New issue of FMJ magazine: Optimizing Operations

March 21, 2017

It’s often said that improving building operations takes a ground-up approach. Enhancing performance at the individual, organization or industry level requires the same thoroughness to — hopefully — get processes right from the start.

It’s this attention to foundational concerns that inspired the March/April 2017 issue of FMJ. With articles spanning from design-stage FM considerations to total cost of ownership, this issue focuses on methods to position FM as a key decision-making role during design, construction and throughout the life cycle of the facility.

Articles include insights on ​operations and maintenance; contracts, reporting and benchmarking; pest mitigation; capital planning and asset management.
