Overview

All businesses are in effect “in property” – but only a minority manage their property efficiently. The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors recently stated that British industry is “throwing away £18 billion every year” through inefficient control and use of its property assets.

In addition to the pressing need to improve the management of property assets, there is now a growing body of new legislation covering waste, energy consumption and reduction, and a host of environmental issues – all of which place an increasing burden on the facilities and property professional.

With 64 separate entries arranged in an accessible expanded index format, the reader is able to focus on each particular subject and to find answers to problems quickly and efficiently. Valuable recent case studies add helpful further background and the work includes checklists and sample forms throughout.

Like all of David Martin’s books, this is clear, concise and concentrates on what needs to be done in practice. It covers every aspect of facilities administration, budgetary and expenditure control and property administration, from accommodation planning, acquisition, building works and condition surveys through dilapidations, environmental considerations, health and safety and insurance to maintenance, outsourcing, privity of contract, rating, security, underletting, VAT, waste and zoning – and much more.
