  • Overview

    Introduction
    This subject relates to the stewardship of an organisation's infrastructure (premises and services) to facilitate and accommodate its activities, commercial or sporting. Asset and facilities managers are today challenged not only to ensure infrastructure is aligned with the goals of the organisation, but also to wider social agenda such as sustainability and climate change adaptation. A functional approach through case studies is taken to introduce tools and techniques for the practical operation and value maintenance of building assets. The role of technology in managing physical assets is also explored.
