We ensure clients stay current on the continuously evolving flex landscape and leverage the best portfolio solutions.

Flex and Core Strategy / We help clients de-risk an office move or relocation. For occupiers exploring large new office leases, we de-risk a relocation by bringing in an operator to enter a building together. Our clients take a hybrid of traditional office space with the landlord and a flexible agreement with the operator.

Surplus Space Redeployment / We help clients explore savings opportunities for underutilized or unused space. We do this by selecting and partnering with a provider to takeover parts or whole sections of client’s office.

By Request Turnkey Deals / For occupiers not satisfied with existing flex supply, we can advise on operator operators who will activate turnkey, flexible space on-demand in a building of the occupier’s choice.

We help clients optimize their use of flexible workspaces. We understand the underlying business drivers that inform a flexible workspace strategy and have built a 5-step portfolio diagnostic that unearths these opportunities. 

The diagnostic considers key business drivers combined with market supply data to score locations by viability for a flexible workspace solution.

  • Step 1: We analyze key business drivers to score locations by their business case for flexibility and assign each location a ‘flex score’
  • Step 2: We identify target locations for flexibility based on the highest overall scores
  • Step 3: We utilize our global research to rank the maturity of flexible workspace supply in the target markets (‘supply score’)
  • Step 4: We overlay the ‘flex score’ with the ‘supply score’ to grade all the opportunities by combined score
  • Step 5: We provide the client with a set of recommendations along with both qualitative and quantitative impacts
