Snips’ parent company, BNP Media, is set to launch a new publication titled Sustainable Facility.

The new publication is from the editors and publishers of Environmental Design & Construction and Sustainable Home magazines, and will debut in October to more than 30,000 facility and energy management subscribers.

The magazine will publish twice in 2007 with editorial content written for professionals overseeing commercial, institutional, industrial and government facilities.

“We’re excited to expand the trusted resources of ED&C and BNP Media to launch Sustainable Facility,” said Liz Obloy, publisher. “This publication, combined with its Web site and e-newsletter, will meet the information needs of today’s facility managers, building owners, developers, and energy and power management professionals better than any other in the market.”

Editorial content will include all phases of commercial resource conservation unique to the “green” facility community, including alternative energy, building automation efficiency, sustainable design-build techniques for interiors and building “envelopes,” water conservation techniques, green cleaning and maintenance, indoor air quality, “cool” roofing and more.

“Sustainable Facility will serve as an important industry voice across the myriad avenues of commercial resource conservation and facility management,” said Joseph H. Mayton III, the new magazine’s editor. “Through strong, tailored editorial and dedicated columnists, Sustainable Facility will champion mainstreaming the greening of operating practices and provide energy and power management professionals with the information necessary for maintaining their facilities in more efficient and environmentally friendly ways.”

The first issue of the magazine will debut at the International Facility Management Association show, Oct. 24-26 in New Orleans and at the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, Nov. 7-9 in Chicago. The magazine’s second issue, the “Sustainable Facility Green Book,” will publish in December and feature a buyers guide and product directory.

Sustainable Facility will publish seven times in 2008.
