Landmark Global Facilities Management debuts to offer upscale real estate services


It was an exciting moment at the weekend as Landmark Global Facilities Management Limited was launched into the property market to offer integrated, upscale and value-adding  real estate services.

An integrated facilities management company set up as a joint venture partnership between Landmark Group and Global Property and Facilities International Limited (Global PFI), the new company is coming into the real estate space with uncommon experiences from diverse backgrounds.

Landmark is an African focused real estate development and consulting business provider with established offices across five African countries. The Group has 17 years’ experience delivering bespoke office solutions to multinationals around the world and 10 years’ experience in the local market.

Global PFI, on the other hand, is a leading and pioneering facilities management company with expertise in  facilities management, property management and infrastructure operations and management services in Nigeria since 2000. It has operations across the country providing services to multi-national clients.

In a statement jointly signed by MKO Balogun and Paul Onwuanibe, the CEOs of  Global PFI and Landmark Group respectively, the CEOs explained that the objective of the joint venture was to marry their respective strong capabilities to provide multi-national and domestic clients with a world class business environment to conduct business.

“At Landmark, we understand the needs of the Lagos business community and having provided flexible office accommodation and business services for some of the world’s largest companies in Africa for over 17 years, we believe it’s time to up the game in Nigeria’s property scene with our new Tower,” Onwuanibe, told BusinessDay in reference to the 10-floor office building in Oniru, Lagos.

Balogun understands the Nigerian business environment well, noting that “when you start out and want to do it alone, you will be having challenges, but when you bring in other people into it, they will not only share your risk but also help to strengthen the organization and reposition it on regular basis.”

According to him, Global PFI has been evolving on a regular basis, believing that “this is a business where we don’t assume we have reached where we are supposed to be. We keep challenging and reinventing ourselves; we keep expanding the opportunities and potentials that we have and this is the reason we have ensured that we have more people in the business”.
