Our Passion is buildings, we know how they work and we understand the synergies between the services, the people, and the structure.
We started our business for several reasons, as you’ll read below; our genesis was motivated by being witness to thousands of dollars wasted, of the owners money, which was completely unnecessary. We knew there were huge inefficiencies and misunderstandings in the operational process of a commercial building, leaving returns behind and costing owners opportunities both directly and indirectly.
Effective Technical Services Maintenance means reducing or negating false economies wherever possible; all too often, a lack of understanding about the commercial building as a holistic system bear witness to poor economic decisions, which ultimately, effects the opportunity to negotiate an increase in rent form the tenants, which in turn effects Building Performance.
We Started life serving the commercial building industry offering automated energy and building management control systems, both private and open tender, both in construction and buildings in operation. Our expertise in making building work as a holistic, seamless, single system, connecting all the components, making them work together and then monitoring and measuring to ensure the systems worked for the people, the owner and the community, built the foundations to offer a decent property management company.

Improving Tenants retention, improving the “value for money” or “ROI” on the outgoings, effective and proactive building management and monitoring the overall building performance, to deliver tangible results.
