Sustainable investment returns
Collegiate AC provides a range of services for investors to help them appraise a student accommodation project and ensure it has, or develops, a viable and sustainable market positioning, and so delivers their target returns into the future. These are substantial investments that benefit from expert support.
The market for student accommodation is becoming increasingly sophisticated with students and parents becoming more aware of choice. The decision to rent in a scheme involves many thousands of pounds and, as in any other purchase in their life, consumers are increasingly looking at the detail and alternatives open to them. In this context it is essential that schemes have a compelling buying proposition.
Collegiate can assist in appropriately specifying and positioning a scheme within its economic and planning constraints. The objective is to ensure a scheme is optimised so a sustainable investment emerges that caters for student needs into the future and has a competitive edge for its positioning. We can also reposition and enhance existing schemes.
In addition to design, a scheme's service infrastructure must also be fit for purpose. Conventional systems often do not work in student accommodation blocks and can be expensive to fix retrospectively or leave the scheme at a disadvantage. This goes for every aspect of the scheme, through from for example fire detection systems to specialist broadband services in what is one of the most demanding user groups that exists.
So if you are an investor wanting the reassurance that your student accommodation investment has been appropriately appraised, positioned, specified, and its design optimised, so it can grow sustainably into the future, Collegiate AC can create value for you.
