Workplace Strategies And Facilities Management: Building In Value, Rick Best, Craig Langston, Gerard De Valence Jan 2010

Workplace Strategies And Facilities Management: Building In Value, Rick Best, Craig Langston, Gerard De Valence

Craig Langston

This book provides comprehensive coverage of issues that facility managers in the property industry need to understand and apply in the pursuit of value for money over the life span of built facilities. The authors introduce the fast-growing discipline of facility management, examine the core competencies that facility managers should possess and study different contemporary drivers of change. The book emphasises the need to consider facilities management issues at the pre-design stage of the construction process, rather than only when the building is completed, in order to maximise value for money.
