From our home base in Milwaukee, FacilityNow helps building owners, managers, and facilities/maintenance staff throughout the Midwest to track what goes on in their buildings. We use drawings and databases to track people and furniture, how much square footage each department or tenant is using, when cleaning and maintenance needs to be done, that kind of stuff. Then we use that information to save our customers money when projects like construction or large people moves come up. Turns out that keeping track of what you have costs less than rediscovering it over and over.

Meet Our Team
Sometimes a property doesn’t come with a good set of drawings. We
create drawings that depict as-built conditions ranging from basic
walls, doors, and windows, to complete building system
documentation or BOMA documentation. We can also collect and
develop detailed asset tracking systems in the formats you already
We document and track what you have ahead of a project to eliminate surprises once work begins. With the use of secure online project management tools, we create a “single source of truth” for all project interaction. As construction wraps up, our team documents the final results of a project to maintain the integrity of your drawings saving time and money on future work.

FM Retro Tech
Lately I have gotten into retro computing and it has inspired me to create a series of machines to showcase “FM Retro Tech”. This will involve creating a machine that reflects the technology of each decade from the 1980’s forward. For starters we will be exploring the 1980’s by building an IBM XT machine to […]

Mary drops the knowledge on: Furniture Storage Strategies
Perhaps you have 500 workstations that are 20 years old, solid steel and indestructible. Over the years you’ve changed it up. You raised panels, lowered panels, raised worksurfaces to support standing, reduced storage, torn some of them down and put them back up again or any number of changes to suit the prevailing needs over time […]
Engaging your internal customers
Recently I was in a discussion about engaging your internal customers. To me this is something that never gets less important. So who are we talking about here? Your internal customers are your building’s occupants but really they are more than that. Internal customers are your constituency, a body of people and potential supporters. When […]
The thing people ask us the most…
“So, what exactly do you guys do?” Over the years, the “thing FacilityNow does” has changed quite a bit. But before I explain it, let me tell you about an important thing that we don’t do: We don’t sell anything. No software or hard products. Our objectivity is something we prize. Okay, so what do […]
What are company values really about?
Many companies have a stated set of values but it can be tough to know what they really represent. Can a company be expected to uphold a set of shared values in the same way that friends, family, or society itself is? In my own career I have worked with companies whose values are held […]
