The TOP 10 Things ALL Facility Owners Need to Know – Life-cycle Management of the Built Environment –

Building Information Management

Many/most Owners do not have the knowledge, capability, or organizational buy-in to support life-cycle management of the built environment. Far too often focus is upon first-costs vs. life-cycle costs. Remember… the built environment is critical to your organization. Communicate that fact, and the associated major benefits of a life-cycle approach, or you aren’t doing your job!
