Saggart Management CLG.
In 2013 Smith Property Management was invited to tender for the management of Millrace in Saggart.
This development was built by WM Neville & Sons and consists of 350 units made up of, 79 apartments, 221 duplexes and 20 houses.
Following a detailed tendering process, Smith Property Management was engaged by the board.
Since taking over this estate Smith Property Management have undertaken a Full Energy Audit of the development. Looking back on previous years expenditure for electricity Costs and indeed electrical repairs there were substantial outgoings on this budget line items year on year.
Following a full audit a retro fit option was made to the lighting in the common areas of the blocks with new LED lighting installed and all emergency lighting was separated out to reduce the repairs necessary on a year on year basis.
It’s estimated that the Management Company will save €8923.87 per annum on Repairs and Electricity Costs giving a Payback period of 1.45 years based on the costs of the installation.
Furthermore, owners and residents are very pleased with the improved level of maintenance and presentation seen in the grounds landscaping.
Kevin Synot – Director Testimonial
“In 2013 we changed our managing agent to Smith Property Management after a comprehensive tendering process. We wanted an agent we felt had the knowledge and experience to manage the issues with 350 apartments, duplexes and townhouses.
Smiths have already made a hugely positive impact on the board, the members and the development.
Already they have brought considerable cost savings, introduced energy efficient initiatives and delivered improvements onsite to the development.
The level of interaction with the property manager has been very professional and a future financial and operational plan is being laid out for us.
The staff at Smith’s are very courteous which has been very well received by our members. The recent AGM was very well run and the presentation and explanations to members was top class.
To date we are very happy with our choice of agent”
