It explains the facilities manager s role in incorporating sustainability into the whole life-cycle of a building from initial briefing to final disposal. The book takes a structured approach: masterplanning and real estate (acquisitions and disposals) design construction and commissioning refurbishment, fit-out and project management maintenance operation occupant satisfaction. Sustainable Practice for the Facilities Manager fills a the gap between the policy-level sustainability books and the detailed technical documents by focusing on the what and how of planning and implementing sound environmental management practices in the context of FM operations. It covers policy and trends on global, European and UK levels affecting businesses; compliance requirements for organisations - including some sector-specific areas; and best practice, with good and bad case studies showing the business benefits of incorporating sustainable practice into day-to-day activities.
