National Vision, Inc.
01 The Opportunity
02 The Solution
Our GOS team collaborated with NVI to develop a comprehensive turn-key solution comprised of a suite of transaction management, design, and project management services. Our professionals have delivered full services to manage the process, from site identification assistance and negotiating LOIs through to the entire design phase, including project management of site details such as vendor management, permitting, signage and utilities.
Over the years, Cushman & Wakefield’s turn-key services have helped NVI to significantly reduce both the costs and time required to open a location. NVI has also gained ongoing value from our transaction management services, with notable savings produced by our lease renewal and renegotiation efforts.
