Municipal assets and revitalization


Since its beginnings, DS CONSULTING has been participating in projects supporting local government units in the area of ​​municipal property management, and for several years also in the area of ​​revitalization.

1. Diagnosis and policy of property management

The basis for effective property management is a comprehensive inventory and appropriate classification of property components, i.e. an assessment of how individual assets are used in the light of the market situation and the formulation of an effective property management strategy.

Local governments have and manage complex resources of communal property. These include: apartments, commercial premises, a whole range of social and cultural infrastructure, hard infrastructure in the form of roads, bridges, water supply and sewage networks, as well as undeveloped land. This property is subject to constant changes due to ongoing investment processes.

How can we help?

  • We will evaluate the property management process in local government units and identify the entities involved in the process.
  • We formulate recommendations regarding the organization of the management process in local government units and the principles of classification of property components.
  • We will help you formulate the rules and policy of property management.
  • We will help to make a pilot classification of selected assets in accordance with the adopted methodology and policy.


2. Location analysis

Some investment decisions require in-depth analyzes related to the involvement of own real estate as well as identification and evaluation of available alternative solutions.

How can we help?

  • We will identify and balance the client’s needs (type and size of investments, e.g. office space for the Office or organizational units, space or cubage for various types of municipal and social services, etc.)
  • We will carry out the necessary market analyzes regarding the availability of alternative solutions as well as the potential demand for new services.
