FACILITIES MANAGEMENT


The definition of Facilities Management is always evolving and many people and Organizations have different views.
The South African Facilities Management Association (SAFMA) definition of Facilities Management is “Facilities Management is an enabler of sustainable enterprise performance through the whole life management of productive workplaces and effective business support services.
The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) definition is "Facilities Management is the integration of multi-disciplinary activities within the built environment and the management of their impact upon people and the workplace".
The definition provided by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is: "The practice or coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization; integrates the principles of business administration, architecture, and the behavioral and engineering sciences."
Some educators define FM as “a strategically integrated approach to maintaining, improving and adapting the buildings and supporting services of an organization in order to create an environment that strongly supports the primary objectives of that organization .” Peter Barret 2003
A simple definition of Facilities Management is “the integrated management of the work environment and supporting services of an organization to provide an environment that enables the business to achieve its primary objective. “











Definitions and scope


  • Professional FM as an interdisciplinary business function has the objective of coordinate demand and supply of facilities and services within public and private organizations. The term “Facility” (pl. facilities) means something that is built, installed or established to serve a purpose, which, in general, is every “Tangible asset that supports an organization.”
    Examples are real estate property, buildings, technical infrastructure, (HVAC), lighting, transportation, IT-services, furniture, Custodial, grounds, and other user-specific equipment and appliances.
  • The European standard for facilities management defines it as "the integration of processes within an organization to maintain and develop the agreed services which support and improve the effectiveness of its primary activities." In April 2017 the International Organization for Standardization published the ISO 41011:2017 standard for facility management defining it as the "organizational function which integrates people, place and process within the built environment with the purpose of improving the quality of life of people and the productivity of the core business." A Management System Standard for Facilities Management has also been developed.
    • FM covers these two main areas: 'Space & Infrastructure' (such as planning, design, workplace, construction, lease, occupancy, maintenance and furniture) and 'People & organization ' (such as catering, cleaning, ICT, HR, accounting, marketing, hospitality). These two broad areas of operation are commonly referred to as "hard FM" and "soft FM". The first refers to the physical built environment with focus on (work-) space and (building-) infrastructure. The second covers the people and the organization and is related to work psychology and occupational physiology. According to the International Facility Management Association (IFMA): “FM is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates the principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences.”
