Delivering knowledge, innovation and collaboration
Capstan Advisors help corporate real estate executives design and implement new organization, process and outsourcing solutions that improve service quality and property portfolio management. We consult with Fortune 1000 companies across a wide range of industries on transformational projects that improve decision making, reduce costs and raise the stature of the CRE organization across the enterprise.
Capstan consultants have served as corporate real estate directors managing millions of square feet of space, service providers managing global teams of facilities, transactions and project managers, and consultants managing hundreds of real estate client engagements. CRE leaders trust experienced Capstan Advisors to create roadmaps for change and facilitate transformation projects.
The characteristics that set us apart from other consultants are:
Experienced Team That Does the Work – Our advisors each have 25+ years of experience as CRE executives at major corporations, service providers and/or global consulting firms. And, our advisors are hands-on consultants that do the work, not delegate it to junior staff.
Broad Real Estate and Facilities Expertise - We have in depth knowledge of corporate real estate from both client and service provider perspectives, including facilities and project management, portfolio management and transactions, lease administration and finance and a wide variety of site services.
Collaborative Approach – We are known for our approach to managing collaborative sessions with client teams to refine organization structures and internal processes, and for solution sessions we use to develop win-win solutions that align the interests of clients and potential service providers.
Robust Tool Set – We have a library of guiding principles, service mapping tools, position descriptions, cost and productivity benchmarks, service levels and KPIs, and web-based tools for data collection and analysis for every process in the CRE/FM life cycle.
