Considers the adaptation and application of existing marketing theories to facilities management (FM). Reviews the literature on service quality, service dimensions and the use of service quality data before describing research aimed at generating an adequate set of service dimensions to create a framework around which FM service quality can be measured, and considering the feasibility of segmenting the internal customer base in relation to these service dimensions. Presents the results of a study of an internal department responsible for managing facilities across two large manufacturing sites operated by a major defence contractor, establishing a number of service dimensions applicable to FM service quality measurement: professionalism, provision of competent staff, communications, understanding the customer, reliability, and demonstrating value.
