Safe, Secure, Agile Space Top of Mind for FMs in Higher Education
White Paper – Higher Education Survey Report 2018
“Safety & security” and “dynamic/agile space management” were the top two areas of focus for real estate and facility management professionals within higher education across the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, based on a recent survey.
This survey, which collected responses from facility managers, real estate managers, campus planners, maintenance managers, and services managers from approximately 80 universities within the United States, The United Kingdom, and the Netherlands was a collaborative effort between three parties: Planon, a global real estate and facility management software company; one of its UK clients, Lancaster University; and the United States-based Campus Facility Management Technology Association (CFTA).
The main objectives of the survey were to answer questions, such as:
What are the focus areas and technologies that are most relevant to real estate and facility management professionals in higher education today?
What are the major similarities and differences between the priorities of these three countries (the United States, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom)?
