Workplace Strategies and Facilities Management
Rick Best, Gerard de Valence, Craig Langston
Routledge, Aug 22, 2007 - Architecture - 410 pages
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.
