Pillars of Management

  • Strata Management

    Our Canberra strata managers are industry leaders and are considered to be among the best minds in the application of strata legislation. We have a unique corporate structure, which enables our business to specialise in various disciplines of strata management. We can tailor our service offering to properties of all sizes and complexity; from boutique townhouse developments of just a few units, right up to multi level mixed use developments and stratum subdivisions.

  • Facilities Management

    Our strategic partnership with Colliers International Property & Asset Management enables us to deliver expert facilities management. Our model is to work hand in hand with qualified FM resources, coordinated via the Strata Manager, who remains the key point of reference for the convenience of our clients. Although this service is mostly applicable to larger buildings, there is an added benefit for boutique buildings that may wish to utilise this service from time to time for large- scale projects (such as painting etc.). The FM team can manage these projects from procurement to completion on an as needs basis.

  • Building Management

    Our service extends to on-site building management for larger buildings. Our building managers and “caretakers” are professional and courteous, capable of dealing with day to day management of the built environment including supervision of trades and monitoring essential building performance services. We ensure that our on site team are underpinned with a working knowledge of strata management principals via a thorough training and development programme.

A unique partnership of industry leaders

A ————— Vantage Strata represents a new era of strata management service here in Canberra. One which recognises multi unit apartment, townhouse and mixed use strata developments are more than just bricks and mortar; these properties are living, breathing communities, and their management requires more than a reactive approach, which is often not much more than a “mail box” relaying messages.

Vantage Strata is the result of a long collaboration over many years between Paul Powderly & Rupert Cullen (Colliers), Peter Maloney (Maloney’s Real Estate) and Chris Miller (strata professional of 10+ years). At various points throughout our extensive individual careers, we have all shared in the same frustrations at the lack of skill and expertise among the strata management industry in Canberra. Vantage Strata was created in response to our recognition of this gap.

We bring together Canberra’s most well respected property industry operators across multiple disciplines in order to address the total management of needs of strata titled properties in the ACT. We have more than 70 years of collective experience developing our knowledge of the property services sector, and we hold a commitment to exceptional customer service at our core. Our aim is to provide the high level of service that owners and Executive Committee’s deserve from their strata managers.

We have a unique corporate structure, which enables our business to specialise in various disciplines of strata management. We recognise that not all buildings are the same – some are complex vertical structures requiring significant expertise in managing assets and infrastructure, while other developments are less complicated. One size does not fit all, and our management model enables us to customise our service offering to suit you needs. We will listen to you, take the time to understand your property, and leverage our world-class personnel, systems and processes to manage the affairs of your Owners Corporation in a way that is unmatched in the ACT.

A ————— It is important to ensure that the right management structure is tailored to your property. Balancing the needs of our clients is critical to our approach, and we have carefully considered the challenges faced by the strata management industry in getting this right. We are confident that our solution addresses this need.

In our experience, many small to medium sized properties often suffer from lack of attention by their strata managers. In most cases, an experienced manager will look after a broad range of buildings, from the very small right up to the very large of 300 + units. Needless to say, the larger the building the more complicated it becomes to manage with lifts, mechanical plant, equipment and sophisticated building systems (security etc.).

It is not hard to see how a smaller building can slip through the cracks; simply put, the manager’s time is monopolised by the larger developments and the service needs of those “built environments”.

At Vantage Strata we believe that managing a complicated built environment is a unique skill set of its own, requiring the involvement of an expert facilities manager. The standard model requires that strata managers undertake this responsibility in addition to traditional strata management. Being a “jack-of-all-trades” is not conducive to providing the best of service in the specialised field of strata management.

In the case of large complicated developments, our management approach requires that responsibilities become “split” between strata and facilities management. This ensures that all of our strata management clients receive the same level of attention from their manager, who is able to get on with the job of providing sound advice and strategic direction to the committee and owners.

We have partnered with Colliers International Property & Asset Management to deliver expert Facilities Management. Although this service is mostly applicable to larger buildings, there is an added benefit for boutique buildings that may wish to utilize this service from time to time for large- scale projects (such as painting etc.). The FM team can manage these projects from procurement to completion on an as needs basis.
