Tenants and Occupiers

Whatever the business, property is almost certainly one of the largest overheads, typically the second or third largest cost, after people and IT. Managed well, a real estate portfolio can represent a substantial operational and financial asset, critical to the effective delivery of your core business. Managed inefficiently, it rapidly becomes a liability — a major revenue cost, a voracious consumer of capital investment and an illiquid asset that potentially constrains an organization’s ability to respond to fast-changing core business needs. We offer a broad range of services, including: assisting clients design a practical property-based solution that delivers business priorities, lease and rent audits, lease data verification/integrity, acquisitions and disposals of occupational property, and real estate transformation and location strategy.
