Cushman & Wakefield launches new UK building services team
23 Apr, 2012, London
Cushman & Wakefield, the world's largest privately held commercial real estate services firm, has established a new UK building services team in London, working across the UK. The new division is in line with the firm's strategic aim to grow its Corporate Occupier & Investor Services (CIS) service line and represents a key milestone in building its London and UK presence.
The team is headed up by Alan Munson and Chris Browe. Alan and Chris originally come from engineering consulting firm Meinhardt UK, where they were UK board directors. Whilst at Meinhardt the team established a longstanding relationship with C&W as services consultants and worked together on many successful projects.
The team's main focus will be on projects covering the core business lines of a traditional consultancy practice incorporating all aspects of building services design. Current projects include:
Bryan Laxton, CEO UK at Cushman & Wakefield, said: "We are excited to be developing this new line of work and aim to expand this team in a structured manner over the next few years to that of a traditional medium-sized consultancy business. The new team will help spearhead the firm?s growth in London, and the rest of the UK, and build on the strong foundation of our Corporate & Investor Services service line."
Cushman & Wakefield's London team is involved in some of the capital?s most significant real estate projects. The Firm has instructions totalling 6.5 million sq ft of office agency including; J.P. Morgan?s 1 million sq ft office portfolio in the City of London and 1 million sq ft of offices at Westfield Stratford City. Cushman & Wakefield is also mandated on over 1.5 million sq ft of occupier requirements across London and also advises the U.S. Department of State on the development of its new U.S. Embassy at Nine Elms.
