Knight Frank Australia, the domestic division of the world’s largest privately-owned property consultancy, have partnered with Cm3 as their online contractor management system of choice. Across their portfolio of over 2,500 assets, the company manages over 10 million square metres of property and employs a significant number of contractors for various functions.
Knight Frank is committed to implementing the most effective and efficient processes to meet their WHS obligations. By incorporating Cm3’s contractor prequalification solution into their due diligence processes, they aim to:
- Reduce their clients’ risk profiles
- Relieve Facilities Managers from time consuming administrative tasks
- Improve procurement processes
- Optimise the number of preferred contractors
The team at Cm3 is pleased to welcome Knight Frank Australia to the ecosystem. Their contractors will now be afforded a greater level of transparency and efficiency during both the WHS prequalification and operational phases of their contracts.
“Client demands, the change in the legal landscape, and the increase in WHS awareness during the pandemic identified a need to improve on our contractor prequalification process. We looked at increasing our current internal resourcing, but the challenge of finding new staff and the associated costs were somewhat prohibitive. Therefore, we needed to find a cost-effective outsourced solution delivered by an organisation with verifiable professional WHS credentials.
Cm3 are well respected within the industry and had an impressive client list. Onboarding has been painless with Cm3 providing full support and guidance along the way. We see this as key to working towards a safer future with preferred contractors, facilitated by our partnership with Cm3.”

A Successful First Rollout for Knight Frank
With a coordinated rollout of invitations and supporting materials, Knight Frank has been able to achieve a smooth uptake of Cm3 from their contractor base in the first phase of invitations. Impressively, a quarter of invited contractors registered on the first day. The process is even easier for existing contractors connected with other clients on Cm3 as they can simply accept the invite from their dashboard.
