Back Cover Copy

Facility management entails far more than installing new carpet and repairing the air conditioning. With 7,000 unique job titles comprising the field, few positions require the technical, strategic, operational, and business management skills as that of facility manager.

Technology systems, disaster recovery planning, zoning compliance, furnishings, recycling programs, grounds maintenance--it all falls under the facility management umbrella. The sheer scope of duties requires a far-reaching reference for staying abreast of the latest technologies and best practices.

The Facility Management Handbook is that one essential book. Packed with examples and checklists, it arms you with the newest thinking and up-to-date procedures for successful planning, budgeting, real estate transactions, construction projects, emergency preparedness, security, operations, maintenance, communications, hiring, and more.

New to the fourth edition are insights on Building Information Modeling (BIM), contracting and project management methods, Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) requirements, new ways of working and office design trends, and sustainability reporting.

Facilities are literally the bedrock of private- and public-sector organizations. They impact the quality of life for every employee--including the ability to attract new people. Creating safe, productive, and appealing spaces is an ongoing effort requiring facility management leaders and strategic thinkers. The Facility Management Handbook gives you the expansive overview and how-to instructions to become a standout contributor in your field.
