This is a virtual-live-instructor-led course in partnership with BOMA New York. This course runs every Thursday from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm beginning October 20 and running through December 1, 2022

Facilities Planning and Project Management stress that technical skills are important, but strategy, leadership, and direction will contribute more to the success of your facilities projects than logistical prowess. You will learn to develop strategic facilities plans, plan facilities projects, and effectively implement and evaluate projects.

You will also understand the why and the how of communicating with those employees directly affected by facilities projects, and integrating them into the strategic process. To accomplish this, and to communicate with architects, designers, and general contractors, you will learn the basic symbols and tools you will need to read architectural drawings. The set of drawings included with this coursebook will be used in the course, relating course key concepts to the master case study, a facilities project for a hypothetical company, which is presented throughout the course.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to: 

  • Execute post-occupancy evaluations using facilities annual reports
  • Organize and plan a successful facilities project
  • Assemble a project team
  • Use best practices to determine facility needs
  • Distinguish among the roles that each employee and/or contractor has in managing a facility
  • Grow and implement project management skill sets
