      What we do/ Oxford & Cambridge Colleges/ Property and Facilities Management

      Property Management and Facilities Management

      Implementing the optimal asset plan, promptly and in a way that ensures the portfolio and properties remain safe and compliant, is our top priority.

      Jesus College, Cambridge

      30+ years and still going strong

      Creating a comprehensive property database will be the source of our key information, be it identifying critical events, operating the service charges, treasury, rent collection, planned preventative maintenance, or delivering and forecasting capital expenditure.

      During Covid-19 stepping up our tenant engagement has been the key to understanding occupational needs, as well as payment ability, smoothing income flows and reducing voids, as well as in rising markets maximising rent collection and rental growth.

      Protecting our clients’ returns is a matter of pride for us. We work diligently to take the pain away for our clients. By rolling up our sleeves and taking a proactive role, we reduce the surprises ensuring that any risk to income generation is identified early and mitigated.

      You will have peace of mind that your overall portfolio and individual property strategies are being implemented, whilst also protecting your reputational risk.

      From rescuing an injured barn owl, to a machete wielding member of the public in a basement, to delivering a landlord’s illegal occupation order to a number of trespassers, supported by 15 police officers… we’re pretty certain we have seen it all

      Building on the already strong tenant interaction, Bidwells has been able to guide the College through an extremely difficult pandemic year and ensure that any assistance the College was able to provide was given to those that needed it most. Regular reporting and updates to the College have provided the basis on which income could be maximised but with a suitably sensitive approach.
