People generally agree that effective facility management is essential for organizations to work well. The fourth edition of Total Facility Management explains what facility management means to owners, operators, tenants, facility managers, and professional advisors. It also advises on how facilities can be better managed from several different points of view. It combines the best practices already in place, defines and develops new areas, and shows how facility management can grow.
Several national and international standards now help the body of knowledge about facility management. None of these standards existed when earlier editions of the book were written. This new edition’s structure and content have been changed to align with these standards and give readers and their organizations a complete look at the subject. More attention has been paid to facility planning, especially the briefing stage in the design of a new or remodeled facility, design for operability, stakeholder management, outsourcing, procurement, transition, performance management, environmental management, sustainability, maintenance management, information management, and building information modeling (BIM). The book emphasizes the connections between facility management and an organization’s business goals.
This fourth edition is a valuable and thought-provoking mix of the theory and practice of facility management. It will be read all over the world.
