Facilities Management is a service category with large breadth and scope as it involves a serious number of variables to manage varying both in type and complexity depending on the sector and usage scenario a facility is designed to serve. Space management, preventive and regular maintenance of buildings or equipment, service subcontractor’s management, supply chain, helpdesk and cleaning services are only a limited number of tasks lying within the area of responsibilities of the Facilities Manager which make their work complex and personnel intensive.
