One Week before FMOC Holds Webinar on Transitioning New Facilities


(WASHINGTON, DC) – (RealEstateRama) — There’s still time to register for a new webinar hosted by the National Institute of Building Sciences Facility Maintenance and Operations Committee (FMOC). But don’t wait too long. The one-hour webinar, Transitioning a New Facility from Construction to Operations and Asset Management, will be held Friday, October 5, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm ET.


Bringing a new facility to life and integrating it with an existing asset portfolio can be a stressful endeavor. The receiving organization is expected to operate, manage and maintain the building with finite resources, yet the owner may be faced with a newly constructed facility that underperforms, requires unplanned downtime or additional rework, or provides a lesser occupant or visitor experience. This webinar provides guidance on how to make that transition as successful as possible.

Ensuring an opening day that delivers stable and reliable building performance is dependent on three key components: facility readiness, people readiness and information readiness. During the webinar, FMOC Chair Casey Martin, AIA, AICP, will address ways to plan in advance to make facility handover more predictable.

A subject matter expert, Martin works in the consulting practice at Jacobs Engineering delivering facility and asset management strategies. In this role, she consults with private and U.S. federal institutions, providing full life-cycle perspectives throughout project development stages. Martin’s approach considers important long-term views such as total cost of ownership, reliability-centered maintenance practices, operation strategies, and processes and policies to align asset management with business and mission objectives.
