CBRE’s Building Consultancy team provides market-leading advice for clients involved in the practical aspects of building, maintaining and developing property.

With experts in building surveying, engineering services, project management and cost consultancy, we can help manage every aspect of a project – from lifts and air conditioning to facades and technology – integrating management, technical skills and a strong commercial focus to save you time and money.

Less risk, for less money

Our experienced team of building surveyors and consultants will help manage the risks of property development by helping you understand the needs of your building today, while warning against issues that may arise in the future. We’ll perform technical due diligence, defects analysis and market research on your behalf, making you aware of any concerns before you make an acquisition, covering everything from contaminated land to a flood risk or tricky neighbours.

We understand that real estate risk doesn’t end with acquisition, and that regular maintenance and refurbishment will not only ensure occupiers feel happy and supported, but also enhance the long-term value of their buildings.

Cross-border and comprehensive

No other commercial property advisor has the cross-border reach or depth of resources that CBRE can offer. The combination of our services ensures that the running of your asset is smooth, well-managed and cost effective.

At the heart of CBRE’s Building Consultancy arm is our Project Services team, providing specialist support in the design, construction and development of real estate – from commercial interiors to town centre developments. Whether you’re an occupier or investor, we’ll ensure your buildings become or remain efficient, agile and positive spaces.

360-degree project management

As the market leader in commercial real estate, CBRE is the only company with the depth of experience to look after all of your project needs. Drawing on both our technical and management expertise, we’ll handle everything from the project management of major mixed use schemes, through development consultancy and the procurement and execution of capital projects, to the design and management of commercial interiors.

We are experts at organising and managing construction projects as well as corporate relocation, while our team also includes specialist health and safety consultants to mitigate risk and shield you from unnecessary costs.
