Please join our next Virtual Roundtable where one of our IFMA MSP Platinum Sponsor’s, INSPEC, will discuss how Facility Managers not only need to understand the current condition of their building envelope but, even more importantly, be able to predict and prioritize future maintenance and repairs ahead of time and ensure there is enough money in the budget to accomplish this needed future work. An effective Building Envelope Condition Assessment not only helps predict future funding needs but can actually provide defensible support and increased funding for your facilities.
This discussion will focus on the most important aspects of an effective Building Envelope Condition Assessment: best practices, common mistakes, some examples, and tips for implementing an effective program. Expert Facility Condition Assessment can help one:
•best utilize budgets by prioritizing project needs
•Provide defensible objective evidence for needed funding
•Minimize Surprises and Disruption of Tenants
•Significantly Increase Return on Investments
•Implement an effective management program for facility assets.
Please submit any specific questions to Rhonda Small prior to this Virtual Roundtable.

Has your Company Developed a ReEntry Strategy for the Safe and Immediate Return of your Tenants, Employees, and Visitors to Your Facility?
Join us as ABM, an IFMA MSP Gold Sponsor, will discuss disinfection protocols, best practices, common mistakes, and tips for implementing an effective reentry strategy. There is a heightened sense of scrutiny for facility owners and managers to demonstrate that they’re doing their part to provide clean, healthy, and safe environments. A clean facility is not enough. Facilities must incorporate disinfection protocols to provide a healthier space and maintain occupant trust. Now more than ever, building occupants are hyper-aware of the appearance of cleanliness and will expect more transparency and visibility into the cleaning process.
Please join IFMA MSP and our Chapter Gold Sponsor, RSP, as we discuss the future of our workspace and creating a Resilient Office that is flexible and adaptable to adjust to future disruption.
RSP’s Dawn Brown, Senior Associate at RSP, and Alissa Franconi, Associate Principal and Studio Design Lead at RSP, will talk about recent post-pandemic experience with clients (prominent healthcare, public utility, and others) and how it has provided unique insights into developing a successful Return to Office strategy.
The results show that this begins with the understanding of “Why we want to return to office?”. Many organizations have been addressing the How to return to office, like health safety, process and protocols. While health and safety may be the top priority, the “How” doesn’t address the “Why”. An important question in return to office surveys is indicating that most people have been quite satisfied working remotely – this could be a short-term outcome or a new norm. The jury’s still out. But case in point, cultural integration of current and new hires can only occur most effectively in the “organization’s home”. Thus, there’s merit in thinking about re-establishing the importance of an office all over again.
RSP has focused on discovery, survey and vision sessions to help clients understand their answer to “Why?”, then designing resilient spaces to meet those specific needs. Resiliency is important because the spaces need to respond to workplace strategies but also be flexible and adaptable to adjust to a future disruption.
In this presentation we look at the question “Why you want to return to the office?”. We will also share multiple case studies as examples of different solutions. One size does not fit all. We all want to work together to find what works best for you.
