2.13 How Scalable Solutions Can Improve Your Campus
Thursday, October 19, 2017 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Venue: George R. Brown Convention Center
Room: 342D

Campuses are innovative places; however, many issues facing their facilities are shared by other organizations. Scalable FM solutions, adapted to education, could help beautify campuses and make them more appealing to all constituents- from prospective students and parents to top professors and researchers. Whether you’re hoping to tackle deferred maintenance, mine the data in your facilities or reach sustainability goals, this session will dive into ways to address these issues and more. No matter the size of your institution, a technology platform can help by automating many processes of facility management, increasing efficiency and compliance, while also decreasing costs and risk. Data can provide unprecedented insights that can not only be used to increase the visibility of FM as a strategic partner to the campus, but enable insights that drive productivity through the campus experience, develop cost effective master plans, and create opportunities to drive P3 opportunities. . Be sure your FM team has the necessary skillset to analyze the data, choose appropriate partners when necessary and use that intelligence to drive results to broaden university goals. Brad Shokes, who has over a decade of FM operations experience will lead this session along with Ron Gregory from JLL’s Public Institutions practice group specializing in Higher Education.
