28 June, 2010 Asia — CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) announced today that its Hong Kong office and Asia Pacific Headquarters will move from Central Plaza in Wanchai to Three Exchange Square in Central on 5 July, 2010.
“At Three Exchange Square we have sought to create a collaborative work space for our people to deliver great real estate solutions to our clients. The move strongly supports our corporate objectives, as a leader in this market, to continue to grow our Hong Kong business, amplify our brand and be a good corporate citizen to the environment,” said said Craig Shute, Senior Managing Director, Hong Kong for CB Richard Ellis.
CBRE is focused on improving environmental performance in both the facilities it occupies and those it manages for clients. Reflecting CBRE’s commitment to environmental sustainability the new office space has been created to minimise the impact on the environment through the use of sustainable practices and building materials.
“Our new office fit-out has been managed by CBRE’s own Project Management team – designed and constructed in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) best practices. CBRE will implement a range of measures in the new office at Three Exchange Square to lower energy consumption and achieve greater efficiencies through sustainable practices – these will help to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and operational costs,” said Craig Shute.
“The experience of being both the client and the project manager has given us some unique insights into the sustainable fit-out process that we will be able to share with our clients in the delivery of our Project Management services,” added Craig Shute.
CBRE will pursue LEED® certification for Commercial Interiors for its new office.
CBRE’s Kowloon office will also be moving later this year from its present location in Tower 5, The Gateway, Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui to Tower 6 in The Gateway. This office fit-out will also use sustainable practices and building materials.
