NAI Estate Fellows conducts audits of operating costs in commercial real estate

Audit is a useful and extremely effective control tool used to improve the company’s operations. It is also a technique often used on the real estate market, allowing the verification of the legal, technical and financial condition of real estate. At NAI Estate Fellows, audits are carried out by qualified financial experts with great experience in the real estate industry.

Financial audit is one of the tools helpful in assessing the correctness of cost allocation and the profitability of investments. Using this method, it is possible to make a favorable business decision, choosing the most effective and, at the same time, the most economical option.

The purpose of conducting such an audit is to analyze the costs incurred by the company, e.g. for property maintenance, and to verify their legitimacy, as well as compliance with the established budget. In addition, this process allows the detection of possible irregularities in financial management and the development of corrective actions in this regard. It is a useful tool in optimizing your rental policy and property management.

Due diligence in general is subjecting an enterprise to an exhaustive analysis in terms of its commercial, financial, legal and tax condition. Such audit is aimed at assessing the current situation of the property and determining the existing and potential risks associated with the planned capital transaction, which may be, for example, the purchase of a building.

Due diligence analysis should ensure identification and estimation of the risk related to the future investment, determination of the specificity of concluded contracts, including the cost structure, market, suppliers and recipients, development of a negotiation strategy with the contractor, and increasing the chances of a successful transaction.

Financial due diligence, i.e. a detailed audit of the operating costs of the Atrium International Business Center building, conducted by financial experts from NAI Estate Fellows in 2019, helped the investor in making the decision to buy the office building.

Thanks to NAI Estate Fellows, another Yasumi beauty salon will be opened in Topaz, the office building in Mokotów district

A new beauty salon of Yasumi chain is going to be opened June this year in Warsaw, Mokotów district. It will be situated on the ground floor of Topaz, the office building constituting a part of the Nefryt&Topaz complex, located at Domaniewska Street. The area of the beauty salon will be 130 square metres, due to the agreement signed in December 2019. The tenant was represented by Rafał Misiak from the Warsaw division of NAI Estate Fellows.

Yasumi is a chain of more than a hundred exclusive beauty parlours located all over Poland. The brand offers a broad range of services, inspired by Far East culture and including cosmetic treatments, therapies and wellness services. The parlours operate on the basis of franchise agreements and they employ a large group of regularly trained professionals. They all use professional private label cosmetic preparations and offer free consultations to the customers. The Far East interior decorations and aura ensure both relaxation as well as plenitude of sensory experiences during treatments.

At the end of last year, we successfully finalised the transaction between owner of the Nefryt&Topaz complex and one of the Yasumi chain franchise holders. I am convinced that the parlour is going to have a lot of customers and the building will gain another interesting location to spend time in. Each new facility offering useful services in an office building is a great advantage both for the employees of the building, as well as residents in the nearest vicinity – says Rafał Misiak, Head of the NAI Estate Fellows Lease Department.

Nefryt&Topaz is a modern, compact, A-class office building situated in the Mokotów district. Its unique design merges in harmony of glass, steel and wooden elements. Thanks to large windows, the office areas are very well lit. The building has tilt and turn windows, raised floors, air-conditioning with the humidity control function, ventilation system, 24-hour security as well as a modern BMS system. The building is located in a dynamically developing, modern business district of the capital city. The complex ensures a great and fast accessibility of public transportation – the underground station is 900 m away, the tram lines – 200 m, the bus stop – 200 m, Veturilo bike station – 350 m. It takes approximately 10 minutes by car to reach the centre of Warsaw and the Fryderyk Chopin Airport. Right next to the building there is one of the largest shopping malls – Galeria Mokotów.

Record-breaking outcome of the e-waste collection in the real-estate sector – the recapitulation of the 2019 edition

This year’s edition of the campaign called „Get rid of unnecessary kilowatts”, held in Warsaw and the surrounding areas from May 27 to June 14 in 97 commercial buildings allowed collecting almost 27 tons of e-waste. The campaign covered mainly office buildings, but there were also a few buildings of other kind. The result achieved turned out to be almost threefold higher than a year before. Ten companies operating on the commercial real-estates sector participated in the campaign: BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland, Capital Park Group, Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield, Golden Star Estate, Golub GetHouse, Knight Frank, JLL, NAI Estate Fellows and Platan Group.

In accordance with the idea of the campaign, which has been organised annually since 2012, the income from the utilisation of collected items and retrieved raw materials is assigned for charity. This year’s edition was held by the EKON „Disabled for the Environment” Association, which was also the beneficiary of this year’s campaign. The funds generated on the sale of plastic and recyclable materials will be assigned for the statutory activities of the organisation, namely social and vocational rehabilitation of the disabled. The Association estimates that income generated from the collected e-waste will amount to approximately PLN 30 thousand.

„The opportunity to co-operate with you was a great challenge for us, for the reason of the territorial reach of the campaign, but we were happy to undertake such challenge, in order to expand our experience and vocational competence of our employees. The EKON Association is a non-profit organisation, which creates jobs for the persons with disabilities who may suffer from social exclusion, including for persons with mental illnesses. We are happy that we have stood up to the challenge and additionally we have obtained financial aid. The funds generated during the waste collection will help us continue the accomplishment of our statutory tasks, therefore we would like to express our gratitude for your trust and the offered possibility to work hand in hand in this campaign.” – Jacek Czuryło, the co-ordinator of the e-waste collection on the part of EKON Association, says.

„We are happy that once again we teamed up within the real-estate sector for such a good cause. This time we have managed to expand the reach of our campaign by other buildings, which number increased to 100. Along with the EKON Association, which organised the collection in a very professional and efficient manner, we have managed to remove from the buildings almost 27 tons of e-waste, which is going to be recycled. It is our contribution – as a real-estate sector – to the practical accomplishment of the “less waste” idea. The e-waste collection has always been and remains a very important campaign for us, because we merge the education of the tenants and their staff in the aspect of environment – friendly attitude with the promotion of helping others.” – Izabela Miazgowska, Director of the Real-estate Management Department at Knight Frank, says.

This year, the campaign has been carried out in a new formula – #ElectroTrashChallenge, which refers to the popular social media campaign #TrashChallenge”. The EKON Association gathered the data about the quantity of e-waste in the individual buildings, and thanks to such information, we have managed to indicate for the first time the winner, namely a building that has contributed with the highest quantity of waste for recycling. The leader of the #ElectroTrashChallenge was Rondo 1 office building. A round of applause for the tenants of the building, who took part in our campaign. 

The „Get rid of unnecessary kilowatts” campaign is related to the celebration of the International Earth Day. Thanks to this initiative, the employees of the buildings in the Warsaw area may dispose in the assigned places of unnecessary electric equipment, such as computers, TV sets, telephone sets, batteries, audio equipment or small size electric household appliances. The idea of the campaign is to educate and promote the recycling of e-waste.

NAI Estate Fellows modernises the Kupiec Poznański building.

A modern design of the entrance and the elevators’ hall, a comfortable relaxation zone on the outdoor terrace and a stylish mural on one of the external walls – these are some of the modernisations already in place in the Kupiec Poznański building, and there are some more to come until the end of this year.

For the Kupiec Poznański building 2018 started with changes: the office entrance from the side of the Strzelecka Street was completely modernised. The walls and floors were covered with modern, white sinter, which provides a very nice contrast with a wall covered with moss. The elevators’ hall and toilets on the 5th floor were also tiled with white sinter and illuminated with modern LED lighting. Four out of five building elevators were replaced.

The refurbishment of the entire hall on the 5th floor of the building was completed in June. The walls were repainted and the floor got a new stylish carpet, which improves the comfort of the users of offices. The new look of the hall has got one more element – black and white posters of Szymon Brodziak from the Brodziak Gallery, enclosed in beautiful frames.

The summer season at the Kupiec Poznański building was opened at the newly arranged outdoor terrace situated on the IInd floor. The new relaxation zone is equipped with comfortable sofas, chairs and garden benches, which ensure an ideal environment either for a moment of rest or a business meeting. For everyone who enjoys eating outdoors, part of the terrace was equipped with comfortable tables and chairs. The terrace also has several beautiful plants, lanterns and sunscreens.

The three-storey-high wall of the office part of the building has become very colourful. It is now decorated with a huge mural, which refers to the modern and business-like nature of the building tenants – several of the companies, which have their offices in the Kupiec building work in the IT sector. A few offices of the tenants were also subject to a thorough rearrangement – they were all completed with the use of cutting-edge solutions and in accordance with the latest trends.

In order to meet the requirements of the tenants and the customers, and to help protect the environment, the Kupiec Poznański building has increased the number of bicycle racks, it marked clearly the parking places for bikes and applied high-definition monitoring, improving the safety of parked bikes. The entire parking area was marked anew – the elevators, the entrances and the directions of exit are now very visible, which facilitates the navigating in the building.

The modernisation plans are being accomplished and the new ones are being developed –until the end of this year, the Kupiec Poznański building will undergo yet a few significant changes. Soon the modernisation of the 3rd floor and the entrance from the side of the Wrocławska Street is going to begin. An additional elevator will be installed and an elegant reception desk will be added. Soon the commercial part will also have a novelty – a co-working zone, which will merge the best qualities of the Kupiec building: an excellent location, beautiful views and people.

„We appreciate a lot the trust of the building’s Owner, who handed it over to be managed by our company. The scope of our services related to the object includes the operational management, financial services, as well as marketing services. In the coming months we will follow up on the started modifications and optimisation of the office building and the mall, to provide even better services to the tenants and their customers” – Patrycja Masiarek, the Head of NAI Estate Fellows Branch in Poznań, says.

The modernisation of the Grunwald Business Park

The Grunwald Business Park is an office and warehousing object situated in the industrial part of the Grunwald district, at the crossing of the Kamiennogórska and the Jeleniogórska Streets. It is an excellent location, as the Grunwald district is in the western part of Poznań, which has both a very good connection with the ring road (S11, A2), as well as with the city centre (also with the use of urban means of transport). Another advantage of this location is the proximity of the airport.

The entire object that belongs to the Park Company includes almost 9 ha of land, with available for rent warehouses, production halls and office space of the total area of approximately 13 thousand m2. Several companies have been operating there for years. Since the purchase of the object by the Company, both the halls, as well as adjacent offices have been modernised. The office space is adjusted to the specific needs of both small- and medium-sized companies, as well as large enterprises. Apart from the standard of the office space finishing, an important advantage of this object is a large number of parking places for both vehicles, as well as bicycles, for the tenants and the customers alike.

Another project of the Park Company was the modernisation of the office building constructed at the beginning of the 70s. It has three over ground and one underground storey. The facade of the building was modernised and the interiors were refurbished with the use of modern devices and installations. NAI Estate Fellows Poznań Sp. z o.o. acted as a consultant of the Company at the development of the project. The modernisation comprised the installation of two elevators, mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery, the air-conditioning and the IT network of 6a category. The building meets now the energy-related requirements stipulated in the standards for 2020. On the ground floor, there is a common reception desk and a canteen, and on the -1 level, there are facilities for the bikers (showers, changing rooms).

In the course of its operation, the Park Company has demonstrated that its mission is to provide an ideal workplace to its tenants. NAI Estate Fellows Poznań Sp. z o.o. supported the owner in the commercialisation process and a high quality of modernisation works was ensured by the general contractor – ImerCon Sp. z o.o. company. We are anxious to see the next projects to be accomplished on the remaining available area.

The building was prepared for the tenants in a very flexible manner, allowing for the dividing of the area into modules of any size. The project turned out to be very successful – until the construction works were finished, the whole area has already been leased. The tenants appreciated both the style and high quality of the interiors, as well as the flexible approach to their needs. – Justyna Wasiak, Manager in charge of lease and sale at the Poznań branch of NAI Estate Fellows, directly responsible for the commercialisation of the building, says.
