Estate management involves a complex set of processes that require high quality planning in order to be optimally effective. There is a long list of priorities for estate managers, from reducing health and safety risks to improving the perception of facilities. To be able to achieve the most important targets, a first-class long-term plan is essential.
At Oakleaf, we help our clients to reach their estate management KPIs by offering a wide range of expert services. Using our years of experience at the forefront of driving estate management innovation, we work with clients to develop a bespoke plan to deliver the required results.
How does Oakleaf support estate strategies?
After an initial discussion about your organisation’s service and business needs, we conduct an in-depth analysis of the estate, providing the findings in an easy-to-understand document that highlights areas for improvements and any other concerns.
We have specialist analysts for each aspect of the analysis, to ensure that the highest level of expertise is used in every part of the process. We apply our own traffic light analysis method to assess all of the available KPIs and the information can then be used to make informed decisions about the estate.
The plan will then be developed using the analysis data, addressing key points such as:
Where are we now?
In this section we cover areas such as whether there is a poor service/premises fit and poor quality of accommodation. We also analyse backlog costs and review whether there is a changing local population.
Where do we want to be?
We look at the top objectives in terms of what position our clients wants the organisation to be in. We compare the analysis data with national benchmark figures to give our clients a better idea of how they are performing in relation to other organisations.
How do we get there?
This part of the plan determines the actions that need to be taken in order to resolve issues and achieve KPIs such as reducing backlog costs and fluctuating staff numbers. Applying the highly effective traffic light system enables us to produce a visual presentation of data to the key decision-makers, such as board members. This then ensures that they can make services-led decisions based on the best available information.
What is in the report?
The KPIs can vary depending on the needs of the business but the typical KPIs that are analysed are:
• Condition Backlog Costs
• Statutory Compliance Costs
• Fire Risk Costs
• Space Utilisation
• Functional Suitability
• Energy Performance
• Size/Location of Premises
• Remaining life of Premises
• DDA Costs
• Revenue Costs
• Property Value
• Potential to Expand
