Mission-critical facilities and the higher education institutions they serve are long-lived — they last for decades, if not longer. To operate and maintain the facilities sustainably, stakeholders need to have and retain a significant amount of embedded skills and knowledge. Unless that legacy is systematically identified, captured and maintained, complex higher ed institutions like universities and colleges risk missing or losing the benefits of that institutional knowledge as a result of the inevitable turnover of personnel. A sustainable Facility Knowledge Management (FKM) program provides the foundation for creating and leveraging the information captured during commissioning throughout the design, construction, and delivery phases (as well as during occupancy). The FKM program can ensure that diverse campus facilities and their buildings’ management and information systems are designed, installed and operate to meet the university’s requirements and that mission-critical facilities can function within a cloud-based software system to form a baseline for sustainable building operations throughout their lifecycle.

Join Alex Kozinets, Chief Product Officer at Facility Grid, Eric Forman, CEO at Facility Grid, and Isaac Annis at Hensel Phelps for a lively discussion of the challenges higher ed facility managers face and how they can unlock the long-term benefits of commissioning by creating a platform for capturing and transferring institutional facility knowledge.
