Business Services

We own a diverse portfolio of service businesses operating across real estate, logistics, facilities management and financial services. Within our residential real estate business, we have franchise arrangements with a number of Canadian brokerage brands and a joint venture with Berkshire Hathaway, which operates in the U.S. under the name Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Our facilities management business services government, military, industrial, financial services and utilities clients and oversees more than 300 million square feet of real estate. Our financial advisory business is a global investment bank specializing in real assets, with offices in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Our international contractor, Multiplex, offers a suite of construction services including design, program management and procurement, with operations in Australia, the Middle East, Europe, Canada and India. Our business is oriented toward major commercial properties, residential buildings, social infrastructure and mixed use developments. We have completed several landmark projects including One St. George Wharf in London, King Street Wharf in Sydney and Emirates Towers in Dubai.

Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions, Canada

We purchased Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions, a facilities management and real estate services firm, from Johnson Controls International in 2015. We have expanded the business beyond its original markets of Canada and Australia, opening a Hong Kong office and signing global contracts with three corporate clients in Q4 2015. In 2016, we entered the U.S. market through an acquisition.

Industrials

We own and operate businesses whose market positions and capital intensity create high barriers to entry and require significant operational and management experience. Our manufacturing businesses are low-cost producers of materials such as graphite electrodes and building and construction products. When investing in this space, we focus on businesses where we see opportunities to make meaningful operational improvements. Our Metals & Mining operations, located in Canada, include one of only two primary palladium and platinum mines in North America, and a limestone aggregates business serving large oil sands customers.

Our Energy businesses operate across the energy supply chain, engaging in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P), well services and drilling. In Western Canada, our E&P operations are oriented toward long-life, low-cost reserves located at shallow depths. In Australia, we focus on both high-return offshore oil projects and long-life, contracted natural gas reserves. Our contract drilling and well servicing business, also based in Western Canada, has been positioned to meet the changing needs of our upstream customers and to respond to technological advancements within the drilling space.

  • Maax Bath, Canada

    We acquired Maax Bath, a bath products manufacturer and distributor, in 2008, during a cyclical downturn and a period of operational transition at the company. Today, new products represent 35% of revenue compared to 7% at acquisition. Maax Bath has high barriers to entry due to its product innovation and manufacturing footprint, providing a competitive advantage. It is the market leader in Canada, and a leading bath products manufacturer and distributor in the U.S. as well.

  • Quadrant Energy, Australia

    Quadrant Energy was formed in 2015 after Brookfield, through a joint venture partnership, acquired Apache Corporation’s oil and gas assets for US$2 billion, a significant discount to replacement cost. Quadrant’s upstream, infrastructure and exploration assets make it a dominant player in Western Australia, and it is well positioned against commodity price movements, having contracted most of its oil and gas production on a long-term basis.
