InSitu Real Estate helps the extractive industry meet its real estate needs by providing a tailored and specialised approach.
Like any industry, the extractive sector needs to purchase real estate in order to keep operations going.
Todd Clark is the director and licensee in charge of InSitu Real Estate and, with his 15 years of experience, he knows a thing or two about helping the industry out with its real estate needs.
“I started my career as an intern at a national property valuation firm in 2008, working across a number of property sectors for approximately 10 years,” Clark told Quarry.
“I then moved into various property roles in advisory and corporate real estate with a specialisation in extractive industry, waste and resource management and industrial markets.”
Clark has an in-depth understanding of a broad range of markets and a drive to provide tailored property solutions to his clients.
This has resulted in Clark becoming a market leader in this specialist real estate sector.
InSitu takes pride in its deep industry knowledge and ability to provide a tailored, professional service.
The company has an extensive understanding of its clients’ needs and provides an innovative approach to achieve an outcome.
Clark has spent eight years in specialised markets, predominately the extractive industry, and enjoys helping his clients find the right solution for their needs.
“InSitu Real Estate is a boutique agency providing real estate services to the extractive industry, mining, concrete and asphalt, waste and resource management, industrial and infrastructure markets,” Clark said.
“Our experienced team provide complete real estate transactional services across the country, priding ourselves on our deep industry knowledge and an understanding of our client’s needs.
“We provide a full range of real estate services, including sales, leasing and royalty negotiation, transactional management and occupier advisory.”
With the extractive industry having enjoyed a buoyant past three years, demand for real estate has only increased.
“Continued federal and state government-backed infrastructure spending has seen the industry thrive,” Clark said.
Specifically, Clark cited the ARTC Inland Rail, the New South Wales Newell Highway and Western Sydney Airport projects as the catalysts for much of this success.
The ARTC rail route spans from Melbourne all the way up to Brisbane.
“These projects have spiked demand for housing and development both regionally and in the major cities,” Clark said.
“[But] some headwinds are being seen off the back of recent changes to the cost of borrowing, inflationary pressures on energy and fuel costs and the shortage of skilled labour.”
InSitu Real Estate understands that no two quarries are the same, and recommends looking at the needs of each through a different lens.
“Whether we’re looking at a single operation or an integrated ‘walk-in-walk-out’ portfolio, each have their own complexities and must be treated on their merits,” Clark said.
“When appointing an agent to assist you with the transaction, ensure they have a deep industry knowledge and an understanding of your needs.
“More importantly, it’s imperative you’re partnering with someone you can trust and that can tailor a strategy to ‘drive value’ on your terms.”
In order to drive more benefits for the extractive industry, InSitu Real Estate works with its sister company InSitu Advisory.
InSitu Advisory can provide complete property advice to private and corporate clients, financial institutions and funds and government sectors. •
