Making Commercial Property Maintenance a Solid TCO Investment

As with any business venture, managing a commercial property comes with a slew of pros and cons. Many of these are related to financial challenges. The TCO (total cost of ownership) is primary evaluation of profitability for a commercial property, and takes into account investments that may or may not have a high return. Property maintenance becomes a key player in determining TCO.

With a commercial property, the cost to keep things in working order might seem a total loss . The greater the expenditure on the working conditions of a business (the ownership, maintenance and operations), the higher the TCO will be. It will take more money to keep the property in working order than seems profitable, considering there will be little return on a physical location or structure. The opposite holds true for a lengthy business lifetime which requires little investment in maintenance; the result is lower TCO. 

Property maintenance becomes important, as it is a balance between expenditure to increase income. Operations cannot continue smoothly or be productive in terrible working conditions. However, TCO relies on more than just property maintenance. It requires attention to the landscape and lawn care. 

Rarely understood for its marketing and branding value, a company’s landscape can silently destroy TCO numbers when left unchecked. Continual maintenance and work to ensure a lush green campus and enjoyable scenery will inevitably lower TCO as the lifetime of a landscape investment is prolonged. The additional attention to changing motifs for special occasions or new product introduction can increase foot traffic and bolster company image with clients, consumer and partner relationships. This creates a higher return on the initial landscape and maintenance investment.
