Technical real-estate asset manager

Technical real-estate asset manager


Technical real-estate asset managers are responsible for preserving their portfolio. They are notably in charge of scheduling building improvement works and organising maintenance across their entire portfolio, whether comprised of housing, tertiary, commercial, private or public properties.

To perform these duties, it is important that they are able to conduct or order the conducting of diagnostics on the structures in order to resolve the building’s main pathologies as well as to understand the maintenance specificities of heating and cooling systems.

To help to develop skills in all aspects of this trade, ESTP offers a certifying course comprised of 4 modules which will enable participants to rapidly become operational, over a short period of time, with the help of our expert lecturers, concrete examples and participant interaction.
