Building managers thrive on the unpredictability of their work
Building managers never have a dull moment at work.
“You never know just what is going to happen,” Sarah Banwarth said. “I’m hardly ever in my office. I’m constantly running around, checking on things. Some days I get hit with things I didn’t know I would have to deal with.”
Last December, Banwarth, formerly a building manager for the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business, and King Goldman, building manager for VCU Development and Alumni Relations, received the first annual Building Manager Awards, sponsored by VCU Facilities Management, during the annual building manager meetings.
