Abacus Property Management PL was appointed by Sport Singapore to run the Recovery Centre Altitude House (RCAH) starting from 15 Jan 2018. RCAH is a 56-bedder facility. The running of the RCAH included the programming of access cards, preforming check-in and check-out services for overseas and local national athletes, and to maintain a high level of cleanliness of the premises.
In a short period since Sport Singapore has appointed Abacus Property Management PL, we found them to be a responsible Facility Management Company. Their team has seamlessly managed the RCAH, checked in a few sport teams and liased with our National Sport Associations well.
Their Executive Director Royston attends important meetings with us and provides strong oversight for their area of work.

Over the years we have engaged a couple of different management companies. Abacus Property has shown, hands down, why they are so highly regarded among real estate professionals. We have been pleased and impressed by the breadth of knowledge of each person we have interacted with there. We have deeply appreciated the ready communication, something we found sorely lacking at other management companies we've engaged.
We know that when we contact Abacus Property, our concerns or questions will be addressed quickly and thoroughly and we will be treated with patience and courtesy throughout. We can't imagine turning to anyone else to manage.

Although there were some minor incidents of service disruptions during the first two months, the dedication and diligence of the site team at Sunglade Condominium enabled the transition to be in good order. After 7 months of service, the site team from Abacus achieved a good performance level with potential to attain a higher score.
One other good aspect of Abacus worth mentioning in this document is the Senior Management representatives who are not stationed in Sunglade also demonstrate eagerness to lend support to the site team to boost morale.
I am happy to recommend to any MCST who considers appointing a new Management Agent to also consider Abacus.

In the first week of taking over in the management of the estate, during this critical transformation period, Abacus effectively took control of all our existing contractors without any issues, uncovered discrepancies with the manpower of the Security Guards, proposed numerous preventive measures and reviewed our existing SOPs.
Abacus managed to a surplus of 3.4% of our operating budget through better negotiating contracts skills, efficient management and cost savings in the rejuvenation of an ageing estate.
It is a testimony to their slogan, “Adding value to your real estate”. A promise that can be seen and is fulfilled everyday without doubt.
