Since its inception, APT has provided quality facilities management and leasing management services to its existing property portfolio. In addition, APT has grown its expertise in project management and property consultancy in Auckland’s social and affordable housing market through the development of under-utilised church land.

APT is helping address local and central government requirements for affordable housing, residential aged care and specialised housing for other at risk groups, including people living with disabilities. APT is providing social housing in partnership with Ministry of Social Development. (MSD) and local Methodist parishes as an Accredited Housing Provider under Community Housing Regulatory Authority (CHRA).

APT is involved in all stages of the development process – from inception, design and delivery of the projects, to ongoing support and maintenance for the newly tenanted properties. In addition, APT provides property management services to commercial property throughout Auckland through its links to the Methodist Trust Association (MTA).

By way of exceptional service delivery and strong, ongoing relationships with both clients and tenants, APT safeguards MTA’s property investments, ensuring that maintenance and refurbishment requirements and lessee issues are dealt with in a professional and timely manner.
