The traditional design/construction process often leaves facility managers out in the cold and the results are less than impressive. New and remodeled facilities that don't address operational and maintenance needs and sometimes neglect even the most basic considerations: the placement of light bulbs that require scissor lifts to change and no storage area in the building for a scissor lift; a maintenance closet too small to accommodate both staff and equipment, forcing staff to lie down and scoot on the floor to reach a calibration valve; or a building envelope designed to last 100 years but made of materials that block cell phone reception in the building.
If these examples sound familiar, it's not surprising. Operating a building on a day-to-day basis gives facility managers insights into what works and how, and these are extremely important messages for a project team to have. For facilities to be successful, facility managers need to be involved early in the design/construction process.
