Iran Facility Management Companies are rare because they are not well defined and are not known by the customers
When it comes to defining Facility Management in Iran many are confused on what the profession responsibilities are and how it is different from Property Management, Maintenance Management, and Strata Management. This is because Iran Facility Management Association hasn’t been formed in Iran’s Market to serve as the contact and single point of standardization and reference for this subject, therefore, engineers from different regions of the world influence the definition with their background from Europe, Australia, and Asian markets.
