Case Study

Portfolio strategy: opportunity assessment

The world leader in service to science presented our Strategic Consulting advisory team a clear challenge: help reduce operating expenses in a 12 million square foot global real estate portfolio, encompassing more than 300 locations in 26 countries.

Working alongside our client’s executives, our team examined the company’s decentralized real estate organization and operations, identified cost savings opportunities and recommended implementation scenarios in three high potential "work streams":

  • Strategic sourcing of facilities management-related products and services    
  • Improved energy management and procurement
  • Rationalization of the financial decision to lease versus own

We evaluated the client’s real estate portfolio, organization and practices, prepared a detailed key site analysis, and determined the savings opportunity in each location by applying best practices.

Our team delivered individual business cases to the client’s senior management containing more than $10 million in annual cost savings:  $1 million in strategic sourcing, over $2 million in energy management and more than $7 million for an optimized lease-versus-own structure.
