Bring expertise and agility to your real estate solutions
Within Occupier Services, Corporate Solutions is a type of client engagement led by an account management team and single point of contact, as an extension of your team.
Our unique combination of deep expertise within each integrated service area and our enterprising culture maximizes efficiencies for your business. We bring you the account leadership, performance management and governance systems to drive value and turn your real estate footprint and workplaces into a competitive advantage.
Our Service Integration
You need competitive advantage and we deliver. We build teams across markets with the right expertise, experience and connections to deliver the right solutions.
Our business and portfolio team provides consulting services focused on aligning your real estate strategy with your core business, resulting in optimized real estate assets and increased productivity. These services include access to the Colliers360 platform, a fully-integrated, scalable dashboard and analytics software. Utilizing our Place Strategy® methodology, we construct forward-thinking occupancy strategies that can quickly adapt to shifting business conditions.
We work with your team to research and understand your company’s needs, obstacles and goals to determine how many locations your company requires in order to thrive, evaluate how e-commerce can help you meet your goals, develop an effective supply chain and design and build facilities that optimize your company’s success.
Defining a portfolio strategy for real estate within a digital network is an increasingly complex process. With more than 70% of all applications now being housed in the cloud, many companies need a new take on their technology-based real estate strategies. You need an approach that reflects where business and technology demands are evolving and provides recommendations on both the physical footprint and the digital ecosystem necessary to support effective delivery.
The Data Center & Digital Consulting practice provides advisory services focused on analyzing the multitude of data, cloud, network and supporting business models that result in more agile network and footprint opportunities. Partnering with our technology solutions brokerage professionals, we create actionable plans that lead to the highest value for real estate while reducing capital and operating budgets for our clients.
Whether you have already adopted an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) technology or have never deployed a lease administration database, our specialists deliver solutions with real-time integration and centralization of information relying on non-proprietary systems that offer you freedom and long-term sustainability.
As part of our services, you gain access to the Colliers360 dashboard, which is a fully-integrated, scalable dashboard and analytics platform. Colliers360 is a highly customizable tool that can be utilized to address your unique needs and concerns.
Relocations and expansions provide exciting opportunities to modernize your office environment and ensure that you’re getting the best use out of each square foot. Our team utilizes the latest research, along with our field-tested set of proprietary tools and methods, to create workplace solutions that address your unique business and cultural needs.
Whether you already have a lease administration database or are seeking an optimal system, your Colliers professional can help you by abstracting leases, tracking critical lease dates, auditing landlord invoices and negotiating recoveries, budgeting real estate expenses and managing real estate portfolios.
In our experience, many landlord reconciliation statements contain inaccuracies that can be uncovered during an annual audit and addressed to avoid future overcharge. Our lease auditing services can help you take advantage of your review rights and opportunities to realize savings. These efforts and more can help deliver a compelling return on investment through thoughtful lease administration processes.
We leverage in-depth market knowledge, sophisticated financial tools, site-selection mapping and move-management techniques to deliver the most efficient and effective tactical implementation for your tenancy needs. For property dispositions, we develop and execute detailed property marketing strategies based on your specific goals.
Our multi-disciplinary team of regional and global professionals are diverse, agile and dedicated to delivering solutions for a group or all ongoing projects. With expertise in architecture, engineering, construction, facilities planning, building commissioning, operations and financial management, we work as an extension of your team and advocate on your behalf.
