Public sector specialist properties
We have valuable services to offer to the public sector owners and proprietors of specialist properties, and we are capable of solving the increasingly complex issues that can arise. One-off projects, tight budgets and time constraints create demanding circumstances that require competency in capital markets, real estate economics and real estate engineering in equal measure. Public Private Partnerships (PPP) have become established around the world as a solution-oriented approach in the field of public building construction. These days, they are a compelling option for the public sector to lower the costs involved in the construction and operation of specialist properties and to ensure that the building is used as efficiently as possible. Schools, day-care centers and other education institutions, as well as hospitals, clinics and correctional facilities are among the most important types of public sector specialist properties.
Our teams of engineers, economists and lawyers have years of personal experience in the development of property-specific solutions for the public sector. We are process managers with a specific goal: we aim to help keep projects within budget and on schedule, in line with audit requirements and procedurally correct. We operate on a multi-disciplinary level and therefore examine all tasks and issues within a project from the perspective of a globally active real estate service provider.
Care and retirement homes
Our experience with care and retirement homes sets the standard across the industry. As a competent real estate service provider in this sector, we are very familiar with the necessary operational procedures and we know what matters to investors and operators. This makes us the ideal partner for clients who need to know what to be aware of when investing in this sector, how to avoid risks and how to save on operational costs.
The sustained yield compression of classic forms of real estate has diverted the attention of investors to specialist properties with relatively higher income opportunities. For this reason, international investors are becoming interested in parking garages, since the earnings development and appreciation potential of this type of specialist property, which is often centrally located, promise numerous advantages for investors and owners. Our real estate consultants offer investors and owners, as well as lessees and operators, the opportunity to take advantage of their experience, knowledge and extensive network to help realize the potential of their specialist property.
