What we do

Understanding and managing a property portfolio

In order to bring a sense of order and control around the built environment, organisations with property assets will need to decide how things are managed; how to keep on top of compliance and risk, what assets to keep and what to dispose of, and how it’s going to manage its assets going forward.

In order to understand where you are with managing your property, here are some starter questions:

  • How does your organisation view its property portfolio, purely in terms of bricks and mortar?
  • Does your organisation’s built assets support your core business?
  • Would a greater understanding of your estate give your organisation valuable business opportunities?
  • Would transforming the structure and culture of your estates and facilities team provide greater assurance and opportunities for innovation?

ESG has a wealth of experience and expertise in terms of organisational development, portfolio management and facilities services.
