The award, given on behalf of the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA), was bestowed as part of the 2015 World FM Day, an international celebration of facilities management, which was held on June 10 in London.

The Global FM awards focus on promoting the strategic value and progression of facilities management, and assess innovation, advancement of facilities management, corporate outcomes, contribution to Global FM’s mission, and leadership in facilities management operations.

During the 2007-08 fiscal year, the Facilities Department at The Westminster Schools recognized the rising cost of water and other utilities and initiated a series of campus improvement projects, including the development of a campus retention pond and ongoing sustainability audits, at a cost of approximately $383,000.

The energy audit and all subsequent improvement projects over the last seven years have resulted in approximately $1.1 million of total savings.

“It is an honor for Westminster to be recognized as an industry leader in facilities management and sustainability,” said William Broome, Director of Facilities at The Westminster Schools. “We are immensely grateful for the support and guidance from Global FM, and we look forward to continuing to enhance the sustainability of our campus and our School.”
