Our Services Strategic Asset Management

Innovative strategies and services for affordable housing providers that optimise portfolios and meet strategic challenges.

An effective and forward-looking asset management strategy is vitally important for all affordable housing providers.

The sector is facing several significant challenges over the years and decades ahead which traditional asset management methods are unlikely to solve.

Whether you need a new asset management strategy designing and delivering from scratch or need advice on a specific aspect of an existing strategy, our team can help.

No matter what your situation, our unique approach is designed to help you optimise your portfolio, meet your strategic objectives and address priorities such as energy efficiency and decent homes standards.

Introducing Atlas

Atlas is an advanced and efficient tool which aids strategic asset management and decision-making for property portfolios.

Developed by RESAM, this unique tool makes use of financial and extensive non-financial metrics to score each individual property against a set of criteria.

It provides financial NPV and long-term cashflow insights for both individual property assets and the whole portfolio.  It allows the effect certain decisions may have on the social metric of your housing association to be measured accurately and easily.

When coupled with the expertise offered by RESAM’s team, the insights Atlas offers will allow you to confidently plot the best route to a better homes portfolio.

A tailored, effective and flexible process

The needs of each affordable housing provider are different. 

To ensure we can cater for your specific situation, we employ a proven process with built-in flexibility – allowing you to engage us to help with any aspect of the design or delivery of your asset management strategy.

As well as providing a holistic end-to-end service, we can also help you grade your portfolio, devise and deliver a decarbonisation strategy or assist with specific asset management issues.

At all times, our expert team will work transparently, collaboratively and provide expertise and advice that will help your organisation make confident decisions to address key priorities such as additionality, Net Zero obligations and improving the general standard of homes in your portfolio.
