The Latest Facilities Management Resources
Benchmarking Report: HVAC
For some time, PRSM membership identified retail facilities benchmarking as one of the most sought after tools the Association could provide. In 2011, the Benchmarking Task Force identified a single trade, HVAC, as the focus of this program’s efforts. The result of the Task Force’s mission, the PRSM 2012 Benchmarking Report identifies the key HVAC metrics which are retail specific, and have long been sought after by the membership as one of the most important tools the Association could provide. This document is a culmination of PRSM goals for the 2011-2012 Benchmarking Task Force, and specifically focuses on three areas: policy and HVAC operations practices survey results and benchmarking, data analysis and benchmarking metrics, and component repair information and benchmarks.
2013 Best Practices Book
2013 Best Practices follows the previous best practices books created by PRSM Association in the last three years. This publication is a resource of retail facility best practices and an education guide to inform the reader about best practices in retail facility management and maintenance.
Building Automation Systems (BAS) Toolkit
This Toolkit is a compilation of Guides, Education, Tools and general Resources from leading manufacturers in the building automation industry. One of the most active areas of business design and retrofit encompasses all things HVAC, including control systems. Retailers spend more than $20 billion on energy every year, and even a modest reduction in energy costs can result in a significant impact on profit margins and sales metrics. BAS solutions can help FMs achieve these goals. Energy Efficiency and Smart Energy will be key focus areas for FMs in the coming years, and for your benefit there are a number of related components in this kit. Regardless of your situation, and to help you tackle these issues, PRSM Association is here to help. We hope these resources help you mange upgrades to your buildings, as well as design and construction of the retail store of the future.
PRSM Disaster Planning and Management Toolkit
Welcome to the PRSM Disaster Planning and Management Toolkit. The retail environment is constantly impacted by external factors, changes, and events – whether from natural disasters, such as tornadoes, earthquakes, storms, etc., or from the man-made variety. A Retail FM can find themselves monitoring the turbulence caused by an approaching tropical storm or hurricane one day, to dealing with an end of the summer wildfire the next, to dealing with the aftermath of a violent store incident the next.
