What sets us apart

As a small-scale independent business your patronage means more to us and our focus is on results, not the number of clients. Maximising the financial outcome from a property or project sale or lease offering, a project development, or an acquisition, involves making important decisions. We understand this and are committed to ensuring the process is as straight forward as possible for the stakeholders involved through effective communication, provision of relevant, timely and high quality information and removal of barriers. Our deep experience, knowledge and systems allow us to provide a truly professional service and achieve an optimum result for our clients — regardless of the magnitude or complexity of the task.

Ricoh Head Office

Property Advisory & Project Marketing

Ricoh Head Office is the former Auckland headquarters for property and construction firm Mainzeal who were placed in receivership (and subsequently liquidation) in early 2013. Our involvement for the client was focused on initial financial modelling of the investment opportunity, acquisition of the property from PwC (Mainzeal receivers), design-development for a substantial building extension, consenting, marketing and procurement of a 10 year lease by international firm Ricoh of 3,000 sqm of refurbished and new A-grade office space. The investment feasibility and occupier lease structuring was complex given uncertainty regarding the future cost of two underlying ground leases.
