Transition management

Managing property during a transition process is a complex, multi-faceted operation. SGS Search provides swift, independent and expert assistance with the transition of your property, from advice and guidance to a full project management service.

Having a safe, sustainable and visually attractive building that is tailored to the needs of its users is essential for getting an optimal return on the operation of your property. To achieve this, however, buildings increasingly have to go through a transition process while remaining in operation. Whether you are looking to renovate or transform your property, you need to comply with legal requirements, you want to adapt your space to ensure sustainability, or the needs of your property users change: whatever your transition requirements, we are here to advise and support you.

Why transition management?

Property owners and managers encounter different reasons on a daily basis for undertaking improvements to a building. In order to support you with the technical aspects of your transition process, SGS Search has developed a transition management and administration service to provide:

  • Increased tenant satisfaction
  • Compliance with legal requirements such as energy labelling and asbestos regulations
  • A property that stands out in the market
  • Increased returns
  • Maintenance and replacement of technical facilities
  • Property transformation or repurposing
  • Resolution of safety issues (structural, technical, fire safety and legionella prevention)

How does it work?

Step 1: We start by establishing your objectives so that we can provide your organisation with the right technical expertise. We take into account the opinions of the building’s users, your legal obligations and any other relevant circumstances.

Step 2: We map out the current status of your property and clearly set out the opportunities and risks of the transition. Your multi-year maintenance plan is front and central in this process.

Step 3: We support you through the property transition itself. Think about subcontracting work and providing advice on permits and licences. At your request, we can temporarily take charge of the building management. This enables us to implement your property upgrades quickly and economically.

Fast, independent and with expertise

We support you with your transition requirements, drawing on our experience in technical due diligence surveys and a wide range of structural and technical inspections for all property types. We understand that you are concerned about the comfort of your tenants or users as well as getting the best return for your property. You can rely on us for an independent and expert approach. We also take an integrated approach to your transition, combining surveys where possible to keep your investment as streamlined as possible in terms of time and money.

Combination of fields of expertise

The range of inspections that are relevant in your change process fully depends on your specific issue. Often, one or more of the services below are needed:

  • Condition assessment
  • Structural and technical inspections
  • Energy performance advice (EPA) and energy audit

  • Renovation advice
  • Sustainability advice such as BREEAM or WELL
