PAS steps to achieve alignment

  • Monique Arkesteijn TU Delft, Architecture and the Built Environment

Abstract

The focus in this chapter is on the component steps of PAS (see Figure 5.1 and Figure 5.2). CRE alignment is achieved, as has been shown in chapter 4, if stakeholders can use PAS successfully. PAS is successful if the stakeholders are able to perform each step of PAS. I assume that the stakeholders can perform steps 1 (specifying decision variables), 3 (assigning weights) and 4 (determining design constraints) because these type of steps are part of other multi criteria decision analysis as well. However, it is not known if stakeholders are able to perform the new step 2 (determining preferences) and step 5a (design alternatives) and are willing to select the alternative with the highest overall preference score in step 6. Preferably, this new alternative has a higher overall preference score than the overall preference score in the current situation. However, if the boundary conditions are strict this is not always possible. PAS has been tested in three pilots.

This chapter has the following structure:

–– TU Delft pilot for the food facilities in paragraph 5.1;

–– TU Delft pilot for lecture halls in paragraph 5.2;

–– Oracle’s pilot for office locations in paragraph 5.3;

–– Pilot study comparison and conclusion in paragraph 5.4.

Author Biography

Monique Arkesteijn, TU Delft, Architecture and the Built Environment

In 1993 Monique was one of the first four graduate students of the Faculty of Architecture's Master track "Bouwmanagement & Vastgoedbeheer", the current department of Management in the Built Environment (MBE), at the Delft University of Technology. She graduated with distinction on ‘productivity and real estate, privacy and communication in offices’ at the "Rijksgebouwendienst" (Central Government Real Estate Agency). Her drive for real estate management lies in her focus on people and processes, which has guided her in her entire professional life.

She worked four years as consultant for Starke Diekstra / Arcadis and was involved in building projects in the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles. From 1998 to 2000 Monique was senior real estate consultant and partner of Diephuis Stevens, where she worked on projects ranging from 20 to 1000 workplaces with investments up to 50 million euros. During this period she obtained an Executive Master of Business Administration degree at TSM Business School (1998 – 2000). After working in practice for seven years, Monique travelled the world, and spent years in India, Brasil and La Gomera, Spain.

Since 2003 Monique works as assistant professor Real Estate Management for the department of Management in the Built Environment (MBE). In the beginning she combined her work as assistant professor with freelance consultancy. From 2010 she focused full time on her work at university.

Monique is a passionate teacher and loves interactive teaching. She is responsible for the BSc (Bachelor) course on briefing (350+ students) and has coordinated the Real Estate Management MSc (Master) course for many years. Monique specializes in corporate real estate alignment and divides her work in three main areas: first and foremost her work is about a design and decision approach to CRE alignment.

Her aim is to enhance CRE alignment by combining heart and head, when designing corporate real estate solutions. Next to that, she worked amongst others with Chris Heywood from the University of Melbourne on a systematic comparison of CRE alignment models in theory. Together with colleagues and graduate students she studies how CRE alignment is done in practice.

From 2013 to 2018 she was head of the real estate management section at MBE. With professor Alexandra den Heijer, Monique leads the Campus Research Team. Next to her work on CRE alignment she has focused on alignment for municipal and educational real estate. During the last 10 years she coordinated and/or participated in the think tank ‘Envisioning the Faculty of the Future’ (2009), Campus vision 2030 TU Delft (2010), Ownership of museum real estate (2012), Campus NL (2016), Campus tools (2017 - ongoing), European campus (2019). Monique has published more than 30 journal papers and books and received an "Outstanding paper award" for the paper Designing a preference-based accommodation strategy: A pilot study at Delft University of Technology in 2016 from the Journal of Corporate Real Estate.

Besides TU Delft Monique regards CoreNet Global as her second work family. CoreNet Global is the world’s leading association for corporate real estate with more than 11.000 members. She served on the Global Board from 2015 to 2019 after being involved in the Benelux chapter board as member and chairwomen for many years. Recently, together with Jose Zwerink, Monique started the foundation We- Women-Cooperate (WWC), which strives for sustainable progress for Indian women. By connecting people, ideas & products, WWC brings affordable and sustainable energy to India, giving women room for economic development.
