Real Estate & Construction

“Everyone is talking about Smart Cities. But someone has to build them. In order for companies in the real estate & construction industry to realise their social visions, they need talents who are not afraid of heights.”

The real estate and construction industry is under pressure to change on many fronts: urbanisation and re-urbanisation are constantly changing the rules of the game for investment cycles and capital market movements. The task of continuously enhancing the performance of real estate is correspondingly demanding. This is especially the case since every financing project and every project development must be viewed in the context of new topics: for example in the case of rapid urban district developments with co-working spaces or in the networking of housing, industry and trade in the “Smart City”.

“Who plans before the beginning of construction with a digital twin?”

More than ever, this requires professionals, especially at the level of TOP decision-makers, who have a keen sense for the profitability and performance of a portfolio and keep an eye on the “big picture” of market development. Just as important are managers and specialists who confidently master all phases of asset management as well as the efficient operation of real estate during its life cycle.
With the support of the LAB Practice Real Estate & Construction, you will strengthen your company with TOP executives and specialised experts, who achieve results with leadership talent, resilience and intercultural and communicative competence.
