    Industrial-Specific Property Management Topics

    • Industrial property management

    • Financial performance in industrial real estate
    • Overview of maintenance programs
    • Property management considerations
    • Market trends and drivers in industrial properties

    The industrial sector is growing rapidly, thanks in part to the popularity and the expansion of the Panama Canal. While on the surface, it may seem that managing industrial properties is similar to managing office or retail properties, operational characteristics and unique needs of industrial tenants require a real estate managers to develop a slightly different skill set. This new workshop will cover the basics of industrial property management within these six topics areas.
