Ownership model

Our founding shareholders wanted to create a property vehicle that could jointly manage estate and property services.

Their aims for the business were to achieve:

  • cost savings, efficiencies and economies of scale across the full range of property management services
  • the chance to explore co-location and asset use for clients
  • greater resilience through collaboration, and sharing of resources and best practice
  • greater scope to drive local regeneration and growth
  • access to a centralised property database and helpdesk

We now offer our model to other public and private land and property groups, to help them maximise the value of their estates.

Collaborate to accumulate

Place Partnership's founding shareholders collaborated to create a joint property vehicle to jointly manage estate and property services. Initial objectives included:

  • Greater opportunity to achieve cost savings
  • Create efficiencies and economies of scale across property management services
  • Greater opportunity to explore co-location and use of assets for organisations
  • Integration and sharing of resources, greater resilience
  • Greater scope to drive local regeneration and growth
  • Access to a centralised property database and helpdesk

We now offer our model to other public and private land and property groups to help them maximise the value of their estates.

Place Partnership has played a pivotal role in both helping to establish and project manage the One Public Estate Programme in Berkshire. The Programme, one of the largest in the country, would not have achieved the funding and support it has without their input. Aside from their project management skills, their understanding of the potential opportunities available through property rationalisation across the public sector and how to realise them has been invaluable.
