Technology and Telecommunications

The technology and telecommunications sectors are constantly evolving so real estate must be malleable and flexible. Our Technology & Telecommunications Sector Group helps clients navigate the complex challenges presented by real estate in a rapidly changing environment; helping clients to constantly ‘right-size’ their footprint while keeping open options for future expansion. We can either streamline entire property portfolios for maximum flexibility and efficiency, or satisfy a specific property requirement as part of a one-off transaction. In all cases our role is to align real estate solutions with business objectives and industry realities. Some of the real estate challenges specific to the technology and telecommunications sectors include:

  • This sector has remained fairly resilient in light of the global slowdown
  • There is an increased focus on using office space more efficiently
  • Access to talent is a key determinant in location selection
  • Attracting and retaining talent and increasing internal collaboration drives decisions relating to workplace design

How Can We Add Value?

 

While certain themes apply across the whole sector, all businesses have unique objectives and requirements. We adapt sector-specific experience and market knowledge with each individual client’s needs to find solutions that help meet key challenges; all the while structuring a flexible portfolio that utilizes space both efficiently and cost-effectively.
