The Basics of Facilities Management: Why does It Matter?

Facilities management helps ensure the functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of buildings and grounds, infrastructure, and real estate

Defining Facilities Management

Facilities management can be defined as the tools and services that support the functionality, safety, and sustainability of buildings, grounds, infrastructure, and real estate.

Facilities management includes:

  • Lease management, including lease administration and accounting
  • Capital project planning and management
  • Maintenance and operations
  • Energy management
  • Occupancy and space management
  • Employee and occupant experience
  • Emergency management and business continuity
  • Real estate management

Types of Facilities Management

There are two basic areas: Hard Facilities Management (Hard FM) and Soft Facilities Management (Soft FM).

Hard FM

This deals with physical assets such as plumbing, wiring, elevators, and heating and cooling.

Soft FM

This focuses on tasks performed by people such as custodial services, lease accounting, catering, security, and groundskeeping.
