One Works Technical Consultancy (OWTC) is born

From the meeting between our Managing Partners, and AAKHON, a leading company in the study of solutions for the analysis and evolution of real estate and transport infrastructure, the new company is born in a joint venture OWTC srl to better serve our clients in the Italian, and wider European Market.

One Works, one of the leading Italian architecture firms with an international profile, are proud to be extending our range of support to clients in Italy and the wider European Market.

From the meeting with AAKHON, a company at the forefront of the study of solutions and tools for the analysis and evolution of buildings and transport infrastructure, the joint venture One Works Technical Consultancy (OWTC), aims to offer Integrated Technical Services for real estate development and portfolio asset management by assisting investors, developers and operators at all stages of acquisition, design, development and operations.

From a wide range of appraisal services to thorough urban planning and real estate diligence, audits and audits, to technical / economic feasibility studies and procurement consultancy, OWTC's offer covers every single aspect relating to real estate and infrastructure development.

Leonardo Cavalli, CEO of One Works SpA: "As Architects we want to develop our understanding on the lifespan of buildings and infrastructure to offer our clients a vision on their performance with time. Europe is a built environment and we recognize the long-standing value of existing assets. The development of architectural projects, in the areas in which our practice is moving, increasingly requires a complexity of analysis and management of real estate assets, whose accuracy and precision can be decisive in defining design choices. Being able to carry out this analysis directly, thanks to the involvement of a new team of top experts in the sector, guarantees our practice - and our customers - another level of quality. Up until now we have outsourced this part of the project cycle and so now, this is an interesting extension of our activities".

Massimiliano Caruso, CEO of AAKHON and Managing Partner of newco OWTC Srl: "From the union between the innovative experience of our team in the sector and the important national and international dimension of One Works, we have been able to develop a new range of consulting services, in line with the important changes in the sector and able to satisfy the new and articulated requests of the operators. Furthermore, being able to integrate AAKHON's experience in the field of sustainability and the use of digital technologies, with the One Works architecture and engineering design approach represents a significant added value to accompany, with new ideas and new business models, each real estate operator. With OWTC we want to offer new values, for a new value, to be attributed to each real estate asset".

What moves OWTC is a market that offers great potential for growth and interesting spaces of innovation in terms of approach. In only the five main European countries, the turnover of real estate services is estimated at € 495 billion (source: Scenari Immobiliari - REVALO).

The importance of valorisation in all phases of the life of an asset involves the transformation of property management, which includes new players and requires an ever-increasing degree of skills and specialization that, for investors, is cheaper to outsource.

With this in mind, the added value that can be generated by a company like OWTC, with high characteristics of specialization and agility and efficiency in the execution of services, and at the same time a deep knowledge of the markets in which it moves accompanied by an international vision, is particularly interesting.
