As the market becomes increasingly competitive and buildings ever more complex, it is absolutely vital that companies are well organised. Which means 'doing the right things' and 'doing the right things well'. This applies to everything which holds value to your organisation, not in the least your real estate. Buildings and utilities significantly contribute to your organisation's core processes. In time, however, they may also inhibit your ambitions and pose risks. Tailored asset management adds value to your primary process. It also improves your ability to amend your property and rental contracts to respond to changes in your accommodation needs in a timely manner.

Value and added value

Buildings and utilities have a limited lifespan, during which their functional and technical value to your organisation fluctuates. Asset management is designed to help your organisation obtain maximum long term value from its assets. This requires more than just technical maintenance. The value of your property is also determined by the degree to which it reflects the current and future state of your organisation in terms of predictable performance. Performance in matters of availability, functionality, safety, sustainability, and adaptability in terms of flexibility, elasticity, and legal flexibility. This, in turn, requires careful balancing of performance improvement, risk management and cost optimisation.

Costs and opportunities - the 'line of sight'

What is it that causes problems in Real Estate Management? Most organisations have several levels between strategy making and strategy executing. Generally, each level has its own jargon, modus operandi, budget and information. Every day, decisions are made at each level - decisions which affect the value of the entire organisation's property. It is fair to say that the quality and timing of these departmental decisions often leave a lot to be desired. The result? Wasted expenditure and missed opportunities - we want you to avoid.

Integral approach

What to do with your real estate property? Renovate it, refurbish it, convert it, rezone it, rent it out or demolish it? Maintain existing utilities or invest in new, low energy technologies instead? Decisions like these affect your entire organisation in terms of costs, risks and comfort. Ideally, such decisions are related to the short and long term objectives of the organisation as a whole. In order to homogenise the decision making process, organisations must ensure that they possess the right information, the right expertise and the right people. This requires an all-inclusive approach in which all the individual management activities of all the separate departments are subordinated to the interests of the organisation as a whole.
