During a HQ relocation assignment, we faced fierce competition from Apple and Google on literally every building of interest. Our relationships with the key landlords, coupled with our negotiation expertise enabled Omnicell to secure their ideal building at competitive terms. Our client prevailed in what was a true David and Goliath encounter.
BIG service for a small company
We helped Kawasaki Micro execute a space reduction strategy for their local office by employing a reputable space planning firm at NO COST. We created an accurate needs analysis incorporating all their requirements into the perfect office space, ultimately saving over $400K!
The lease renewal advantage!
Nitto Denko America tasked us to renew its lease at more favorable terms, along with much needed interior improvements. Our market knowledge and reputation leveled the playing field for our client, and provided leverage to achieve all of their objectives. We now renew their leases all over the country.
Successful deals in far away places
Infoblox required the same level of service we provided in Silicon Valley for all their Asia Pac requirements. Teaming with the Colliers’ network of global offices, we employed reliable strategy and the manpower necessary to complete assignments quickly and with confidence. This resulted in several success stories for Infoblox, even for small requirements in remote locations.
Rock solid budget
Our client was in the middle of an IPO and could not afford any surprises with the real estate budget for a new HQ building. Design, rent, operating expenses, construction, FF&E, IT, AV, Security, Fire/ Safety, utilities, food service and all other miscellaneous costs were incorporated accurately. The budget was confidently brought to the board and approved, resulting in a new building delivered on time and on budget.
