Reader discount gives 20 percent off FM Handbook

06 May 2009

Publishers of the newly released fourth edition of Facilities Management Handbook have offered a special price for readers of PFM and FM Report of 20% off the £49.99 cover price, plus free postage and packing.

At just £39.99, this fourth edition is worth every penny for over 400 pages of close packed but easy to find vital information for FMs at all levels and in all sectors. Edited by Frank Booty, an freelance journalist who specialises in FM and IT issues and is a frequent contributor to PFM, the fouth edition updates third edition published in 2006.

Three years is a long time in FM and many sections have been completely revised, particularly the chapters on complying with health and safety, property and employment law. Other information on workplace facilities has been brought completely up-to-date and is in line with legal compliance and strategic policies. The result is a book that is a reliable and accurate overview of the role of today’s FM.

The third edition has served the FM sector very well. Independent reader comments include “We run our company using this book” , “Our sixth form college has gained much, not only in applying it for its own use, but also to show students a career path” and “There’s something of value for everyone involved in FM in this book”.

“FMs are indeed the stewards of the built environment,” comment Frank Booty to PFM. “Information is presented in a clear and logical way, offering easy-to-find advice and best practice information that is vital in guaranteeing the safe, efficient and cost-effective running of any facilities function.”

In the three years since the last edition the FM sector has been subject to important changes in the law on waste and recycling, energy management, health and safety and more, to such an extent that few FM professional can afford to be out of date. More recently, the economic downturn has put pressure on all organisations, and placed a bright focus on property occupied and support services costs. FMs at all levels need to have a ‘Bible’ like this ready to hand to support them in their work.
