The BIM Berliner Immobilien Management GmbH , short BIM is a wholly owned subsidiary of the country Berlin worked as a German real estate service. On behalf of the State of Berlin, she is responsible for the valuation, management and optimization as well as for the rental and sale of state-owned real estate, including the administration of the state's real estate-related special assets . The managed real estate portfolio comprises more than 5000 state-owned buildings and land (as of December 31, 2019).
BIM was founded in January 2003 to centrally manage the office buildings of the State of Berlin. In 2015, the company also took over the tasks of the Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin , which until then had been responsible for the sale of land owned by the state. The Senate Department for Finance acts as the supervisory authority , with State Secretary Vera Junker chairing the Supervisory Board .
The company was founded in January 2003 in order to manage the office buildings of the State of Berlin more efficiently and centrally and to support budget consolidation. Until 2003 there was no uniform real estate and occupancy data for the buildings used by the State of Berlin. Without this data, an overarching requirements planning for the accommodation of public service employees was not possible. Despite the high vacancy rate in the state-owned properties, space was rented externally. In addition, a renovation backlog had accumulated over the years.
On January 1, 2001, the State of Berlin founded Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin GmbH & Co. KG as the sole shareholder . The real estate fund was responsible for the sale of state-owned real estate that was not required for its own purposes and was merged with BIM Berliner Immobilienmanagement GmbH on March 1, 2015.
Tasks and way of working
BIM manages the real estate of the state of Berlin. The legal basis for this is the law on the establishment of a real estate special fund of the State of Berlin (in short: SILB ErrichtungsG) of December 4, 2002, together with the subsequent changes and the agency agreement. With the decision of the Berlin House of Representatives on October 31, 2002, the set starting portfolio was to be "expanded to include all suitable buildings in the state".
Following the decision of the House of Representatives on October 31, 2002, the State of Berlin introduced a new building management model, the so-called tenant-landlord model, with which BIM works. The tenant-landlord model means that the management of public real estate and land "is organizationally bundled and the users have to pay rent for the use of real estate-related services". For BIM Berliner Immobilienmanagement GmbH, this means that the state-owned institutions such as the senate administrations, court buildings, police stations, etc. rent the state-owned buildings and pay the state, on behalf of BIM, rent. The provision of the rooms to be rented is calculated according to a fixed size, the AllA room. This states that each employee's office should not exceed 11 m² for economic reasons.
With this way of working, BIM was able to save a total of 278 million euros for the State of Berlin by the end of 2013.
Real estate assets
BIM Berliner Immobilienmanagement is responsible for five real estate assets:
- Real estate special fund of the State of Berlin (SILB)
- The SILB consists of state-owned properties that are used by the State of Berlin for its public administration.
- Special Fund for Services of General Interest (SODA)
- The special fund for public services and non-operational properties of the State of Berlin was formed on July 1, 2017 in order to secure real estate that the state does not currently use, but would like to keep for public services , and to further develop them in the future.
- Two trust assets (THV)
- The two trust assets of the companies in the Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin comprise the state-owned real estate that is not required by the State of Berlin.
- Rental assets
- The rental assets of the State of Berlin include privately owned real estate that the State of Berlin has rented to cover the space requirements of the public administration due to a lack of suitable land in the state property. It is managed in trust by BIM as part of a business agency.
As of December 31, 2019, BIM managed more than 5000 buildings and properties in the state of Berlin:

Special Fund for Services of General Interest (SODA)
The law on the establishment of a special fund for public services and non-operational property of the State of Berlin (SODA Errichtungsgesetz - SODA ErrichtungsG) of March 17, 2017 created a special fund supplementing the SILB. The SODA is to be kept separate from the remaining assets of the State of Berlin, its rights and liabilities. It should include state-owned land that is currently not required for the purposes of the State of Berlin, but is also not to be sold. The Senate Administration for Finances , which is also in charge of supervision, decides on allocations and withdrawals ; the management is incumbent on BIM.
Pursuant to Section 2 (1) of the SODA Establishment Act, properties can be assigned to the special fund that
- a) are required for the purposes of future services of general interest within a period of approximately ten years (BIM category services of general interest 2 ),
- b) for strategic or economic considerations, should remain the property of the state despite the fact that there is no operational necessity (BIM category marketing perspective 2 ),
- c) are encumbered with a heritable building right (BIM category hereditary building rights ).
For example, the following properties that were previously assigned to the SILB were assigned to SODA:
- Old coin at the Molkenmarkt
- America House at Hardenbergstrasse 22/24
- Palais am Festungsgraben , Am Festungsgraben 1
- Robert Koch Forum in the government district , u. a. Wilhelmstrasse 67
The SODA was and is also assigned building rights from the trust assets.
