Management in the Built Environment

To achieve a built environment that performs well and delivers value to the end user in terms of spatial, functional and technical quality, cost effectiveness and sustainability, it is necessary to incorporate the interests, requirements and constraints of the various stakeholders in all phases of the lifecycle (from initiation to use) and at different scale levels (buildings, real estate portfolios, urban areas and markets). 

Real Estate Management therefore by definition has an interdisciplinary nature, combining the scientific fields of policy, geography and planning sciences, organisational studies, economics, law, mathematics and sociology with design and engineering – mainly architecture, urbanism and building technology.
