Real estate brief criteria

What should be in an industrial real estate brief?

Your real estate brief should consider a wide range of criteria:

  • Size of space
  • Size of workforce (maximum and minimum)
  • Image/quality/aesthetics
  • Location
  • Parking (cars and trucks)
  • Clear height
  • Loading doors
  • Proximity to major highways
  • Office hours
  • Security and access
  • Lease structure preferences
  • Technical requirements
  • Timing
  • Communications infrastructure
  • Budget
  • Environmental considerations
  • Local incentives
  • Other unique needs
  • Term/renewals

Consider constructing a matrix that ranks each factor in terms of importance, as you may have to compromise on some items, depending on the options available. You can also assign a point value to each factor, with more points attributed to the factors with greater importance.
