1 - 2 weeks availability


From BIM (building information modeling) to RFID (radio frequency identification) to BAS (building automation and control systems), facility managers of today's commercial buildings are often asked to work with a variety of technologies without any experience in IT. This new book is a welcome primer for facility managers and engineers. Each chapter covers a different technology and includes specific and helpful case studies. Authored by the International Facility Management Association (IMFA), this unique resource is also a practical textbook for candidates studying for IFMA certification.
