“Preventative maintenance is a priority at Urban Renaissance Group because we understand the value of a well-maintained system. It protects the asset, increases building longevity, tenant retention, and lowers capital costs for our owners and tenants.”
Randy Bartl brings more than 30 years of construction, engineering, asset due diligence, and management experience to his role as Director of Engineering at Urban Renaissance Group (URG).
At URG, Randy applies his experience and intuition to evaluate building infrastructure during asset due diligence to create accurate capital plans.
