The German Embassy

Challenge

The German Embassy was formerly residing in a domicile property, which no longer met their area requirements or their security requirements.

Solution

In cooperation with the embassy, Cushman & Wakefield | RED set up a requirement specification and based on this Cushman & Wakefield | RED searched the market for suitable leases. Following the viewings and analysis of a long line of leases, a modern and newly constructed lease in Copenhagen’s Northern Harbor was chosen. Cushman & Wakefield | RED handled the coordination between the involved technical and legal advisers and negotiated the lease agreement on behalf of the embassy.

Added Value

The embassy gained a future-proved lease, which meets their wishes in terms of location, visibility, accessibility and not least security. Also, Cushman & Wakefield | RED negotiated a lease agreement with the best possible financial and legal terms for the embassy.

Testimonial

Testimonial from Birgit Adam, Head of Administration, The German Embassy in Copenhagen "It is particularly worth pointing out that this was made possible due to an excellent effort from the responsible adviser from RED and her professionalism and experience resulted in a lease agreement, which in every way is lucid, fair and sound and therefore is a solid lease agreement for both parties. Her service not only included the actual lease agreement, she also helped solving another line of issues according to our requirements (for example usage of the shared facilities and parking in the area). The German Foreign Ministry in Berlin and The German Embassy in Copenhagen once again would like to emphasize, that we have been more than pleased with RED Property Advisers."

Renault

Challenge

Renault had outgrown their lease and required new surroundings, which should also promote the quality of the brand. Location, parking, efficiency, quality and flexibility were the keywords.

Solution

Cushman & Wakefield | RED explored the options in the existing property - also in relation to expanding towards the neighbor - as well as other options in the general market. The perfect lease was identified and negotiated based on cost-effectiveness, parking, location and quality.

Added Value

Renault obtained a newly refurbished quality lease and a lease agreement, which takes the company’s requirements for flexibility into account plus a considerable number of parking spaces – free of charge – on top of this.

Statement from former CEO Henrik Bang:

"We have been more than happy with RED. They paid attention and understood in full our requirements and wishes for a new lease. We gained a very professional partner – and a dream of a new office within our budget. And not only did we get the perfect domicile in terms of quality and costs, we also obtained a reduction of costs negotiated by RED and this covered the expense we had by using RED as our adviser. I am now on to the next domicile project – and of course I have already contacted Katrine from RED."

Colgate-Palmolive

Udfordring

Colgate-Palmolive (CP) var bosiddende på 2.300 m² fordelt på 3 etager. CP forestod selv kantinedrift og mødecenter og de samlede omkostninger var reguleret gennem lejeperioden. CP ønskede en bedre udnyttelse af arealerne, samt fokus på omkostningerne – uden at gå på kompromis med kvalitet.

Løsning

Cushman & Wakefield | RED forelagde CP markedsdata der bl.a. anskueliggjorde det økonomiske potentiale ved en flytning ctr. at blive i lejemålet. Gennem en søgeproces, samt møder med CP’s arbejdsgruppe, blev et nyt lejemål udvalgt. En ny lejekontrakt blev forhandlet med fokus på fleksibilitet, kvalitet og økonomi. CP’s nyindrettede lejemål er i ét plan, har gode p-forhold og med fælles faciliteter i ejendommen.

Resultat

Bedre sammenhæng i lejemålet og udnyttelse af kvadratmeterne. Ud over en afbalanceret lejekontrakt har CP også opnået en betydelig reduktion af de samlede årlige lejeomkostninger på ca. 60 %. CP’s danske hovedkontor er nu skabelon for koncernens nye lejemål i regionen.

Udtalelse fra adm. dir Henning Jakobsen:

"Det er altid en udfordring at skulle flytte kontordomicil samtidig med at levere forretningsresultater. Med hjælp fra RED fik vi tidligt i processen structureret aktiviteterne og engageret medarbejderne således at change management processen forløb problemfrit. Slutresultatet blev en forbedret arbejdsplads med significante besparelser og forhøjet medarbejdertilfredshed."
