In April 2012, a multidisciplinary team led by Leland Consulting Group and Cushman & Wakefield was selected by the State of Oregon’s Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to conduct a range of real estate evaluation and analysis services. The work includes helping to determine the highest and best use of surplus properties; recommending best practices for leasing and building office space for employees; reviewing development proposals for surplus properties; and reducing costs in the State’s portfolio of leased properties.
The overall goals were to reduce the State’s real-estate related costs, revise the State’s best practices and guidelines, re-purpose, and optimize its assets. Brian Vanneman and Trond Ingvaldsen continue to be the project managers throughout this engagement.
