Employer Description

The company has been in operation since 2002, and developed organically as an extension to the many other building and property related services already on offer from Mace. The company had been providing facilities management services since the mid-1990's, often in support of significant construction projects. For instance, whilst building the new headquarters for British Airways at Waterside, we were challenged to help with the mobilisation of the support services required to manage this significant facility.

Following the success of this project, other clients sought to use our expertise to help with a variety of operational issues related to the management of property. It was clear that the market was ready for a new type of facilities management and Macro was created, bringing together the experience and track record of both Mace and an industry leading management team.

Macro quickly established its reputation with a number of keynote projects and through strategic acquisition of a number of regional facilities management businesses including FM24 in London, Maxim in the North of England and FIMS in Scotland.

Today Macro is operational on 4 continents and provides strategic and tactical facilities management services on projects as diverse as Invesco' s property portfolio, to running the operation of the Emirates Air Line.
