tell me the difference?
Many people ask us what we mean by 'under-utilised' and 'under-performing' assets.
Here's how they are different and how that affects our approach.
Land or assets without an existing use that are partially or fully vacant.
Here, our focus is on understanding site potential, with the aim of identifying uses and new opportunities that align with client objectives.
we are on a mission
To put under-utilised and under-performing land and assets to good use.
our approach to optimisation
When looking to optimise portfolios , we look beyond the sites themselves at the big picture to identify ways to improve overall portfolio value in a way that aligns with our client's own values and strategic objectives.
For example, we worked with Crown Lands NSW to review their portfolio and identify opportunities to increase tree canopy and improve access to open space through the optimisation of available land.
When looking to optimise individual properties , we look within the site itself, investigating the current experience and how it is being used by people on a daily basis. This helps us to then identify ways to improve performance in line with our client's own values and strategic objectives.
For example, we are working with Griffith University to review their campus and identify opportunities to diversify uses and transform the site into a vibrant neighbourhood.
No project is ever the same, but our methodology remains true. These are the steps we take with clients to help take their site or portfolio from where it is, to where they vision it to be.
✔ Increase tree canopy and reduce heat island vulnerabilities.
✔ Improve walkability and access to quality open green space.
✔ Reduce land maintenance costs and tax liabilities.
✔ Increase activation and safety within and around the site.
✔ Uplift local neighbourhoods and improve surrounding property prices.
✔ Enhance neighbourhood amenity and support local economies.
✔ Enhance sense of place, belonging and pride.
✔ Bring environmental, social and economic policy to life.
