Management of properties requires a different skill set and unique solutions, strategies, and tactics than management of a typical acute care facility. This session presents real estate basics, as well as strategies for managing disbursed real estate portfolios as both the lessor and the lessee.

  • Identify the difference between facility management and property management
  • Distinguish the types of properties and their unique requirements
  • Review a lease agreement with an understanding of the important and relevant clauses and compliance requirements
  • Identify the best practices in managing disbursed portfolios

A common challenge faced by facilities and designers regulated by the FGI is the creation of a “functional program.” This presentation describes a collaborative effort between facilities, designers, and an authority having jurisdiction to create a tool to assist in creating a functional program. Attendees will review the tool, discuss the process, and describe in conceptual terms how a program is used. This tool includes high-level direction for creating a Basis of Design narrative and risk assessments.

  • Pinpoint WHO should be involved in drafting a functional program and WHY a functional program is important when designing, licensing and constructing a building
  • Recognize HOW the regulatory authority uses the functional program and HOW active problem-solving between facilities, designers and AHJs can be mutually beneficial
  • Identify WHAT is important to include in a functional program
  • Recognize WHEN the functional program evolves during the design process from conceptual needs to operational function
