The accomplishments of facility managers can be as much out of sight as chilled water running through a pipe. But the actions of facility departments add significant value to many organizations. Building Operating Management created FMXcellence to recognize the important contributions that facility management make. In this, the first year of the program, FMXcellence honors are being presented to 10 facility departments. The notes below merely highlight the achievements of these departments.
