Real Estate

Helps organisations address their real estate portfolio, operating model, workplace strategy, and real estate technology issues by executing complex programs that add value, improve service delivery, and mitigate risk as well to ensure the latest accounting standards regarding the accounting of lease contracts.

Location Strategy

Help organisations address complex location and footprint issues with strategies and methodology that includes global site selection, location analytics, site and talent market due diligence, and incentives negotiations

Where your talent and corporate assets are located can be as critical to your organisation’s effectiveness as the work they support.

Deloitte’s Location Strategy practice helps you address complex location and footprint issues in ways that add value and mitigate risk. As objective location advisors — not brokers — we stay firmly focused on your priorities and how to locate your business to effectively support your strategy. We can assist you with:

  • Enterprise footprint optimisation — honing your decision-making skills and resources so asset deployment decisions incorporate an enterprise view, capture benefits for the short term, and lay the foundation for long-term strategic priorities
  • Site selection — finding locations that access new markets, achieve operating cost targets, improve access to talent, and facilitate an issue-free ramp-up, including country analysis, city/site screening, detailed labour market and site due diligence, and comparative cost and conditions evaluations
  • Incentives negotiations — driving a favourable incentives outcome for each job creation or investment project, using a results-oriented process for statutory and discretionary incentives
