Building Futures Group Announces Business Closure

Industry & Regulatory News
The Board at The Building Futures Group has announced with regret that the company has ceased trading after two successful years.

The Board at The Building Futures Group has announced that with regret that the company has ceased trading.

This difficult decision has been made following two successful years in business providing comprehensive training and high quality membership services to Britain’s building maintenance, management and services sectors.

The Building Futures Group was founded in 2013 following the merger of Asset Skills and the Facilities Management Association, who came together to form a trade association and training body dedicated to fulfilling the representative needs of the facilities management and cleaning sectors; whilst also maintaining their licence to operate as the Sector Skills Council for the industry.

During the last two years, The Building Futures Group has accomplished some outstanding achievements including securing and supporting 140 corporate members; launching Asset Skills Training – the training arm of the business – which has developed 160 courses and trained over 2,750 individuals; developing projects that engaged employers and encouraged new talent into the sector for example the Routes to Employment project; becoming the first trade body in the UK to secure contracts to deliver apprenticeships, securing £350k of funding to provide cleaning sector apprenticeships; and launching the #secretjobs campaign, which reached out to 5 million individuals to encourage them to consider a career in facilities management or cleaning.

Since its inception, The Building Futures Group has demonstrated great commitment to encouraging sustainable behaviour and promoting corporate social responsibility in the sector. Two examples include its Low Carbon Skills Challenge Project that engaged 14,000 stakeholders and leveraged £1.5 million of in-kind investment and brought forward a further £1.9 million investment in energy efficiency skills, as well as its chairing of the Dignity and Respect Task Group on behalf of the Equality and Human Rights Committee to help raise employment and working standards for cleaners.

The Building Futures Group would like to thank all of its members, employees and other stakeholders for their continued support over the last two years and hopes that the industry as a whole continues to prosper.

The Building Futures Group, Asset Skills Training & Upkeep are trading names of The Asset Trades and Training Association (ATTAS). A company Limited by Guarantee Registered in England No. 4714754. Registered office: Room 17-19 Lower Ground Floor, Salisbury House, London Wall, London, EC2M 5QQ.
