Space Analytics works principally in the contexts of real estate litigation and asset management. A spin-off of a university R&D group 25 years ago, our mission in exercising special diligence is twofold:
1) to diagnose spatial-visual architectural, urban and site design and configuration problems that have led to functional and economic problems and show how to solve them;
2) to help clients make better decisions about the design and location of buildings and places.
There are real estate problems that can’t be fixed by better marketing, changed management, image treatments, different users or a better economy. Sometimes the result is litigation, sometimes disposition, sometimes redesign and sometimes a second opinion is useful. Our experience and our court tested, scientific/peer-reviewed and award winning spatial modeling approach has been applied to a variety of building and property types to detect and diagnose serious functional/economic problems.
With training in architecture from University College London, business from the Wharton School and real estate analysis from Ulster University, Dr. Brown has the needed multidisciplinary skills to provide precise, objective and insightful analysis of how design and configuration affect multiple aspects of real estate.
Dr. Brown’s analyses have led to changes in recognizing substantial impairment of access, the highest damages award in architectural copyright, eight digit premises liability awards, and redevelopment plans leading to large property value increases. His analysis of problem shopping centers was on American Public Radio, his expert witness testimony in a public forum case was on Court TV and several articles have won awards in both real estate and architecture.
