Corporate Real Estate Strategy – For Occupiers

Aligning portfolio strategy with dynamic business needs

“I’m worried we will have too much real estate in the wrong locations in a few years!”

We take a ‘helicopter’ view of your portfolio to review your assets in the context of your organisational strategy and industry best practices. The challenge with CRE strategy is the mismatch between real estate project timelines, shortening business planning cycles, and an increasingly VUCA operating environment.

What is possible, is to clearly articulate your competitive strategy and drivers of change, and translate these into real estate impacts and probabilities. We draw on our experience to challenge headcount assumptions, model a range of scenarios, and suggest options to manage dynamic demand change over time.

These options focus on achieving objectives important to your business, such as reduced footprint, lower cost per employee, improved utilisation (for more information refer to our Occupancy Strategy services), and structured tenure flexibility.

Achieving these objectives may require bold decisions so we seek to understand the risks of both action and inaction. We help you make sound decisions as we are unencumbered by any conflict of interest.

The way forward is often obscured, but a shared sense of direction can help maintain a steady course despite uncertainty

We develop recommendations for optimising your portfolio using a variety of techniques depending on your context, availability of information, and decision-making approach.
