CBRE has been awarded the 2021 H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator Award from CoreNet Global, the world’s premier association for corporate real estate professionals, economic developers and service providers. CBRE was recognized for the development of Office Ready, the firm’s quick design-to-deliver solution that takes the complexity out of office buildouts so organizations can focus on their business.

The Global Innovator Award recognizes excellence and innovation in corporate real estate. Since 2000, the award has honored “game changers” in the commercial real estate industry — individuals and companies whose work, ideas and best practices elevate the practice of corporate real estate.

“Office Ready started out as a concept to help smaller occupiers achieve high-quality, great design delivered via a seamless process for their office space,” said Tina Lamkey, Senior Director, CBRE Design Collective and creative lead for Office Ready. “Now, it’s expanded to a global product addressing the requirements of all occupiers and investors that need to stand up small- to mid-sized spaces quickly.”

Office Ready is a fully tech-enabled product that brings the full spectrum of CBRE’s project management capabilities to clients in an accessible way. Leveraging CBRE technology, users can plan, design and take a virtual tour of their space in a matter of minutes rather than weeks as with traditional office buildouts.

Best suited for small to mid-sized (5,000 to 30,000 sq. ft.) spaces, Office Ready offers a seamless process from design-to-delivery that is both cost-effective and efficient. Users can expect to see up to 30 percent supply chain cost savings and 20 percent faster delivery of their finished space. At the same time, Office Ready’s thoughtful, pre-built design options from CBRE’s award-winning design team ensure users don’t have to compromise on design while still realizing excellent value on their real estate investments.

“In a year when office occupiers have had to reevaluate their real estate strategies and financial investments quickly, Office Ready has enhanced our ability to help clients deliver new solutions despite rapidly evolving work requirements,” said Lenny Beaudoin, Executive Managing Director, Workplace and Design. “CoreNet’s recognition of Office Ready is a testament to our ability to deliver differentiated solutions that our clients can’t get anywhere else.” The CBRE team recently completed an Office Ready project for Atlanta-based biotechnology company Expression Therapeutics. CBRE’s project management and design teams leveraged Office Ready to quickly design and deliver a facility just outside Cincinnati, OH that houses a gene therapy research team.
