  • Strategies for managing the serviced office portfolio
    • Abstract: This paper considers serviced offices and explains why they comprise a mismanaged part of most client portfolios. Serviced offices are often referred to as the ‘blind spot’ in any real estate portfolio for two reasons: they usually are not the biggest part of a portfolio and, consequently, some brokers do not pay much attention to them because the commissions are not high enough. But significant savings and tremendous operational flexibility can be achieved by knowing who best to work with, what negotiation strategies to employ and how to continue to work the market and avoid the auto-renewal death spiral.

  • Catalyst for the future: The emergence of mobile corporate real estate
           technologies
    • Abstract: The trend in utilisation of mobile technologies has now reached a point where it is quickly becoming the predominant manner in which business is conducted. A recent survey confirms this, as close to 50 per cent of chief information officers said that mobile technologies and business intelligence were their top priorities for technology spending this year. Seventy per cent of companies planned to provide smartphones for some employees this year, or had already done so. In addition, almost 60 per cent of companies planned to provide tablets for some employees. Perhaps most telling is the prediction by the Wall Street Journal that, in 2014, business spending on mobile devices will overtake spending on fixed devices. Yet, many corporate real estate (CRE) organisations have yet to fully embrace these capabilities or leverage the potential game-changing impact that these new capabilities are bringing and, to enable them to do so, it would be helpful to understand how the industry has evolved in order to have a better perspective on the potential future state. In addition, having an understanding of current capabilities could allow CRE organisations to make informed decisions on adoption of these new technologies. Finally, appreciating the full capabilities that these solutions offer, including the impact on business intelligence, will ensure that CRE organisations maximise the value proposition for their services and their customers.

  • How good property data can transform a company and drive its competitive
           edge
    • Abstract: This paper discusses how data and their effective utilisation comprise one of the key ingredients in becoming more competitive in the corporate real estate (CRE) arena. In an ideal world, access to useful and meaningful information across a CRE organisation would be just a click away. All the required information would be accessed in real time, from anywhere and at any time. The reality is that many CRE professionals are operating in the dark without having access to the relevant information to support decision making. Although CRE companies are literally inundated with data, many have not been able to extract the maximum value, due to a combination of poor quality data; cumbersome tools used to extract, analyse and transform the data into useful information; and poor integration of data across the organisation. The need to integrate data from a myriad of systems and inputs increases the difficulty rate when implementing a new CRE system. An incremental implementation approach has proven highly successful, allowing CRE companies to ‘digest’ new functionality ‘one bite at a time’. CRE companies that recognise their corporate data comprise a strategic, mission-critical resource are able to extract greater value, and are positioned to take full advantage of data analytics, financial modelling and other leading edge technologies — enabling better and faster decision making. Employees now have a new role to play within the corporation that focuses on analysing and delivering tangible value instead of just collating data. Such CRE companies have a clear competitive advantage over their less data-driven rivals.

  • The missing link: Transforming deep retrofits into financial assets
    • Abstract: Deep retrofits — those saving 50 per cent or more energy and achieving superior sustainability performance — are valuable yet largely untapped financial assets. This paper describes how to calculate all the value created by deep retrofits, radically changing the value proposition of deep retrofits, enabling such investments to take their proper role as a central driver of company performance. Many corporations have steadily improved the energy and sustainability performance of their buildings, primarily to minimise operating costs and keep pace with changing codes and standards. Many also have been searching for financially viable approaches to expand sustainability efforts to meet growing customer, employee and investor demand, but have struggled to link deeper energy/sustainability retrofits to attractive financial performance. This paper presents the ‘missing link’: how to calculate and present the value created by deep retrofits of corporate real estate. The deep retrofit value model for corporations consists of nine ‘value elements’ organised around a traditional business valuation framework that starts with an evaluation of retrofit property costs and risks, and then details how a deep retrofit affects business costs, revenues and risks. If implemented broadly, corporations will enhance their competitive position and financial performance while helping to transform global energy use to create a clean, prosperous and secure future.

  • Proworking: Redefining the workplace and the role of corporate real estate
    • Abstract: The term ‘workplace’ has taken on a new meaning, now referring to work environments both within and outside of a company's portfolio of leased or owned properties. With the proworking concept, a company adopts a holistic approach to its use of real estate and commits to offering multiple options for employees to be at their most productive, in the places that best support achieving business results. Delivering that environment means re-envisioning how and where workers access the space and resources they need. Proworking extends the concept of co-working to the enterprise, with owners of real estate consistently providing professional and well-maintained work environments to mobile professionals.

  • Real estate: Cost centre or profit enhancer?
    • Abstract: In a world of volatile economics, the demand for improved profitability is on the rise. It is this trend that has led to the development of new thinking that challenges the traditional approach to the provision of workplace optimisation. This trend has been identified from the perspectives of management consultancy and workplace design and gives rise to an alternative paradigm to the current cost-driven model. The alternative model is reliant upon greater engagement from all areas of an organisation and a refocusing of the role of real estate and facilities management departments to deliver a more holistic view of the options open to a business facing change. This refocus provides options that not only deal with potential cost-savings but also increase bottom-line performance through greater efficiency and productivity. Armed with these options, senior management can make informed decisions regarding which changes will offer the most benefit to their particular organisation and operations. This paper hopefully will encourage wider consideration of how real estate is both used and valued and what it can contribute rather than being consistently perceived as a cost centre.

  • Best practices in implementing a CMMS
    • Abstract: With so many needs and limited budgets, how does one make the most out of a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) implementation? From the initial request for quote (RFQ) to a fully functional system it can be a long road full of key decision points. How the procurement process and implementation of CMMS are managed is crucial to the success of the project. In this paper, the City of Kansas City, Missouri shares its experience in its journey to procure and implement a CMMS platform, providing lessons in best practices in CMMS implementation and how technology can meet an organisation's needs both today and tomorrow.

  • The value of building information modelling for corporate real estate
    • Abstract: Building information modelling (BIM) is an evolutionary innovation that has taken the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry by storm, with BIM being adopted fast by companies within it. But the benefits and potential of the new BIM process need to be realised by professionals outside the AEC industry and, more importantly, implemented by the C-suite members of organisations. This is essential for huge savings to be made on new or existing assets, mostly in operations, achieved by improving their functionality, operational efficiency and effectiveness. This paper first attempts to explain BIM and discuss its main benefits for clients while also developing BIM for use with facilities management (FM). With FM explained, the sub-categories within FM that can be easily linked to the BIM process are highlighted along with conceptual ideas, thinking needed from the client and important data drops for successful FM.

  • Corporate users benefit through proactive lease administration
    • Abstract: Until recently, lease administration and audit services were a reactionary effort to combat cost reductions as poor lease language played the culprit in leaving millions of dollars on the table for space users. When lease administration and audit teams take a proactive approach to examining lease language in the early stages of drafting (tackling areas such as tenant improvements, taxes, expenses and auditing), opportunities are created for a negotiation process that ultimately evolves into more favourable terms for the tenant. Simply put, without intelligent, proactive and comprehensive lease administration and audit programmes, tenants will continue to blindly fall victim to landlords and miss out on the inevitable savings that go along with them.

  • Acquiring and maintaining accurate real estate data
    • Abstract: Acquiring and maintaining accurate real estate data, while difficult, is definitely achievable. Success in such an initiative will depend on certain key elements, such as defining desired outcomes or the value that the exercise will bring; identifying the stakeholders who will become champions in gathering key data elements; selling the idea to senior leaders; and finally ensuring the needed resources are available, both people and costs, to see the project through to the end. In addition, processes will be needed that are comprehensive enough to capture holistic portfolio churn while not being so overly cumbersome as to cause data fatigue with stakeholders. This paper will describe these key elements and provide the reader with a solid road map for how to achieve an accurate portfolio view.

  • Enhancing the facilities management process through the application of
           building information modelling as a tool for managing the Irish public
           sector estates
    • Abstract: The Irish Government manages estates faced with increased pressure on their greenhouse gas emissions, as well as poorly managed assets that leave it increasingly difficult for an effective facilities management (FM) process to be operated. In order for Ireland to realise a smarter and better-equipped public estate which can respond to increased staffing demands, it is critical that a new dimension of FM be explored. Such an avenue, as highlighted by Forfás — Ireland's policy advisory board for enterprise, trade, science, technology and innovation — can come in the form of information and communication technology (ICT), which can enable companies to remain competitive. One action proposed by Forfás is to work with industry organisations to drive increased adoption of ICT uptake such as building information modelling (BIM). The UK has begun to apply such a strategy, which has been evident from the development and partnership of the Government Soft Landings (GSL) policy and BIM. This paper will review the current state of the Irish FM sector and investigate how adopting a similar approach to the combined UK GSL policy and BIM implementation strategy could help to move the Irish Government towards a more enhanced estate. The data collation methodology adopted by the authors in this paper included the use of a questionnaire survey that was designed and distributed in collaboration with the Irish Facilities Property Management sector. It is hoped that the research findings will demonstrate the business case for the implementation of BIM and, in particular, the adoption of a similar soft landings policy in advancing the Irish FM sector.

  • Redefining corporate real estate by quantifying building energy
           performance
    • Abstract: The concept of sustainability — living and creating in a way that ensures the world and its resources can be sustained in the long term — is not new. But sustainability as a fundamental part of the corporate world, and the corporate real estate world specifically, is indeed revolutionary. The trend is being spurred by numerous motivating factors including the environment, health, social responsibility and financial performance. High-efficiency buildings are becoming some of the most highly valued and viable ones on the market, due to the cost-savings offered to tenants. Owners who invest in green buildings and the energy-efficient features that define them are able to differentiate their properties in a highly competitive market, and those who go the extra step to quantify the energy savings provided by their buildings stand to benefit even more. It is crucial to understand a building's position in the corporate lease environment in order to effectively market its value among competitors. Energy Star and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE's) Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) programs are excellent tools for quantifying performance and cost-savings. By proactively measuring their buildings’ performance and marketing their value to tenants, owners and managers are taking the necessary steps to successfully compete in an increasingly green-focused corporate world.

  • Transforming where work happens: Shifting investment in real estate to
           technology enablement and employee mobility
    • Abstract: Between 2000 and 2012, Accenture's global headcount grew by 300 per cent but its real estate portfolio grew by just 150 per cent. Besides having a significant bottom-line effect — costs for facilities operations in the USA alone fell by 45 per cent — the Accenture Workplace Model that drives its internal real estate transformation also contributes significantly to lowering Accenture's carbon emissions (by almost 35 per cent) and improving employee satisfaction and productivity — all strong outcomes of the ongoing internal workplace and technology evolution. Accenture's complex business and varied workforce created a unique opportunity to design a game-changing real estate approach. The company's expanding client offerings, globally emerging markets and young employee population require it not only to embrace a progressive, flexible, workplace model, but also look towards the future to shape the next one — and the one after that. This is the story of how Accenture transformed ‘where work happens’ by shifting investments in real estate to technology enablement and, ultimately, empowering employees to choose where (and how) they work every day.

  • Understanding and reviewing the ‘hidden rent’
    • Abstract: Tenants must understand their lease before signing it. Much too often, a tenant looks back and realises they have agreed to something that is now costing them thousands of dollars per month. This paper opens the door and introduces the tenant to the many types of possible overcharges. It looks at several basic areas of overcharging and explains why they exist and how to avoid them. These areas include pro-rata share allocation, administrative charges, non-common area maintenance (CAM) expenses, real estate taxes and caps. The paper also looks at some specific overcharges related to office and industrial leases such as base year and gross-up clauses. Understanding all the ins and outs of a lease is very difficult, especially for someone not in the real estate business. As with most things, the more detailed it gets, the more complex it becomes. This is especially true for additional rents such as CAM, operating expenses, real estate taxes, insurance and other monetary lease items. These items, if not fully understood, will become ‘hidden rent’.

  • Sustainable facility management strategies
    • Abstract: The facility management (FM) industry is the foremost contributor to a high-performance, productive and sustainable built environment through strategic and innovative management of facility services. When practised effectively and strategically, FM can be a major efficiency driver, supporting business requirements, ensuring regulatory compliance and achieving corporate social responsibility and environmental stewardship goals. Doing so, however, requires well-qualified FM professionals to influence decisions and implement sustainability strategies to yield cost-savings, lower environmental impacts and provide comfortable, safe, healthy and productive workplaces.
