle the current challenges facing their frontline soft facilities management services.

APSE National Chair Cllr Mark Pengelly said, "These awards have been extremely competitive, with organisations taking part from across the UK. Only the best submissions have been shortlisted in each category, and we would like to take this opportunity to commend those shortlisted for reaching the finals of this year’s awards. To the winners, I would like to extend my congratulations for their tremendous work. They are a credit to their councils and their local communities."
