Property asset management is high on the agenda of all government departments and public sector bodies given the pressure to reduce operating costs, raise cash and improve the efficiency of service delivery. The process is a critical piece in the “re-engineering” jigsaw of public service delivery improvement.
Every local authority asset should have an agreed strategy be it:
- Disposal to recycle capital receipts
- Refurbish and retain
- Retain for community use
- Redevelop and share with partners
We have supported a number of local authorities delivering their asset management plans with the following services:
Sustainability is a key feature of local authority property asset management. Assets are assessed, for example,for energy and water use efficiency and rain water recycling schemes. The location of facilities will have an important sustainability aspect relating to the travel plans of customers and staff. The management of buildings has wide sustainability implications in meeting an organisation’s sustainability strategies and targets.
