Facility Issues Benchmarking Groups

Facility Issues offers facility benchmarking surveys and services for those who participate in one of our multiple industry groups:

Museums & Cultural Institutions

This benchmarking group is designed for those who manage facilities for museums and cultural institutions. Over 130 institutions from nine countries have participated since the group started. The survey is endorsed by IAMFA, the International Association of Museum Facility Administrators.

Utilities Council

This is the benchmarking group of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) Utilities Council. Active since 1995, the IFMA Utilities Council was created to share and develop knowledge among facility managers of electric, gas, water, and telecommunications companies. Benchmarking participants gather and share data and best practices related to managing utility company facilities.

Research Facilities

This group primarily represents those who manage research facilities, including several of the US DOE labs. Government, corporate, and academic organizations are all welcome to participate. Participants in this group tend to have larger, more complex facilities such as labs on a mixed use campus.

Critical Facilities *New in 2018*

This benchmarking group is designed for managers of “critical” facilities – those that are always on 24×7 or mission-critical “can’t go down” buildings such as data centers, utility control centers, emergency service facilities, life care facilities, research labs, financial institutions, museums, transportation centers, power production, communication hubs, security centers, and manufacturing operations.  Many of the participants attend the Critical Facilities Summit where they share data and best practices on the operations of these important properties.

Facility Managers Round Table

The Facility Managers Round Table benchmarking group represents a diverse set of companies and government agencies throughout the U.S. with office and manufacturing facilities.  Participants in this program have included 158 million square feet of space at 85 sites.

Banking Institutions & Credit Unions

This benchmarking group is designed for intermediate banks and credit unions without dedicated facility analysts who wish to measure and manage building expenses associated with their combination of office, technical, and retail facilities.
