The focus of attention of the design and construction professions has in the past been concentrated on new building design and development, and little attention has been given to the use and maintenance of buildings over time. An agenda for facilities education to address this problem is set out. A postgraduate facilities education programme, to be set up in the next two or three years, will have a curriculum which covers five areas: physical characteristics of building stock; human issues of building occupancy; financial issues of development and use; locational issues; and management issues – which cut across the traditional boundaries of the “property” professions.
