"Designing for Stewardship: Aligning Project Decisions with the Total Cost of Ownership"
Author: Guckert, Donald J., P.E., and Jeri Ripley King
Published In: Facilities Manager
Date: November/December 2006

Discusses the need for this transformation to be based on a solid foundation that takes into account competing perspectives, develops defensible standards of design and construction, and provides collaborative compilation of knowledge that can align decisions to facilities stewardship.
