The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM; formerly the British Institute of Facilities Management, BIFM) is a United Kingdom-based professional association for the facilities management sector.
BIFM was formed in 1993 to promote the development of facilities management as a critical, professional and strategic business discipline. In June 2018 the BIFM had around 17,000 individual members.
BIFM was a founding member of the Global Facility Management Association (Global FM), and a full member of the Construction Industry Council.
In May 2018, the BIFM proposed changing its name to the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management and attaining chartered body status. The name change was implemented in November 2018.
