Searching for commercial space doesn’t have to be complicated, it can even be fun. We do this by:
We invest the time in really getting to know your needs, price and goals. Whether your move is driven by employee retention, a reduction in operating costs, increased productivity, a green and sustainable workplace or expansion/rightsizing we have you covered. This process sounds obvious, but when a commercial space deal falls through and the client engages us, it is always because they don’t feel heard.
Site visits are always accompanied by a space planning and IT expert and a broker, who all work in tandem to find you the best space. One team member also has secret clearance, having worked on secure data centres for the federal government, so you are in good hands.
Whether it is a lease renegotiation, office relocation, or new space, simply fill in the enquiry form and we’ll get back to you within a day.
