World Security, Bee'ah, Mace Macro scoop awards
Repeat wins for three companies in same categories as last year
It was a night of consecutive wins at the Facilities Management Middle East Awards, with three companies securing repeat wins in the same categories as last year.
Mace Macro picked up the FM Consultancy Award for the fifth year in a row, while World Security and Bee’ah picked up the awards for Security Company of the Year and; Sanitation and Waste Management Company of the Year, respectively, for a second year running.
“Obviously it’s fantastic because it’s the fifth year running," said Managing Director, Mace Macro International, Bill Heath.
"We didn’t think we’d get it five times in a row but we have so it’s thanks to the hard work of the staff, the clients that have been engaged with us and the projects we work on. We don’t take things complacently and we want to get better and better and better and hopefully it’ll be six in a row next year."
The awards were among 14 presented on the night to honour, reward and recognise the achievements of the FM industry over the last year.
Judges said two-time winner Bee’ah had taken significant steps over the last year to present a comprehensive approach to waste management. This included the introduction of a waste disposal site and a facility for the segregation of waste into recyclables, which includes one of the busiest construction and demolition facilities in the world.
Alongside this, the company brought recycling to public-level, initiating campaigns and incentives for recycling at street-level.
“Bee'ah has done a lot of work in the last two years. Winning the award twice proves we are on the right track. We have set targets for 2015 for zero waste landfill. Nobody has set such a target,said Khaled Al Huraimel, CEO, Bee’ah.
Gold sponsor of the event, World Security, was once again named Security Company of the Year with judges saying they could see clear evidence of the company’s ability to deliver quality services to a portfolio of high-end clients that was ‘quite literally’ bursting at the seams.
World Security trains security staff to Dubai Police Standards and last month, won a contract to offer training provisions to Hawk Security Guards.
“We’ve done a lot of hard work during the year" said Mahmood Amin, CEO, World Security.
"World Security is proud to be the best company in the seven cities of the UAE and amongst its competitors. I feel proud for all of them [security teams]. The guards should be especially proud that we are the best security facility company for the year, meaning [they] are [...] part of an important company," he added.
