BuildingAssets provides services to help charities, voluntary and community organisations and public and private sector bodies to get the best from community buildings.
We aim to make your building work for you, so that it makes a positive contribution to your organisation’s financial health and your ability to achieve your aims and objectives by:
- Increasing your income and reducing your costs
- Staying on the right side of the law, avoiding legal fees and reputational damage
- Delivering high quality services and provide excellent customer care
- Being well placed for commissioning and contracting
- Being confident that your building offers a safe, pleasant environment for your users, staff and volunteers.
We understand the crucial role your building has in the financial sustainability and therefore the success and viability of your organisation. We are here to help you identify and seize the opportunities that your building offers, as well as dealing with any challenges it presents.
The portfolio of services below gives you an idea of what we can do, but as well as customising any of these services to meet your specific requirements, we will be happy to produce a totally tailor-made response to your needs.
We also offer services to public and private sector bodies, especially local authorities, which own, develop or manage community buildings, and can help with developing strategies and policies as well as adapting the services below to support the management of your community buildings.
Making your Asset Work Harder: Services aimed at increasing income and driving down costs.
Keeping it Legal: Support with premises-related legal issues, especially leases, health and safety, record keeping and data protection.

“I would like to thank you for assisting us, not only giving advice but also the hands on help you providing such as drafting and attending meetings with the council….. Without you we would have signed (lease) terms and conditions that were not favourable to our organisation.”
