Moreover, we have a very large team of engineers and financial experts who keep our clients’ real estate assets in prime condition through property & facility management, technical maintenance, cleaning services and energy efficiency advisory services. The construction industry in all market sectors are in a boom (Up) cycle. This was sparked by low interest rates and strong occupier demand, which causes rental and sales prices to strengthen.
