As a real estate owner, you expect your buildings to operate seamlessly and produce safe, comfortable and productive work environments for tenants. And with increasing attention on climate change, energy and sustainability are likely at the forefront of your real estate strategy.
Our Cushman & Wakefield Engineering Operations teams are always asking What’s Next for your building operations strategy. We make an impact by implementing processes and best practices that improve operating efficiency, produce cost-savings for your bottom line and reduce overall risk. In turn, tenants enjoy more productivity and less interruption, resulting in higher satisfaction and retention. With a strong presence nationwide, our cohesive approach to building operations allows us to consistently enhance asset value across all markets and portfolios.
“We transform your buildings into energy-efficient assets through smart operations that create healthy, environmentally friendly workplaces that attract top tenants and boost ROI,” says Lee Dunfee, East Region Engineering Lead, Asset Services. “Though often working behind the scenes, our engineering teams elevate the tenant experience with quick response times and courteous in-person communications.”
In partnership with our Sustainability Services team, we take energy and sustainability beyond corporate reputation and competitive differentiation. With proactive energy plans and preventive maintenance, our experts deliver measurable cost-saving results for your assets while boosting tenant wellness and building system longevity. We track building performance, perform energy audits and lead sustainability certification processes such as LEED, ENERGY STAR® and Zero Waste. Our clients have realized as much as 10–15% in annual energy cost-savings with our Energy Optimization Assessment Program audits and analyses.
“Oftentimes, savings are realized through low-to-no-cost energy strategies, such as modifying building system runtimes,” says Javier Toro, Chief Engineer, Denver. “Our clients reap the benefit with higher ENERGY STAR scores as a result of building system optimization.”
As extreme weather events, such as hurricanes or floods, become more commonplace due to changing weather patterns, building resiliency and restoration is key to minimizing operations and loss of profit. When disaster strikes, our engineers can be found on the frontline working with our deep network of partners to prepare and protect your assets and restore them to working order as quickly as possible.
“Our holistic, strategic approach to building engineering not only focuses on overall operations but helps ensure our clients’ assets are resilient for the future, especially in the event of a significant disruption,” says Harry Moseley, Senior Director, Engineering Operations.
