2/11/2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK), a leading global real estate services firm, today announced a strategic collaboration with Brailsford & Dunlavey External Link (B&D), a development advisory firm that has helped more than 800 clients achieve their visions through the built environment. The arrangement will significantly enhance the firms’ collective ability to provide end-to-end real estate services and expertise to colleges and universities, PK-14 schools, municipalities and professional sports and entertainment organizations across the U.S.

“As educational institutions and other public sector entities face new challenges – including those brought on by the pandemic – it’s crucial that we partner with firms like Cushman & Wakefield that bring a world-wide perspective on best practices, to inform the guidance we provide to our clients in how both their facilities and operations can best serve their communities,” said Chris Dunlavey, President of B&D. “Our 27-year track record and reputation in these sectors, combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s broad platform of resources geographically and within various service lines, will enable us to provide enhanced service to our clients.”

B&D’s experts will collaborate closely with Cushman & Wakefield’s Education, Public Sector and Sports & Entertainment Advisory Groups, and the firm’s facility services group C&W Services, to form joint project teams that will offer fully integrated services. These include development advisory, strategic planning, market analysis, site selection, property/facility management, valuation, energy & sustainability services, acquisition/disposition, leasing, financing solutions, project management and operational efficiency. 

“Both B&D and Cushman & Wakefield bring complementary strengths to the relationship that will benefit the firms’ existing and prospective clients. We round out B&D’s advisory experience and its impeccable research and decision making platform with our ability to execute transactions locally and deliver services such as finance structuring, which are in high demand in the current environment,” said Peter Brohoski, Executive Director of Cushman & Wakefield’s Washington, D.C. market and head of the Public Sector Advisory Services Group. 

“On the facilities services side, C&W Services aims to be a strategic partner to higher education clients by supporting student health and wellness, fostering service innovation and driving operational efficiencies,” said Brian Reyes, Senior Vice President of Higher Education for C&W Services. “This arrangement is a win-win for us and B&D because we’re able to bring the skillsets of both firms to maximize the value of each relationship.”
