Real Estate & Construction

Efficient land asset and real estate management is an art form that requires both intuition and analytical prowess at a wide range of topics. These can include:

  • Looking at things from the viewpoint of prospective real estate investors: choosing the right real estate designs, winning buy-ins from potential stakeholders; ensuring compliance with construction timetables; finding the right moment to bring the real estate to market; and managing the financial and operating risks
  • Taking the view of construction companies: setting up an efficient supply chain and systems to guarantee performance quality
  • Looking from the point of view of industrial, financial and service companies: avoiding unnecessary expenses and leveraging the commercial potential of the real estate assets under ownership
  • Thinking from the point of view of prospective municipal and regional administrations: find ways to manage in the most efficient way possible your territorial resources in order to achieve sustained economic development and improved quality of life
