Operational Excellence in Action: Best Practices for Facility Managers

April 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Keeping any structure up and running requires facility managers to ensure compliance with municipal and federal regulations as well as constant vigilance on the interior and exterior. Engineers from Oates Associates will provide insights on best practices to achieve operational excellence. The program is sponsored by the St. Louis chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).

Ashlee N. Peno, PE, SE, structural project manager, Tom L. Cissell, PE, PTOE, facilities group manager, and Haley J. Coons, PE, structural project manager, will cover several requirements to meet municipal, federal and storm water regulations. Additionally, the team from Oates Associates will review the periodic inspections necessary to achieve best practice management in these and other areas. The engineering professionals also will discuss inspections to increase the lifespan of a facility.
