Government (Federal, State and Municipal and Military) and Non-Profit
The government market, our broadest vertical sector, and the non-profit sector may make excellent long-term partners. The government market includes any building or facility with government or institutional ownership not falling under other categories. Private non-profits such as the Boy Scouts of America, churches and other religious organizations, and social service agencies often own commercial office spaces with private non-profit boards making the decisions about capital budget items involving their buildings. These two sectors’ unusual attention to reducing operational risk, their budget challenges, and their sometimes convoluted decision-making processes-often involving staff, government contracting, and boards or oversight agencies-require the understanding that AllFacilities brings to the table. Underneath ownership, we also help to organize all building types by use (e.g., “retail” versus “commercial office”), similarly to the other vertical sectors. We are experts in helping you to navigate the regulatory and bureaucratic barriers to bidding on these often lucrative contracts.
Our education database spans the broad sectors of Universities and Colleges, K-12 school districts, charter, parochial and private schools as well as pre-schools, day care center and nurseries. We examine colleges and universities to keep track of ownership and government funding as well as understanding if facilities decisions are centralized or decentralized. Because of the unique operating hours of these facilities, they are challenged with uneven use and sometimes high operating costs with uncertain revenue streams from year to year, so cost-cutting solutions, energy management solutions and infrastructure issues are an ongoing concern.
Real estate developers, commercial real estate brokers, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and private owners all own commercial office space to house tenants and to generate income. Some hold their properties for years; some are short-term investors. Many companies that own or manage a large quantity of real estate (over 1 million square feet) have their own facilities staff to oversee those operations. These owners include corporations such as utilities, technology companies, banks, insurance companies, and large manufacturers with off-shore plants and large numbers of sales and operations in North America. We will help you identify the largest owners in a geographic market and the largest investors with holdings in North America. We can contact facilities by class of building, location of building, size of building, age of building envelope and major renovations. Our experience in speaking the language of and addressing the needs of these demanding customers will help you better communicate the value you bring to their operations.
