A lot goes into the running of a strata building, but who’s who on your management team? We explore three managers who are key in every strata scheme.
One of the benefits of owning strata is having so many people looking after your property. Strata schemes are run by a body corporate, but there are also managers who take care of certain parts of the operation.
There are three major managers in a strata scheme and each has a critical role in making sure your building runs like a well-oiled machine.
- Building manager – This person is responsible for more day-to-day operations. Things like supervising contractors, scheduling maintenance and repairs, and providing services such as security and cleaning all fall within the building manager’s duties.
- Facilities manager – Facilities managers tend to oversee bigger projects, such as a re-painting, the renovation of a common area or the installation of a swimming pool. The facilities manager needs to work closely with the building manager and the strata manager to ensure everything goes to plan as far as budget and scheduling.
- Strata manager – The strata manager works directly under the owners corporation, tending to things like banking, administration and legal matters. When a contractor needs to be paid or levies are due, it falls to the strata manager.
Together, these managers work together to plan and execute a strategy for the care and improvement of a building.
