Facilities Management BLS teams take seriously our responsibility to manage the assets that are entrusted to our care.  To this end, we have incorporated proactive maintenance strategies to optimize building operations and provide a stable and engaging physical environment for the programs within.  We conduct planned and scheduled checks on building systems to detect equipment issues prior to failure.  In certain buildings, we use Fault Detection Diagnostics (FDD) to analyze equipment and building automation data to proactively identify issues.


Facilities Management responds to major emergencies caused by building system failures, accidents or weather events.  Depending on scope, supplemental funding from risk management or central administration may be required.
