Professor Svein Bjorberg, from Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology Multiconsult AS, Oslo, Norway.
Professor Roger Flanagan from School of Construction Management and Engineering, University of Reading, UK. Visiting Professor of Tsinghua University, China.
The main purpose of this seminar is to share the latest knowledge in this area and to discourse the importance of Facilities Management into the public buildings and to obtain a more thorough understanding of Facilities Management involvement practice. Facilities Management examine the criteria that influence maintenance cost of public buildings and implementation of cost minimization model that potentially compared with how it is currently executed. Looking at the relevant issues, it is vital to identify the factors that are hindering Facilities Management to effectively integrate in the public building daily operation. This seminar is intended to provide evidence that the public building construction needs a cost savings framework that potentially serves as a guide to minimize the maintenance cost value at operational phase.
