Colin Recognized for his Work on Global Relay's Recent Expansion
We are pleased to announce that Colin Scarlett, executive vice president with Colliers International in Vancouver, won the 2016 NAIOP & Business in Vancouver BC Commercial Real Estate Award of Excellence for Office Lease at the awards gala that took place on May 17, 2016.
Every two years, NAIOP and Business in Vancouver recognize the industry’s best based on their performance, innovation, creativity, teamwork and collaboration, as well as their community and environmental awareness.
Colin gratefully accepted the award acknowledging his work on the 62,000-square-foot expansion and renewal of Global Relay’s global headquarters at 220 Cambie Street in Vancouver.
Global Relay, one of BC’s most celebrated and awarded technology companies, has experienced phenomenal growth, leaving the firm in constant need of additional space. Colin had originally secured the expansion project through a referral in 2003, making Global Relay the only tenant in Vancouver that has expanded in the same building more than 10 times (starting with a 2,500-square-foot space and expanding to 62,000 square feet – 80% of the building). This transition would have been impossible had it not been for a progressive landlord and a solid, win-win landlord-tenant relationship that has lasted over 10 years, culminating in Global Relay’s most recent expansion and newly executed lease.
The project was an absolute success. Global Relay secured all the expansion space it required, which includes a large employee café, a brick and timber tech space with high ceilings and a private rooftop patio. Global Relay has found the perfect home, enhancing the company’s ability to recruit and retain the city’s best talent.
A big congratulations to Colin on winning this prestigious, well-deserved award.
