Judy Purviance-Anderson of Cushman & Wakefield’s Denver office was recently featured in an article by the Colorado Real Estate Journal. Judy discusses the evolution of property management through her own experiences as General Manager of 1670 Broadway, a Class A downtown Denver office high-rise.
Adapting to the ever-changing world of property management has been key to Judy’s success. She shares the three most significant areas of change she has witnessed during her 33-year career:
- Security: According to Judy, “Security is a 24/7 responsibility, and there is a ripple effect that is much more global.” Having an emergency response plan in place that will allow building staff to remain in control and keep tenants and visitors calm during an emergency situation is crucial.
- Energy Efficiency: Energy efficiency is more important than ever to owners of real estate. In 2013, 1670 Broadway implemented an energy management and automation system, allowing building engineers to make significant operational changes. Since the implementation of this technology, 1670 Broadway’s ENERGY STAR® score has risen one point every month.
- Reporting: “I love to analyze what the building is doing,” says Judy. “This building is a living, breathing being, and it changes every day.” Understanding the metrics allows building staff to improve areas as needed, maximizing results for the client.
