Locations and Facilities

A Location is a physical address

A Facility is a building, or a logical group of buildings at a location.  

We use this distinction because a lot of our clients have campus type locations, e.g. mines, manufacturing plants, schools, universities etc. and they need to track facility compliance documents by facility, not by the whole campus.  For instance, at a school, the documentary requirements fro a swimming pool are completely different for the Office/Admin block

For example a school has a Location, the street address, with multiple Facilitiese.g.

  • Admin Block
  • Classrooms - North wing
  • Classrooms - East Wing
  • Classrooms - South Wing
  • Science Block
  • Sports field
  • Swimming pool
  • Boarding House - Able
  • Boarding House - Bravo
