  • Occupancy and space management.
  • Employee and occupant experience.

Types of facilities management. There are two basic areas: Hard Facilities Management (Hard FM) and Soft Facilities Management (Soft FM).

  • Hard FM deals with physical assets such as plumbing, wiring, elevators, and heating and cooling.
  • Soft FM focuses on tasks performed by people such as custodial services, lease accounting, catering, security, and grounds keeping.

What is the importance of facilities management?

For people to do their best work and feel engaged in their environments, they need to be in buildings that are safe, welcoming, and efficient. Facilities management has a hand in everything that surrounds the people in facilities and on the grounds. Where they work, play, learn, and live should be comfortable, productive, and sustainable.
