Moving offices and fully understanding the leasing process can be a complex and often convoluted process for commercial office tenants. There’s a multitude of considerations and as part of the decision-making process, tenants often underestimate the long-term benefits of both choosing an energy efficient space and managing this effectively.
In this national event series, federal, state and local governments are collaborating with the property sector to provide tenants with new guidance, tools and best practice for improved outcomes in the leasing process. This free event is part of a national event series in partnership with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and NABERS and aims to:
• Demonstrate the business case for choosing a high performing building;
• Help tenants choose the best space to save on operational costs and become more energy efficient;
• Support property agents and tenant advocates in delivering the latest tools and best approaches to best advise clients;
• Enable property owners to better profile commercial office space for lease.

1. The Launch of the RICS 'Leasa' App (iPhone, Android and web) and Guide for SME Office Tenants.
2. Insights into the new CitySwitch research review supporting a compelling business case as to why tenants should choose high performing buildings.
