We pursue the opportunity to partner with organisations that recognise the need to engage skilled, expert resources on a short term or project basis, when extra effort is required to implement change, accommodate growth, or develop an innovative solution to our clients’ accommodation requirements.

This could include: Systematic space use assessment, Locational assessment and comparisons, Consolidation strategies, Lease renegotiation strategies including rent review mechanisms, Review of make good obligations and possibilities to mitigate, Rationalisation of OpEx and CapEx spend within the property category.
Professional independence, which means that there are no conflicts of interest in dealing with Real Estate Agents, Landlords or Developers. We source our fee from our client and work exclusively for you to ensure the best property solution and the optimum financial outcome, making certain that all available options are reviewed.
Our fees are fixed and linked to the service we provide – not the value of the transaction or ‘deal’. This means that we do not put any pressure on our clients to adopt a particular solution or ‘upsize’ due to the fact that there may be a ‘sliding scale of fees’ in place.
Our experience and property knowledge allows us to quickly respond to your requirements; freeing you up to continue the core activities of your role, saving you time – and money.
