Elisabeth Ager studied architecture at the University of Innsbruck and completed further training in virtual design and construction as well as asset and portfolio management.
Architect Elisabeth Ager joined Wincasa in 2015. Today, she heads up the Strategy & Development team. What she appreciates most about her varied work is the holistic approach to a property.
What is your role at Wincasa?
We support owners by developing basic principles such as property strategies, feasibility studies and investment plans. Based on these, owners can make strategic decisions for their properties or real estate portfolios. In doing so, we take all of the owner's requirements into account. One current focus is on sustainability: we show how owners can make complex sustainability goals plannable and integrate and implement them into the ordinary maintenance of a property.
What fascinates you about this task?
As an architect, the focus of my work was on planning and execution. In my current role, I can support the entire life cycle of a property. It's always about managing economic, ecological and social aspects in a sensible and targeted way. This is what makes my job so varied, complex and exciting.
What is particularly important to you in your work?
In addition to the varied tasks, I appreciate the fact that I can be innovative and have the freedom to act. I also enjoy working with great colleagues in a flexible and diverse environment where fun is not neglected.
You mentioned the spirit of innovation. How does this flow into your work?
Thanks to my further training in Virtual Design & Construction and the development of new services, I am in close contact with start-ups. As a result, I constantly receive valuable input that can be used to improve processes using a combination of proven and new methods and tools or to develop new products. One example of this is the sustainable investment planning service, which incorporates a wide range of decision-making principles.
How do you recharge your batteries?
The best new ideas come to me during sporting activities in nature.
