The Facility Management market in Africa is estimated to continue to grow at a CAGR of 11.2% and with Africa set to be the most urbanised continent in the world by 2030, it may be more. There is therefore the need to create systems and structures to support the expanding need for FM and growth in the African market.
The Africa FM organisation is set to ensure Africa FMs benefit from this projected growth by putting in place proper structures to support member organisations, companies and individuals practising FM in Africa.
In October 2020, FMCE Conference Led by Maria Morapedi, brought together FM Practitioners across Africa, at the end of which it was decided to create the Africa Center of Excellence in FM and drive the growth of FM in Africa.
Following the conference decision a meeting was convened and attended by – Maria Morapedi, Paul Erubami, Prof. Kathy Michell, Dr MKO Balogun, Lara Peamen representing IFMA; TC Chetty representing RICS; Wanjiru Atlanta Wamahia; Yasser Zannoun, where it was decided to expand the scope of the objective to including the creation of National FM bodies across Africa to serve as the platform for achieving the objective. At subsequent meetings, it was agreed to turn the venture into a Pan African FM Organisation with proper structure to achieve the stated objectives.
