The importance of the educational environment cannot be overlooked, whether it is a K-12 facility or higher-education college or university. Facilities managers of schools have a dedication to make sure their buildings allow students to learn and grow, all while managing costs and current trends.
“Smarter Ways to Manage Your School or University: A Roundtable Discussion” is available to watch on-demand. The panel discussed key topics education facilities are dealing with – including how to get improvement projects funded, managing energy and sustainability projects, and keeping occupants safe from natural and man-made threats and more.
Panelists for this event include:
• Brian Cowperthwaite, Senior Director, Facilities Services Operations & Maintenance, The University of Chicago
• John T. Shea, CEO, The New York City Department of Education, Division of School Facilities
• Keith Watkins, Director of Facilities, City School District of New Rochelle
