Course description

This course introduces an overview of facilities management principles and approaches to measure a building’s performance. Utilizing standards developed to measure space, facility serviceability and benchmarking are key practice areas of study. An individual’s perception of a building is also considered. This is viewed by human physiology, environmental psychology and psychosocial as factors that have an effect on the performance of a facility to support its comfort and workplace goals. These types of building and human measures lead to solutions for improved design and work performance.
