Our aim is to support our partners to make the best use of their existing estate. Especially in the context of scarce resources, any new developments should only respond to an identifiable service, capacity, locality or suitability requirement which has been confirmed by the asset management process. Our job is to support informed decision making with good estate information.

Data management

We can undertake utilisation assessments, building facet reviews and service needs analysis, and infrastructure reviews to help develop strategic plans. We will then use this data to support our partners through estate transformation and improvement programmes.


Demographic mapping

It is now essential for public estates teams to understand the needs of the communities they serve in order to deliver the right services to the right people, in the most cost effective way. We believe in an evidence based approach to inform, shape and underpin the delivery of services through local plans and core strategies. This is necessary to ensure that services and the building from which they are delivered are in the correct locations.


Operational cost analysis

In an age of scarce resources we recognise that the public sector as a whole is under immense pressure to maintain the delivery of quality services while working with a shrinking budget and asset pool. That’s why we’ve developed a range of services aimed at tackling the challenges of the modern public sector estate.
