Taking the fear out of Halloween for Facility Managers
Various shades of bright red and orange leaves invade our world as the air grows cooler by the day. The arrival of autumn means Halloween is approaching us. Halloween is a holiday many of us can't get enough of every year. It's all about the rush you get from being scared! But for facilities and building managers, the thought of being frightened this time of year is not fun or a rush.
These individuals are always wondering what the next issue could possibly be around the corner. A pipe bursting? HVAC not working properly? Facility Managers are always looking to stay organized be and one step ahead of potential issues. Walking around in fear of the next issue can be draining.
Below is a list of top ranking complaints that facility and building managers receive and are asked to address quickly. One way to take the fear out of a Facility Manager’s daily life is to be proactive on these points.
· It's too Hot (HVAC)
· It's too Cold (HVAC)
· Poor Indoor Air Quality (HVAC)
· Cost of facility operations
· Lack of space
· Time required to complete construction and renovation projects
· Cleanliness and image of the facility
· Inadequate parking
· Computer problems
· Excessive noise level/too noisy
Some of these issues can never be addressed without major renovations, such as lack of space or inadequate parking. Other issues, such as computer problems, may not be a facility manager’s responsibility. It is good to have a partner to help you with the issues that need to be addressed.
