David Ascott David Ascott

UK facilities management has seen tremendous activity in the past seven years, as our latest deals infographic shows.

Our analysis shows that between 2007 and 2013 a total of 727 FM deals completed reaching disclosed deal values of more than £14 billion.

Key sub-sectors of interest have been mechanical and electrical, maintenance and fit-out, and security with Hard FM (hard facilities management – generally, maintenance of mechanical, electrical, fabric and landscape assets) being the most active category overall.

Despite a recent slowdown in market activity – just 16 deals were recorded in the first quarter of 2014 versus 19 the quarter before – significant deals continue to emerge in facility management, such as Interserve’s £250 million acquisition of IFS (Initial Facilities) from Rentokil.
