INTRODUCTION

Facilities management is one of the fastest growing professions in the UK. Facilities managers are responsible for many of the buildings and services which support businesses and other types of organisation.

FACILITATE MANAGEMENT.

"A profession that encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality of the built environment by integrating people, place, processes and technology." Another broader definition provided by IFMA is: "The practice or coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization; integrates the principles of business administration, architecture, and the behavioural and engineering sciences." The British Institute of Facilities Management has formally adopted the CEN definition but also offers a slightly simpler description: "Facilities management is the integration of multi-disciplinary activities within the built environment and the management of their impact upon people and the workplace".
