About This Book

The wide-ranging umbrella of facility management covers everything from technology systems to disaster recover planning to zoning compliance…and that's just getting started.

Facilities management is a multidisciplinary function that requires a deep knowledge of the entire business and physical planning cycle. Undoubtedly, the sheer scope of duties requires a far-reaching reference for staying abreast of the latest innovations and best practices. The Facility Management Handbook is the answer.

This guide shares insightful overviews, case studies, and practical guidelines that pave the way for successful planning, budgeting, real estate transactions, construction, emergency preparedness, security, operations, maintenance, and more.

The thoroughly revised fourth edition examines cutting-edge technologies and includes new information on:

  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Contracting and project management methods
  • FASB and IASB requirements
  • Distributed working
  • Sustainability reporting and more

The Facility Management Handbook is the one-stop resource every facility manager must have to master a broad scope of duties while staying current on innovations and best practices.
