2. Facilities Management (Fm) Practice And Challenges
Facilities Management is a multi-disciplinary field encompassing multi-disciplines to ensure the functionality of built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology (Cotts et al., 2009). In scenarios such as major relocation of organisations into new buildings, FM for the building lifecycle is the key aspects that should be conducted effectively and efficiently (Nazali et al., 2009). However, there are key challenges in the current practice such as building operational life cycle management, some of which revolves around information collection retrieval and sharing (Cardellino & Finch, 2006). The challenges in FM are revealed more when the information exchange challenges are experienced during design/construction are multiplied across the lifecycle of a facility (Jordani, 2010).
