  • C o n s u l t i n g

    Why us?

  • Best practice principles:

    Our strata experts have experience in Australia, the birthplace of the concept of strata, and all of our

    consultants have comprehensive development experience (both in the capacity of developer and

    consultant). Our FM team works from international best practice principles (RICS) and is a member of local and

    international FM institutes (e.g. BIFM and MEFMA).

    Client objectives:

    We protect your commercial interests by developing contractual and operational

    mechanisms to safeguard these interests. We enhance your brand by helping you to actualize

    your vision for the project in a way that will attract investors and end-users while

    minimizing your exposure.

    C o n s u l t i n g

    Our approach

    Our approach spans four key areas that are fully integrated to make sure you get the most accurate and suitable advice for you and your project.

    Regulatory framework:

    We have substantial experience working with regulatory frameworks in a number of countries, including the UAE. However, where we need to, we have proven ways of working with local authorities, key entities and individuals to make sure we can support you by having a comprehensive understanding of local requirements.

    Project enablers and constraints:

    Whether at concept stage or at the stage of handover, we work within the existing project environment and adapt as required to develop the best possible solutions. We have a proven track record of developing innovative mechanisms within the constraints of the project while taking advantage of elements that support your project objectives.

    Client objectives

  • C o n s u l t i n g

    Adding value to your project

    Providing a targeted governance and management structure and phasing strategy that will ensure that component user interests are effectively separated and supported through well structured management platforms and regulatory frameworks

    Allowing an understanding of the project from an FM operations perspective and giving you the opportunity to mitigate design issues prior to completion of the project

    Providing an indication of operational expenditure and capital replacement costs over a set period of time

    Ensuring the separation of costs from those that will provide commercial benefit to you as the Client (i.e. revenue generating)

    Quantifying and minimizing developer exposure to operational costs.

    Safeguarding standards of quality and care through a determination of SLAs and KPIs for the ongoing management of the development

    Reducing the likelihood of sales disputes through the adjustment of sales and marketing documentation that provides buyers with project information thus optimising the appeal of the project and ensuring it is effectively communicated to investors

    Ensuring compliance with regulatory and legal requirements by liaising with the authorities on your behalf in terms of document preparation

    Establishing strong contractual obligations that ensure your vision, as a developer, is retained post-handover and that disputes relating to ongoing management are minimised.

    Providing an integrated service that ensures a consistent approach across all services, that supports you and minimises the need for your resources to manage multiple contracts

    By making sure that the community is given every chance for success, harmony and sustainability, with your brand enhanced for ongoing success
