The following was originally poste dup to the isite blog – but there are a couple of items in the GridWorks relevant to FM – well the maintenance and performance side of FM …
It also demonstrates whats happening in Second Life at the moment …..
SLengineer has changed its name to Grid Works
with its latest issue to reflect the magazine’s goal of documenting and reporting how companies and people are using online services and tools to support and enhance their work in engineering and science related fields
. Available as pdf here
in this issue:
Walking into the Map – David Rumsey shares his extensive map collection with residents of Second Life
TEEX Bridge Tour – the Texas Engineering Extension brings real life bridge maintenance training to Second Life
Cement Company LSmidth builds a virtual cement plant as an aid for real life recruitment
and how Implenia, Switzerland’s largest construction and building services provider, conceived and developed the virtual worlds communication interface (VWCI)— a tool for monitoring common building automation systems
This is an excellent communication example of how Second Life can be and is relevant to RL businesses, education and general learning / sharing improvements, and pleased that I (and isite) have been co-opted ‘on to the staff’ for future issues of the GridWorks, hopefully bringing an international, well UK view. Watch this space.

From the IPD website:
IPD last night launched a ground-breaking new environmental measurement standard … a much needed global framework for measuring the environmental performance of corporate buildings.
With governments around the world setting ambitious targets for reducing environmental impacts such as carbon emissions, it is vital that organisations take effective action to address the impacts of their occupied buildings. This is where the Code comes in! To find out more and to download your free copy of the Environment Code, click here www.ipd.com/environmentcode
What is the 4FM view of this? Already there is disent in the industry … EPC’s are a turnoff….
More on this later ………
