TRC Companies Selects Jones Lang LaSalle as Exclusive National Real Estate Services Provider

Relationship enables TRC to manage portfolio of 77 offices more strategically


CHICAGO, December 01, 2009 – Jones Lang LaSalle  today announced it has been selected as exclusive national real estate services provider by TRC Companies, Inc., an engineering, consulting, and construction management firm that provides integrated services to the environmental, energy, and infrastructure markets.
 
TRC Companies maintains 77 offices nationwide totalling approximately 800,000 square feet, much of it in “flex” offices that combine office and storage/warehouse space in single locations.
 
Jones Lang LaSalle will provide transaction management, lease administration and related consulting services to ensure that TRC streamlines its real estate processes, minimizes occupancy costs and maximizes flexibility in its portfolio going forward. Whereas in the past TRC used multiple service providers and operated on numerous accounting and management platforms, the new relationship allows the firm to use one unified, streamlined system.
 
“Jones Lang LaSalle’s expertise and technology platform allow us to bring a more sophisticated, strategic approach to our real estate processes,” said Tom Bennett, Chief Financial Officer at TRC Companies. “They have the market depth, research infrastructure and drive to represent our interests as leases come due, overlaid with analytics and reporting systems to help us make the right decisions for business growth.”
 
“TRC has entrusted our team with delivering value on turnkey real estate services for their entire U.S. portfolio,” said Chad Baker, Senior Vice President at Jones Lang LaSalle, who serves as the single point of accountability for service delivery to TRC. “Our analytics and proprietary dashboard approach will allow TRC to truly understand how their real estate is working for them and enable the most strategic decision-making.”
 
In addition to Baker, the Jones Lang LaSalle team will include Anna Schinas, Associate overseeing transaction management, and Jeri Jessee, Vice President overseeing lease administration services.
