This unit explores the strategic management of built space in the context of workplace ecology and contemporary workspace design. Facilities management is defined as the effective alignment of built assets to support core business goals, and in this unit the 'business' of space is investigated in detail. In particular, organisational need is assessed and used to inform the extent and type of workspace provided, including an understanding of issues such as hot desking, hotelling, telecommuting, open plan office design, use of team collaboration spaces and other workplace design solutions that empower building users. Computer-aided facilities management tools and their strategic role in asset management are discussed.
Note: Assignments are individual, oral presentations are in small groups.
