Estates, Asset and Facilities Management

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) are all represented within this sector. With an increase in capital development and statutory compliance through new regulation, organisations have taken a far more pro-active approach to managing and developing their property portfolios.

Recent years have seen a significant investment across universities, colleges, schools and hospital estates within the public sector and the 3rd sector with The Scottish Government and Scottish Futures Trust working to ensure public buildings are fit for purpose and modernised and maintained accordingly.

In the private sector, there has been significant institutional wealth invested into the Scottish property sector and an expansion of some of the traditionally-Scottish funds into the wider UK market and internationally.
