Reviewing and identifying details to support clients in making educated decisions.

Located in the catchment area of growing residential communities, the School will be operated for a leaseback period of 27 years.

Our team served as the client’s trusted advisor in the pre-acquisition phases of the project. To ensure that the client’s risks were properly managed, the team undertook a comprehensive review of the project’s status and provided a summary report that advised ENBD Reit on key risks and how to manage them.

The thorough review included payment analysis, on-site investigation and discussions with the ENBD Reit team, all completed within three weeks to meet the client’s acquisition deadline. Our delivery was efficient, budget conscious and exceeded the client’s quality and performance expectations.

As a result of our analysis, the client ultimately did not proceed with the transaction.

The Colliers Project Leaders team offered a great service on their engagement. Their team were professional and have exceptional technical background as well as extensive knowledge of the local market.”
