Wednesday 14 October
Panel Discussion: FM and integration in the design process
1pm-2pm Seminar Series

Of the all the phases of a building’s life cycle, the operational phase carries the highest financial cost to the building owner and/or occupier. Yet there are many examples of decisions made during the design and construction phases that result in costly operational and maintenance challenges.

With the objective of identifying ways in which the management and operation of buildings can better influence these early phases, this session presents the audience with the opportunity to hear what key stakeholders have to say, to direct questions to the panel members and to share their experiences of good and not so good building design.
