    I think they are saying you should know at least a little bit about all those items. What is important to the building owner would vary with the situation. I would try to find out what my client's expectations are before starting out. Some of those items can be taken care of by the realtors, no?

    BTW, "plant life cycle" is the power plant or mechanicals like the elevators, I think. Yes, that's important.
