* NEW [Print] Operational Guidelines for Educational Facilities: Maintenance, Third Edition * NEW [Print] Operational Guidelines for Educational Facilities: Maintenance, Third Edition.
Author: J. Thomas Becker, Editor in Chief, and Theodore J. Weidner, Editor and Project Lead

APPA has updated its third edition of Operational Guidelines for Educational Facilities: Maintenance, and it will be available soon in the APPA Bookstore.  

Filled with color charts, graphs, and case studies, the guidelines assist in creating staffing levels for your institution using APPA’s Levels of Maintenance, and exposing the reader to best management practices across a wide variety of campuses.  

Additionally, the book addresses a wide spectrum of issues facing the maintenance community today such as outsourcing, maintenance of buildings, customer service, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), sustainability, staff development, turnover of work (TOW), and managing a major interruption of basic services.  

This book also provides real-world management examples of the impact and importance of technological enhancements within the facilities profession. It explores the evolution and broader implications and opportunities of integrated platforms, and the utilization of data and mega-data in identifying pending concerns, and their use in driving decisions and procedures to address them.
Be sure to update your library with this new must-have publication!
