    Hi michaelfung,

    In conformity with the Computer Encyclopedia

    facilities = a general term for equipment including hardware, software and personnel. It typically refers to equipment in the telecommunication industry and may also include the building or office containing it.

    In conformity with the Architecture terminology

    facility = all or any portion of a building area or structure, including the site of which it is located, wherein specific services are provided or activities are performed.

    facilities (Informal) = a restroom

    In conformity with the Business Dictionary

    equipment = machines or major tools necessary to complete a given task. The tools a mechanic needs to repair a a machine are an example.

    Regards.
