Over the past 10 years we have advised ActionAid at board level on all of their UK real estate decisions, after initially being instructed by ActionAid to find their new London HQ. Their main objective was to secure a larger space, in a more central location without incurring much higher costs.
Following a full Stay or Leave Analysis project, DeVono sourced a large and diverse selection of suitable properties for our client, and within the results we identified a unique opportunity – a building at the early stages of substantial redevelopment by the freeholder. We proposed ActionAid to the landlord as a prospective anchor tenant and managed to secure advantageous lease terms, and huge savings for the client.
DeVono later advised ActionAid on their rent review of their space, and further supported them on the disposal of surplus space within their HQ.
