Optimize your success with professional facility management

Take the opportunity and apply now


The understanding of the term “Facility Management” has changed in Austria. In contrast to recent perception, Facility Management is more than being a “janitor” or “residential manager”. Facility Management is about carrying out secondary processes professionally and about supporting the core business activities of an organization. FM creates economic, ecological and social added value and real estate is considered throughout its entire life-cycle.

Meanwhile, facility management has been established as a renowned field of management. Both on national and international level the demand for facility managers is increasing.
