Strategy

STRATEGY

We build sustainability strategy into operations to improve how existing building systems are operated, capital projects are executed, and recognition is ultimately achieved and communicated to stakeholders. Our unique approach enables low- and high-performing buildings to reach their operating potential with minimal capital by closing the performance gap; the 10-30% savings that can be achieved by strategically reducing utility, capital, and procurement costs.

Portfolio operational strategy: Analyze your portfolio operations to identify waste, synergies, and improvement opportunities with a strong business case. Implement customized strategies for reducing utility, capital, and procurement costs across your portfolio.

Operations & maintenance standards: Reduce operating & capital costs across your portfolio by consistently enhancing the efficiency, life cycles, controllability, and reliability of existing building systems; while improving customer satisfaction and retention.

Operational assessments: Identify no- and low-cost improvement opportunities to dial-in building operations, reduce utility waste, and increase NOI and asset value.

Strategic procurement: Reduce the cost of procuring facility supplies and services through the consolidation of contracts, volume pricing, and vendor management. 

Capital planning strategy: Consistently forecast capital expenditures and manage financial risk at the property level and across your portfolio.

Utility benchmarking and reporting: Measure and analyze utility performance, target low-performing properties for improvements, identify and quickly address spikes in utility costs, demonstrate progress towards achieving portfolio-wide performance goals, and report to internal and external stakeholders.

RFP facilitation & project execution support: Leverage the RFP process to ensure competitive pricing is received for portfolio upgrades. Prioritize, plan, implement, and track improvement projects across your portfolio. Drive results to ensure projects are completed on-time and on-budget.

Market and peer analysis: Evaluate your peers to position your organization as a leader in operational excellence and sustainability.

Sustainability platform design: Integrate sustainability standards and guiding principles into your corporate operations and culture, engage stakeholders, and track key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators.

GRESB reporting: Enhance your Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) survey response by streamlining portfolio reporting and enhancing corporate policies and practices to improve your performance with key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators.
