WAND Facilities Management Update!


This month we reviewed and updated the WAND Facilities Management Taxonomy.  New terms have been added throughout this comprehensive taxonomy. 

The WAND Facilities Management Taxonomy has 759 categories and 374 synonyms relating to all areas of Facilities Management including Management and Services, Sustainability Management, and Facilitiy Inspections and Testing.


Maintenance and Repairs now includes the area of Custodial Services, along with Maintenance Requests, Landscape and Grounds Maintenance, Emergency Maintenance and Repairs, and more.  

There are also terms relating to Safety and Security Management, Policies and Procedures, Documents, and Facility Billing and Rates.


The WAND Facilities Management Taxonomy provides a strong foundation of terms and can be customized to include additional terms related to a specific type of facility.

As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Facilities Management Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
