  • Contracts – controlling cost and quality
  • Compliance – getting the balance right for risk, health and safety
  • Responsive maintenance – caring for properties to protect asset value
  • Managing stock and investment – maintaining and improving the asset portfolio
  • Technology and data – driving service improvements
  • People – personal development and working together to deliver better outcomes
