01 The Challenge
Relocation from 10 properties into a new 350,000sqft HQ.
Major dilapidations and lease disposal strategy.
Omnicom Europe Limited had to relocate from over ten properties into one over 4 years. Each lease had different termination dates. Some with break clauses and onerous obligations and others extending beyond the relocation date. The client assigned Cushman & Wakefield Building Consultancy team to de-risk onerous dilapidations. The team was tasked to settle larger claims as quickly as possible, leaving residual claims for a longer term approach.
02 The Solution
03 The Result
- Short term de-risking of the dilapidations financial exposure and lease liability, by focusing on easier wins.
- Long term strategy for the remaining more complex dilapidations settlements.
- Ultimately significantly reducing the overall dilapidations financial settlement for Omnicom.
Savings achieved on claims often in excess of 50%
"We successfully partnered with Cushman & Wakefield to navigate us through 10 complex and large scale exit obligations on our recent London consolidation. The Cushman & Wakefield team skillfully managed and guided us through the dilapidations process, meeting and often exceeding the objectives set and ultimately achieving a very positive financial outcome"
