Space planning and management guide revision

02 June 2017

An updated version of the Space Planning and Management Good Practice Guide has been published by BIFM.

It is designed to provide practical advice on tools and techniques that can be used when planning and managing spaces.

It includes clear illustrations of the processes involved to enable FMs "to set overarching space management strategies for their organisation" said the statement.

Research and information manager Peter Brogan said effective space planning and management "has a major impact" on each organisation's ability "to meet business needs, establish brand and organisational culture, achieve sustainability targets and enhance user comfort".

He said this can also assist FMs in planning and managing change within facilities and support business objectives.

Areas covered within the guide include space demands, strategy and standards, programming and management projects, along with identification of the technologies available to assist with these tasks.

The updated version has been created by original author, Alexi Marmot Associates director Joanna Eley.

It is free to BIFM members and available to non-members for £19.99.
