A successful year for the BFI Office Building PM with Eston

A good place to work is a good place to rent

A successful year is behind the BFI Office Building, located on Fehérvári út, which is managed by Eston since 2013. As a result of the owner’s efforts, as well as due to the highlighted leasing activity a market average level of occupancy is reached, representing nearly 100% increase in tenancy.

Owing to the recent remodeling and development works in the house, tenants may conduct their businesses in a lively and active building. In order to present such effectiveness, the new property manager needed to come up with novelties that support and add color to the the daily lives of the workers and boost the activity of the community in the building.

“We endeavored, beyond the nowadays commonly implemented selective garbage collection and energy saving methods, to introduce new ideas that stop the monotony or contribute to the daily operation of the companies. In the recent year we successfully expanded the building’s service range by features that connect to the office-work (state of the art, fully equipped meeting room available by the hour, carwash) and by a special CSR field as we organize blood donation several times a year. Nevertheless, we regularly host cultural events and other gatherings in the renovated lobby area.” summarized Dániel Pintér, Head of PM at Eston.

Adorján Salamon, CEO of Eston, is also satisfied with the accomplishments, and believes that “The leasing activity could not be this effective in the BFI House if, besides taking over the property management, we did not concentrate on the improvement of tenant satisfaction as well. With our team work we managed to well exceed 80% occupancy in the building, which, to the great satisfaction of the property owner, is above the market average for the first time.”
