Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Providing Safe, Healthy, and Functional WorkSpaces by Fred Fanning gives good information to readers about space management, how to provide safe, healthy, and functional workspaces as the title suggests, and requirements and solutions related to workplace issues. The book gives a wider perspective on how the Space Management team of Facility Management Professionals, Interior Designers, AutoCAD Drafters, Architects, and Engineers work. This book is a good tool for everyone involved in Space Management because it gives the basics so that they are familiarized with space management, allocation, and how the terms related to those are used. It also shows how the information about space measurements in an organization should be documented in a table that shows the different units within an organization.

Providing Safe, Healthy, and Functional WorkSpaces gives good insights about space management and space planners and how it works so that space can be managed effectively. Fred Fanning discusses the topic methodically and expansively, making it easy for readers to understand the topic clearly. Every angle has been looked into and there are tables and bubble diagrams that will help readers in these professions create budgets to make sure that these facility operations are sustainable. The subject, though relevant, is not written about much and that makes this book handy and useful to readers who are associated with space management and space planning. The author's experience with the topic is valuable and the information provided will help readers grow and add value to the stakeholders they work with.
