HPS Services Group has acquired specialist hard FM provider, FMI Services.
Established in 2013, HPS is a UK national specialist in high end facility services for the residential, educational and commercial property sectors.
FMI specialises in the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a vast array of systems. The business has over 20 years’ experience in service delivery and the delivery of technical support from design to construction and installations and hold many accreditations and memberships, including the Safe Contractor scheme.
According to HPS, the acquisition of FMI will enable the business to provide a comprehensive network of integrated national services that will further support its customers’ hard and soft FM needs.
HPS Group Managing Director, Oliver Ringsby-Burgess, commented: “We’re incredibly excited to see FMI join the HPS Group, and it will significantly expand our growing hard FM and projects capability across the UK. More than this, the FMI team are a wonderful cultural fit for HPS and share our core belief that everyone deserves a fantastic place to live, learn, work, and stay.”
As workplaces open up and restrictions lift the role of the FM has become more important than ever.
The challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic are now providing a valuable opportunity for FMs to demonstrate their skills and adaptability. Whilst on a practical level FMs are responsible for making buildings safe and comfortable, they are also crucial in attracting people back to the office.

Zip has published a white paper which looks at each one, suggesting ways that facilities managers can tackle the complexities and pace of a return to the workplace, whilst demonstrating clear and effective leadership along the way.
