The founding of the "IFMA Benchmarking® Research Group Chemistry, Pharma and Life Science" actually has its roots in the former professional association IFMA Deutschland e.V., which preceded the organization Rea1FM e.V.. The acronym was redesignated as "Industrial Facility Management Benchmarking" and the right to this name was secured. With the founding of the research group in 2004, the goal was set to identify the most efficient concepts related to the special requirements of constructing and operating laboratory and office buildings in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry through benchmarking. The research group has grown to include 15 participating companies. The results of this long-standing and successful cooperation are being increasingly acknowledged outside of the research group and more and more inquiries from third party companies are being made. The present article entails key fin- dings of our conducted benchmarking study.
