Abstract

Recently, the global market is struggling with one of the most critical economic crisis to have ever occurred. The solution is to attack the weak chain links effectively, focusing on specific targets rather than use capitals thoughtlessly. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce and follow more effective methodologies in each field of application, towards a general effort to move out of the crisis. In this paper, the authors analyse the field of Facility Management, in particular the improvement of buildings conditions and performance through Building Commissioning, to provide proof of its concepts effectiveness, presenting a new way of application.
