Corporate Real Estate Portfolio
Optimizing your portfolio of buildings benefits employees, shareholders, and your bottom line
Buildings that work operate efficiently while providing quality environments for employees and customers. A corporate real estate strategy that works will support your business strategy, enhance the bottom line, and increase shareholder value. Johnson Controls works with customers all over the world to achieve these results and benefits.
Agilent Technologies, in Santa Clara, California, for example, partnered with Johnson Controls to reinvent its real estate, energy and facilities strategies, and saved $4.9 million in just seven months. Whereas ManpowerGroup, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, worked with Johnson Controls to find a more efficient, cost-effective way to manage its 750 branch offices in North America and its world headquarters. As a result, it has saved $32 million in operational, maintenance, and real estate costs across these facilities.
Johnson Controls manages more than 1.5 billion square feet of real estate for Fortune 1000 companies in more than 75 countries and ensures that business customers have exactly the right kind and amount of space they need, in the right places, at the right time, at the right cost – and that their spaces work cost-effectively and sustainably. Your real estate portfolio can work this way for you.
Contributing to the bottom line
Your workplaces provide opportunities to make big contributions to your company’s bottom line. By focusing on the entire building lifecycle, then applying the right expertise where and when needed, we’ll help you make certain that your workplaces positively contribute to your performance. Put simply, that means increased energy efficiency, improved financial performance, lower risk and enhanced image and reputation, to generate more shareholder value.
Johnson Controls will partner with your facilities managers and staff to meet your corporate sustainability goals, reduce energy costs, and operate more efficiently. By deploying state-of-the-art equipment, systems, and controls, you can minimize energy consumption and costs and maximize comfort. Through the implementation of renewable energy solutions, you can make your buildings cleaner, greener, and more sustainable. We will work with you to make those improvements happen, and we’ll help you design workplaces that use space more efficiently for the number of people actually working there, while eliminating excess space and operating costs.
Develop a real estate strategy aligned with business goals
We’ll help you develop a corporate real estate strategy aligned with your business goals. We’ll gather information on each of your locations and leases. Using the capabilities of the Sequentra® real estate database management system and our Global WorkPlace Knowledge Center, we can provide you with greater visibility into your real estate portfolio – what you have, where you have it, how it’s used, and what it costs to lease and operate — so you can make well-informed decisions on what locations to keep and how to make the best use of them.
We’ll help you identify opportunities to consolidate owned facilities and dispose of excess properties so that you can reduce your real estate footprint and costs. By knowing well ahead of time when your leases are due to expire, you can become proactive and obtain better rates when you want to renew, or avoid penalties when you choose to vacate.
