Housed within our world-class Centre of Excellence for Workplace Solutions division, these services epitomize the diversity of service we offer occupiers. However, they are by no means the full extent of our umbrella offering. Workplace Solutions add-on services include, but are not limited to:

The model considers the entirety of an organisation’s workplace strategy across the full real estate portfolio of occupiers.

Programme & portfolio management

Profica provides programme and portfolio level services such as risk management, change management, time management and programme / portfolio level reporting.


A programme is a collection of projects related to some extent to a common objective. Programme Management is the effective management of that programme and provides the Client with a menu of professional services which integrates all required project activities into a comprehensive process of project definition and implementation and functions. Programme Management covers all aspects of the process including strategic planning, financing, concept and feasibility analysis, brief preparation, budgeting, risk analysis, procurement, design, construction, project completion, facility start up and ongoing operations and maintenance services. The specific needs of the Client and the project will determine the composition of the team’s organisation, expertise and the services required.

Portfolio Management is the management of a number of projects that don’t share common objectives but are for one particular client or user.
