Partner Engineering and Science, Inc., (Partner) is pleased to welcome Jeff Briggs to its MEP Solutions Practice, part of its Integrated Facilities Solutions Group.
Briggs, a 30 year plus veteran of the facilities management industry, will serve as a Senior Project Engineer and Assessor out of Partner’s Houston office. Leveraging his client-side experience, as well as his tenure with CBRE’s Global Workforce Solutions (GWS) as an FM Director, Briggs will support Partner’s corporate occupier clients and MEP team under Nate Benton.
Regarding his approach to Integrated Facility Solutions (IFS), Briggs says, “Because I’ve spent decades on the operational side of facility management, I recognize the needs and concerns of corporate occupiers and the facility managers tasked with protecting and managing corporate real estate assets. I’ve been in the owners’ shoes as well, so I know it’s about protecting the value of those assets for the long run—not just in terms of the real estate markets, but within the client’s respective industries. That perspective is always in the forefront of my mind, when driving the processes and projects in order to keep a laser focus on protecting our clients’ assets and optimizing their value. Their success is Key for our success.
An expert in facilities operations, Briggs has directed Integrated Facility Management Solutions for Fortune 100 companies including BP, Siemens, Walmart, and Chevron. He had been recognized with awards for his track record of reducing costs, Lean Six Sigma standardization, reliability, sustainability, and implementing smart FM technologies. Among his most notable projects, Briggs led one of the largest planned outages in the City of Houston in 2008 comprised of a 48-hour preventive maintenance MEP turn-around for BP’s Global headquarters 40-story high rise office building, that included multiple skilled trades and project managers. Briggs also won an account operational excellence award for driving over $22MM of operational cost savings over a 5-year period for Siemens in 2011.
Nate Benton, Managing Director of Partner’s MEP Solutions practice, says, “Jeff is a heavy hitter who is known in the FM industry for handling large portfolios and complex projects. His expertise and results-oriented approach will be invaluable to our clients. He knows the process side, the operations side, and he gets the technology too—so he’ll help us deliver the data and integrated analysis that our clients need to meet their objectives.”
