– Assess the current condition of your building.
– Develop a list of building maintenance and operation procedures, and monitor performance of maintenance personnel.
– Plan a building improvement project, present planning documents, and develop a communications plan to keep stakeholders informed throughout a project.
– Follow the correct procedures when hiring architectural, engineering, and consultant assistance in assessing or improving your building.
– List technology planning needs and associated building requirements.
