Dubai, October 6, 2023 – Kaizen Asset Management Services (Kaizen AMS) is delighted to announce its recent recognition as the ‘Property Management Company of the Year’ at the esteemed Smart Built Environment Awards 2023, held on October 5, 2023, at the Park Hyatt, Dubai. This accolade further solidifies Kaizen’s enduring legacy of excellence at the Smart Built Environment Awards and underscores its robust commitment towards environmental sustainability and the safety and well-being of the UAE residents.
The Smart Built Environment Awards serve as a platform to acknowledge companies within the built environment for their outstanding efforts and practices in enhancing communities’ well-being, advancing smart city initiatives, and promoting sustainability. The awards recognize excellence in four major areas of real estate: Property Management, Community Management, Facilities Management, and PropTech. The two-day forum features keynote speeches, panel discussions, presentations, and workshops, addressing key issues and trends driving real estate development and management in the Middle East.
Kaizen AMS clinched awards in three prominent categories: ‘Property Management Company of the Year,’ ‘Sustainable Community Award,’ and ‘Partnership Award – PropTech’ in collaboration with Socienta.
In the ‘Property Management Company of the Year’ category, Kaizen AMS emerged victorious due to its consistent investment in pioneering technologies, which have been implemented across its portfolio of 130+ managed communities in Dubai. These innovations have resulted in reduced operational costs, minimized energy and water consumption, enhanced resident satisfaction scores, and the creation of memorable experiences for over 40,000 residents. This recognition came after competing against industry giants such as Asteco, Aeon & Trisl, Banke International Properties, and Metropolitan Group.
The ‘Sustainable Community Award,’ introduced for the first time at the Smart Built Environment Awards, acknowledged Kaizen AMS for its exceptional dedication to sustainable building projects and its positive impact on occupant well-being and the environment in 2022. This recognition holds special significance as it aligns with UAE President HH Sheikh Mohd. Bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s declaration of ‘2023 as the Year of Sustainability’. Kaizen AMS faced stiff competition from Ejadah, LOAMS, Provis, and Sharjah Sustainable City in this category.
Furthermore, Kaizen AMS was honoured with the ‘Partnership Award – PropTech’ for its collaborative work with its technology partner – Socienta in driving digital transformation within Dubai’s real estate sector and addressing complex industry challenges with cutting-edge technology and expertise.
Notably, Kaizen AMS’ experienced Facility Manager, Mr. Anas Gahshan, was a Runner-up in the ‘Next-gen Personality of the Year’ category, recognizing his outstanding contributions to the built environment and his promising future as an industry leader.
Speaking on this occasion, Kaizen AMS’ Founder and CEO, Mr. Fadi Nwilati, stated, “Yet again, we Kaizeners have proven that people with great passion can make the impossible happen. Our monumental success is attributed to our unwavering focus on creating memorable experiences, deploying innovative property technologies to reduce energy consumption and operational costs, and launching sustainability initiatives to mitigate our environmental impact.”
