One of our company's primary functions is to act as the liaison between the ownership of our properties and our tenants. We maintain and handle all of the day-to-day activities that occur in and around the building, including the collection of rental payments, maintaining the property and the upkeep of the grounds. S. C. Herman & Associates, Inc. also employs its own cleaning crews to ensure the quality of the cleaning received by the tenants. We continue to be a "full-service" landlord that controls the quality of our buildings and services by committing our organization to operating to the highest of standards in our industry.
Spanning the entirety of our history of working with government agencies, we have met each and every financial and lease obligation for which we were responsible. Our track record speaks for itself.

This includes office, retail and industrial projects for public or private tenants.

In 1990 we began installing building automated controls at the properties we manage. The first large scale system we implemented (for a 500,000 square foot building) resulted in a >50% energy reduction within two years. Having gone through several generations of different BACS systems, we are able to provide the latest technology and best practices. We monitor space temperatures, humidity levels, carbon dioxide levels and occupancies to optimize a building’s efficiency without compromising tenant comfort.
