About this item

The primary role of facility managers is to manage/oversee an operating facility. To do this, facility managers must have a working knowledge of building systems, structure, interiors and exteriors and grounds so the facility and all of its required systems function efficiently, reliably, safely, securely and in a manner consistent with existing regulations and standards. In addition, the various aspects of operations and maintenance (O&M) are constantly changing due to wear or deterioration, new regulations or requirements, operational modifications, occupant expectations, and many other individual but interrelated circumstances. Managing a facility means continually managing change.
