On behalf of customers, management is tasked with managing finance so that it is consistent and tailored to the needs of customers in the building.

Effective building management is a job that requires high coverage but also pays attention to meticulous details to help ensure customer satisfaction. Currently, buildings have a management board responsible for all operations and management activities in the building.

3. Managing buildings - still not considered a profession?

Before the development of the economy, the buildings grew with modern architecture and equipment, requiring the operation and management of a professional building to become urgent. For this, there must be personnel to operate and manage the building effectively. In Vietnam, new building management is known, while developed infrastructure countries have become specialized training in this area. Real estate management services in Vietnam are not highly professional; Service management of buildings in Vietnam is not yet considered a profession, while the professional real estate industry requires higher demands for knowledge and services.

The above statement is not wrong, but once the market needs, the supply also follows that development and that is the reason, although not yet considered a profession, but the building management is now more interested.

4. To become a professional manager, a building manager?

The management and operation of buildings requires a lot of knowledge and skills such as electricity, water, regulations as well as procedures for fire prevention and fighting, legal regulations, lease contracts and many questions. Untitled issues arise when operating a building. However, in Vietnam, there is no training program suitable to market demand because the teaching content is not realistic, the trained people need to be practiced.

Besides, the job of building management has not been considered as a career that needs to be taught, all the knowledge and knowledge that building managers have is mostly due to word of mouth, people who go ahead. guide people who go after and have no textbooks in this area.

In real estate management services, it is necessary to divide and evaluate each element such as real estate management, comfort equipment management and financial management. The building manager must have knowledge of: finance, marketing, law and engineering. And the building management team needs to join the project right in the construction phase to be able to establish a management system as well as a personnel structure.

Based on the above criteria, plus the share from the building manager, if you want to become the manager (head of the building), you must know the knowledge of all areas to be able to operate the system from software to personnel smoothly. In addition, you must have the planning skills, as well as know how to deploy the work on schedule. At the same time, there must be skills in budget management, negotiation with contractors, suppliers, thoughtfulness and sharp observation to train and encourage employees to work alongside negotiating skills with customers and capable of withstanding high pressure. If only employees, knowledge requirements as well as job responsibilities will be softer.

However, no matter what position you take, if you want to work in the building management industry, you must also have good presentation, communication skills, agility, acumen at work, withstand work pressure, yes high sense of responsibility, ability to work independently.

In order for a job to be considered a profession, the following elements are needed:

-When it is a job that requires the person to do it full time.

-The first training school about that job was established.

-When a local / national professional association is established.

-When the code of codes of ethics, including codes of conduct, is adopted.

-When that federal / national career law is established, approved.

Considering the above concept, the management of the building is not considered a profession. The two pressing issues raised here are:

Firstly, it is necessary to build a vocational training system, with a focus on theoretical training associated with practice.

Secondly, it is necessary to build Vietnam and local building management associations.

Only so, the management of the new building is recognized as a profession and we, the new Vietnamese building managers are not vulnerable at home as it is today. That, requires us to act!
