Corporate occupiers and tenants

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, workplace and accommodation strategies, retail and omnichannel strategies, supply chain and site selection, acquisitions and disposals of occupational property, and real estate transformation and location strategy.

At Deloitte, we advise private companies, large corporate and public sector occupiers on the transformation of their real estate to support lasting improved business performance. Managed well, an occupier’s property can be a source of competitive advantage by providing an effective and efficient platform for its business operations. Conversely, managed poorly, it can become an inflexible drain on scarce revenue and capital and inhibit business operations.
