Part of the Macmillan Building and Surveying Series book series (BASS)


Anybody picking up a building or property journal could be excused for thinking that facilities management is a new profession, such is the increasing prominence that it is attracting in the technical press. The many and varied functions performed are not new, but the trend towards creating an all-embracing professional who harnesses these complementary functions together into a cohesive approach to workspace management is. The role of the facilities manager is recognised as something more pro-active than that of the traditional estates manager.
