Real estate brief criteria

What should be in an office real estate brief?

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

  • Size and space
  • Tenant improvement needs
  • Number of employees (maximum and minimum)
  • Image/quality/aesthetics
  • Location
  • Parking
  • Building services
  • Office hours
  • Security and access
  • Lease structure preferences
  • Technical requirements
  • Timing
  • Communications infrastructure
  • Budget
  • Environmental considerations
  • Other unique needs
  • Signage/naming rights
  • Term/renewals

Consider ranking 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 possible for the factors with greater importance.
