From Building networks
Starting out in the profession of property / facilities management can be both exciting and daunting. Apart from the economics there is a lot of compliance to keep on top of. I am often contacted by graduates and new comers seeking advice and courses in building law.
The first thing I recommend is to purchase this wee book for facilies and property managers. This will give you a solid overview of all the requirements.

We often learn more from our informal networks than our formal ones. How many times have you learned something by eavesdropping in a staff room or from a colleague over a cup of tea? How many times does the builder learn some detail, or new rule from the building inspector on-site? Some inspectors are walking encyclopedias. So lets not forget the good things that happen in the building industry. The benefit of the mateship and informal networks. Take a look at the networks I have formed to get more of this happening in the internet space.
