Peace-of-mind for all parties in commercial property transactions: Purchase Sale Agreements, management/responsibility transfers, tenant lease agreements. Failure to disclose property defects is consistently in the top two reasons for post-transaction lawsuit filings. Discovery and disclosure of property defects doesn't have to ruin a transaction...or a relationship.
Very few business owners or managers have the time or expertise to deal with facilities matters. Unless their business IS facilities management this is understandable. Taking time to handle facilities needs requires a tradeoff: quit doing what makes you money whenever 'duty calls'. This cycle often continues simply because owners/managers think the only option is to add an employee, one with the skillset and expertise to perform these functions. In most cases, this really isn't necessary or practical. In fact, the total cost of adding that employee may be greater than the lost productivity. However, contracting this function is significantly less expensive than a salary and benefits, and you don't even need to provide office space! An additional benefit: in partnership arrangements such as medical offices, law offices, or CPA firms, one of the partners typically becomes the defacto facilities "handler".

The cost of commercial property inspections depends on several variables: scope of inspection (simple walk-through vs extensive top-to-bottom), age of structure, size of building, area accessibility, and level of report detail.
Facilities management services can be scaled to fit a client's needs and budget, and can be based on size of facility, hours requested/required per week, and scope of management.
Consulting services will typically be billed at an hourly rate, or a percent of project cost if of long duration.
Absolutely! Sometimes a business is handling the day-to-day management. But then something new comes up that has never been dealt with before. In some cases, it may even be a full-time facilities manager or director of facilities that may need help. We want to be the first call in such cases! We can partner with the client for whatever duration needed to work it out. We can even contract as interim facilities managers during a staffing transition or long-term absence of a responsible party.
We do! Depending on the arrangement, we can even respond to emergencies in the middle of the night. We have extensive contacts for all trades in the facilities field and know the best experts to call if we can't fix the problem.
Property managers specialize and focus on the business operations of a commercial property. Their activities typically include budgeting, tenant management, rent collection, lease negotiations, and maintenance oversight. Facilities managers concentrate on the health and function of the building and grounds, including occupant comfort, and may even get involved in landlord/tenant issues for clients. In some cases, property managers utilize the services of contract facility managers to handle all physical maintenance issues.
We can provide training to employees of your business in a variety of subjects: security systems, security policies, employee safety, self-defense, or active shooter response. Training can include lecture, scenario training, or hands-on.
