About The Facility Management Handbook
When a company's facilities are intelligently, cohesively managed -- rather than just haphazardly operated -- the results go straight to the bottom line. And given the high costs associated with facilities, the savings that good management brings are significant.

Now completely revised and updated, this bestseller covers the entire facility management arena, including:

** strategic facility business planning
** leadership
** managing the design process
** managing facility finances
** leasing
** operations, maintenance, and repair
** benchmarking, cost savings/avoidances, and more.
