The Building Futures Group has announced that it is to cease trading, just two years after it was set up.
The group, which originated from a merger between the Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA), the Facilities Management Association (FMA) and training body Asset Skills, was founded in 2013.
The group provided training and membership services to the building maintenance, management and services sectors in the UK.
The CSSA voted to leave the group in January 2015.
The BIFM, which was initially involved in merger discussions, withdrew its participation in August 2013, prior to the group being founded.
In a statement, the Building Futures Group said it “would like to thank all of its members, employees and other stakeholders for their continued support over the last two years”, and hopes that “the industry as a whole continues to prosper”.
