Building owners and operators know that even properly maintained properties can become dated. Upgrades and modifications can help reduce greenhouse emissions and improve financial performance for real estate investments. Our team of experts can help you determine what options are available to keep your real estate assets in high demand.
Energy costs are often a major factor in deciding whether a company stays in a building or moves to a different one. By properly repositioning a facility, an older building can enjoy many of the energy efficiency benefits found in newly constructed buildings. Our team of experts can help evaluate what improvements are available and the costs involved. The final result can be a facility that is more energy efficient and attractive to tenants.
Sustainable and healthy building designs are becoming “must have” requirements for many businesses as they seek to provide safe workplace environments for employees as well as meet corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. Upgrades can also help you earn various building certifications to offer as third-party verification of the health and safety of your property.
Building owners and operators know positive first impressions can pay big dividends in attracting and retaining tenants. Repositioning your building can also help generate sustained revenue. Our expert designers and engineers have the experience to transform spaces to fit new forms and functions.
The three Rs of good conservation — reduce, reuse, and recycle — can also apply to aging buildings. Just because a property has moved beyond its usefulness in one category doesn’t mean it can’t find new life in another. An old manufacturing facility can be transformed into a unique new office space. A storefront in a shuttered strip mall can become a life sciences or healthcare facility. Whatever your vision, we can help with the technical expertise to make your real estate repositioning a reality.
