Facility Management Salary Survey: 2015 Data

  October 16, 2015

Facility management salary data for 2015 is now available at no charge on FacilitiesNet.com. The FM salary survey, conducted by the editors of Building Operating Management, is based on responses from 2,467 facility professionals. It is the newest and most comprehensive data on salaries and bonuses for facility staff at all levels.

Information for the survey was gathered through a series of emails from FacilitiesNet, the website of Building Operating Management and Facility Maintenance Decisions magazines. Data were submitted during May, June, and July 2015. Salary and raise information is reported as the median amount. The median is a measure used to indicate a middle point of data. Half who responded earned less than the median, while half earned more. Numbers that are extremely high or low do not distort it. Some charts may not add to 100 percent because of rounding.

A wide range of job titles is covered, including building or facility manager, VP or director of facilities, maintenance manager, property manager, VP or director of real estate, project manager, director of physical plant, maintenance engineer, energy manager, VP or director of engineering, facilities coordinator/supervisor, plant/operations manager, maintenance technician.

Salaries are also broken down by education level, by facility department budget, and by square footage. In addition, facility professionals can also perform custom searches of the salary database.

The salary database is part of the Career Center on FacilitiesNet.com. The Career Center also includes job postings for facility professionals.
