Thinking innovatively, more integrated, and holistic will be crucial to remain relevant, both as a developer and property manager, in the future," says Hege Hidle Aaser, Director of Linstow Health.

Thinking innovatively

Linstow has extensive experience in developing communities desired for living, working, and socializing. The health initiative`s strategy revolves around constructing buildings, urban spaces, and neighborhoods that foster physical activity and inclusivity – catering to all individuals regardless of their circumstances or abilities.

- To achieve our vision of creating more communities like this in the future, we need to enhance collaboration and adopt a more goal-oriented approach. This entails cooperation with a large range of stakeholders and exploring innovative methodologies - from the initial early stages of development projects to the management of fully realized properties. Camilla's expertise promises to be a valuable asset realizing our aspirations for further sustainable growth, concludes Hidle Aaser.
