FM Consultants Podcast 2015-12 – Discussion by Jon Martens (USA), Stephen O. Jagun (Nigeria), Chris Payne (UK) & David Reynolds (USA) on “Eko Atlantic City”

Recorded on: June 9th, 2015

In this podcast, we hear from Nigeria, one of a number of nations on the African continent where modern cities are emerging in very large-scale projects. Not all have been successful so far. Several factors of importance to FM distinguish this project, called Eko Atlantic City. Prominent are FM and occupant involvement in detailed plans and specifications, and emphasis on sustainability, as that concept is now understood: the triple bottom line.

The Lagos IFMA chapter is twenty years strong. Its members keep up to date through training and work experience. The panelists are intensively involved in the Chapter. Stephen Ola. Jagun, CFM, of Jagun Associates in Lagos, Nigeria, is a property development and real estate expert. He is also a pastor with strong community connections. Jon Martens CFM and IFMA Fellow, of Innovative Facility Solutions in Santa Rosa, California, in the U.S., has partnered with Stephen in the project in focus today. They take an FM viewpoint toward Eko Atlantic City, an entirely new, privately financed development, emerging on reclaimed land adjoining Victoria Island in Lagos.

This podcast follows a much more extensive FMCC webinar, presented by the same panel on May 4 of 2015.


1. Have there been any steps taken to identify, recruit and train the facilities management personnel that will be required?
2. How does the Eko Atlantic planning process include occupant input while the city is not yet built?

David Reynolds, MS, FMP, CFM

David Reynolds is an FM consultant based in Mississippi, in the U.S. His involvement in FM arose out of work in engineering, operations, and related information technology. He has a lifelong interest in how people experience the built environment. He began consulting in offshore oil field and inland marine transportation during the 1990s, building teams that streamlined and transformed production processes. He has continued in technical operations and project management roles since, concentrating exclusively in FM since joining IFMA in 2002. He earned the CFM in 2014.

Helping FMs to gauge, interpret, and take action in order to make processes reliable, productive, and resilient is the mission of FM-CONSULT-CREATE, his consultancy.
He focuses on FM as organizations adopt asset management principles and practices following ISO 55000, where clear, visible, interactive, maintainable, process and risk models, data, and measurements can better frame FM in organizational strategies and objectives.
