When administration buildings it is, we can not ignore the value they bring the different technologies that are part of a property. Communication systems, computers, surveillance, access control, lighting, air conditioning, among others, are today a fundamental part of any kind of property, and is work of the Facility Manager not only maintain these systems in good condition, but also take their potential to better perform their duties.

Recently we welcome the announcement of the approval by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for the creation of a new international standard for facilities management. The norm which will begin to work and could be published in about three years, will be known as the ISO 41000 and seek to provide guidance for improving processes in regard to facilities management.

Industry management and operation of buildings is constantly evolving, the advent of new technologies and the professionalisation of the people linked to this work driving continuous improvement of the processes needed for optimal performance of buildings.

In its almost two years of existence as Management Building, the magazine has grown alongside its readers and has had a constant learning process with which every time we dive deeper into the world of managing buildings in Latin America.

Maintain a good balance between operational and strategic functions is often a challenge in any job, regardless of the field in which we perform. Infrastructure management is no exception; in fact, many professionals are subject to address short-term emergencies that may make it even harder to get this balance.
