What is Facility Management?

It is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences. Although the facility management profession has been in existence since the evolution of the office, only in the past decade has it received worldwide recognition. Business entities have come to realize that maintaining a well-managed and highly efficient facility is critical to success. Trends toward new technologies, environmental consciousness and health concerns also have had a major impact on the importance and need for these professionals in an organization.
