We understand the particular pressures involved with managing the investment of taxpayers’ money in the public sector.
Demands are greater. Scrutiny is closer. Budgets are tighter. By working with our clients at the earliest stage of a project, to understand their assets and how they might use them better, we help deliver any subsequent works on schedule and within budget, whatever the constraints.
Moving with the times
The rapidly changing business environment, with its emphasis on higher efficiency targets, requires clients to reduce revenue spend and make better use of capital assets. All whilst improving front line services and driving economic growth.
Key to achieving this is a robust estates strategy. Our advisers discuss your goals and develop an approach that meets your immediate requirements, whilst delivering best value over time.
This doesn’t necessarily equate to a new build project – you could generate additional income through the disposal of redundant land, or repurpose existing assets.
Managing assets effectively
We have developed a substantial benchmarking database that helps clients assess the assets they have, and the potential they offer. The insight it delivers is invaluable to clients in determining the strategy for any given project.
Our access to the latest cost data, market analysis and building information modelling (BIM) capabilities means our thinking is always based on sound information.
We have worked closely with governments and public sector clients on a wide range of projects. These include:
- City and County: Jails, courts, detention centres, emergency services, administrative buildings, libraries, parks and recreation centres
- State Government: Projects for university and college systems, financing and investment commissions, housing authorities and correctional systems
- Federal: Prisons, housing, training facilities
We understand the key factors to successfully deliver projects using government funding and the aspects that are significant to a community and its residents. Chris Soffe, President & CEO, USA
