Well, it's been a busy couple of weeks so, where to begin? I guess I should start with my recent visit to Iceland where we received some additional training on the new version of MainManager.

As well as our own training we discussed joint development and partnership opportunities around the world and across a number of subjects. The current focus is obviously within the BIM4FM arena where new functionality is meeting innovative requirements from prospective clients. We are already benefiting from MainManager's ability to integrate BIM, GIS and traditional 2D floorplans although the next version will take this interactivity to a whole new level.
During the visit we were also able to sign off a new agreement for partners in Malta and the UAE which will see MainManager available in those markets for 2019 onwards. FM180 and FMCore have a long history and it is with some satisfaction that we were able to facilitiate them bringing MainManager to their clients.

the Maltese Agreement for FMCore
Earlier in 2018 we had worked with FMCore to deliver the agreement across the UAE and look forward to some very interesting projects in the Dubai and Ahbu Dhabi region in the coming months.

Prior to the visit to Iceland we had successfully completed the delivery of MainManager to Slough Borough Council's flagship leisure facility - Slough Centre Leisure. The project see's the Leisure portfolio fully utilising the 3D design and associated BIM models and O&M data within an integrated FM platform.
At the official opening on the 15th March we were able to demonstrate the application to dignitaries and senior members of Slough Borough Council as well as the wider Morgan Sindall project team. The Centre opened to the public on the 25th March.

2019 looks to be a busy year not just for BIM and FM generally but also for FM180 as we add Workplace to our portfolio of services. More about this in due course from Will Easton, our new Head of Workplace.
For now, I will leave you with a couple of images from opposite sides of the globe which I hope will show the global reach of BIM and FM180 in delivering solutions to our clients.
We look forward to speaking to you during the year to help with your BIM, FM and Workplace requirements!
