SSUD13-212: Property Management


This subject will be structured to assist student learning across three component areas. The first is that property management is about enhancing the environmentally responsible performance of buildings in the areas of importance to the investing/occupying organisations. These roles and responsibilities of the property manager in this context will be discussed with a primary emphasis on commercial property. The second theme is that of property management being people focussed. The complementary subject of Corporate Real Estate provides synergies which investigate the principles of life-cycle costs, value to the business plan of an organization and functionality/fitness for purpose. For this models are presented as heurisms, and the links so identified enable integrated learning development. The third theme considers `triple bottom line' principles where investment returns are appraised together with sustainability and social issues as an ethical responsibility within aspirations of a responsible carbon sensitive Australian economy.
