Understanding and managing the hazards and threats to property portfolios
15:05 - 15:35
Senior Consultant

Facilities and Property Portfolio Managers managing diverse property portfolios, identifying credible hazards and threats to their properties and developing appropriate mitigation responses can be a challenge. Hazards and threats in the urban environment evolve, which requires a constant re-evaluation of the management and response to the risks posed to property portfolios. By developing and deploying a structured property portfolio risk register, managers can identify and record a range of hazards and threats, e.g., adverse weather or crime, that have the potential to affect the operation of their property portfolio or the safety and security of their staff, tenants or third parties. A structured risk register can be used to enhance managers’ strategic and operational decision-making, inform and underpin an estate-level business continuity programmes and security strategy and support the business case for new or improved mitigations to reduce identified risks to the property portfolio.

Key Takeaways:
• The value and benefits of developing and developing a property portfolio risk register for facilities managers and property portfolio managers.
• Techniques for developing a structured property portfolio risk register.
• Turning theory into practice: A case study.
