One of the most critical times for any organization is the early planning period for a major capital building project, before preliminary design has begun. In this period, the practical experience of a facility operator is usually not considered because it is too early to hire a director.
Simple and, in hindsight, obvious mistakes are often made at this time, and by the time a director is hired it may be too late or too costly to correct them. A few days of project review by an experienced facility manager early on, and preferably before the architectural program has been set, is an extremely cost efficient way to avoid problems down the road.
