Overview

Sustainable Facility Management: Operational Strategies for Today / Edition 1

For diverse courses in facilities management and sustainability, including capstone courses in facility management degree programs; and for certificate programs in sustainable management.

This all-encompassing text thoroughly illuminates the methods, “how-to” skills, equipment, and best practices of modern facility management. Emphasizing practical operational aspects of sustainable facility management, Sustainable Facility Management covers many topics that are absolutely essential to sustainability -- some of them covered in no other text. Embracing multiple subject areas, it can easily be used as the main text for a capstone course of a facility management degree program. Topics covered include: organizational structure; cultural issues associated with property/facility management; career opportunities; financial, construction, and emergency management; environmental issues; HVAC, energy, and water management; green building; strategic management, and more. Throughout, chapter questions, assignments, photos, and diagrams help students deepen their understanding. These are complemented by many first-hand insights about effective facility management.

About the Author

John P. Fennimore has followed a broad and robust career path that includes engineering, military duty, seamanship, commercial property management, and education. He found many similarities between military duty, ship management, and facility management. All of his experiences culminated in the writing of this textbook.

John began his professional career after receiving a bachelor of engineering degree in marine engineering from SUNY Maritime College, followed by a commission as ensign in the USNR. Subsequently, John worked for several years as chief engineering officer aboard commercial ships plying the Great Lakes. During the height of the cold war, he provided his marine engineering expertise to the U.S. government by traveling overseas to manage the in-port maintenance work aboard high technology, submarine surveillance vessels.

Returning home, John then became director of facilities at Ramapo State College of New Jersey and later at Alverno College in Wisconsin. Opportunity for personal development presented itself again in the form of commercial property management. John took on the task of managing the facility operation of a portfolio of high-rise office, shopping centers, and industrial properties for the RREEF Funds. Seeking continued professional and personal growth, John obtained a state license as professional engineer and finally a master’s degree in facility management from Leeds Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom. These achievements led to positions as a facilities engineering consultant in the field and also as a lecturer at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Today, the author instructs a program of facilities maintenance technology at Waukesha County Technical College.
