We Serve as the Resource and Representative for Facility Management.

Facility management is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates the principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences.

Facility professionals have numerous job responsibilities. Major functions include: developing corporate facilities policies and long-range facility plans; coordinating construction; renovation and relocation projects; purchasing furnishings; equipment and outside facility services; supervising building operations; maintenance and engineering; and managing real estate procurement and disposal.
