Properties and Facilities Management Consulting

Overview

AKT has extensive experience in helping facilities management companies exploit the drive for efficiency through the provision of more integrated service offerings, or “Total FM,” resulting in consolidation and acquisition opportunities for strategic investors. Identifying new opportunities related to clients’ environmental challenges is also increasingly important.

The depressed property market and increased technology use have created a number of challenges and opportunities for property service companies. AKT has developed winning strategies for companies that have identified new opportunities and adapted quickly to this changing environment.

Client Issues

AKTCG helps FM providers create services and business models that deliver value to customers and shareholders, and is often asked to address a number of core questions:

  • What are the supply and demand trends in my sector?
  • How will new trends, such as in-housing, affect my business?
  • Which businesses should I consider as acquisition targets?
  • How will new regulation affect my business model?
  • What is the addressable market for low carbon FM services?
  • How can I exploit new routes to market (e.g. online estate agents)?
