Occupier Services

We understand that every occupier is different and requires personalised property advise that meets specific and ever-changing office requirements.

Space is a valuable commodity for tenants, not only because lease-related expenses often constitute one of the largest items in a company’s budget. Used in the right way, a company’s corporate real estate portfolio can maximise its operational efficiency, speak volumes to clients, and enhance staff recruitment and retention.

In this increasingly complex and challenging world, businesses are looking to create property portfolios that are lean enough to be cost efficient yet flexible enough to meet longer term objectives. Our London Office Markets Occupier Advisory team understands the challenges and works with you to achieve the best results.

Case Studies

UCL Mechanical Engineering

Location: 44 Wicklow Street WC1

UCL Mechanical Engineering instructed us to advise on their property strategy in Central London. The department required additional space for undergraduate student teaching and workshops within walking distance of their current campus in Bloomsbury. They required lease flexibility due to setting up a joint venture with another business who would also occupy the space. This led to Colliers sourcing an off-market opportunity at 44 Wicklow Street, previously occupied by the NHS and due to be redeveloped in 3 years. UCL also inherited the existing second-hand fit out which they could utilise, reducing their upfront capital expenditure.


Location: 22 Bishopsgate, London

Nasdaq instructed us to advise on their occupational strategy in London. With redevelopment plans to their existing building and the organic growth of the business, Nasdaq needed to secure offices to satisfy these requirements and support their brand and culture as a forward-thinking technology business. The result; a pre-let lease acquisition of 25,000 sq ft in London’s soon to be (due to complete in March 2020) iconic building, 22 Bishopsgate. Colliers, on behalf of Nasdaq, secured a delayed lease commencement date, to coincide with their exit, plus an early access option at nil cost 6 months prior to lease commencement to start fitting out.

Sliide Ltd

Location: Wool & Tailor, 10-12 Alie Street E1

Sliide App instructed us to advise on their first conventional lease acquisition in Central London. Currently based in a serviced office in Aldgate, the client wanted to find an office that accommodated their expansion plans as well as being client facing and representative of their global tech brand. We focused on media style, creative buildings which led us to acquire a floor in a newly redeveloped building, The Wool & Tailor in Aldgate. Colliers, on behalf of Sliide, agreed a deal for the landlord to deliver a fully fitted space which was tailored to Sliide’s requirements, considerably reducing the upfront capital expenditure of the business.
