We manage buildings, assets, suppliers and people to achieve our clients’ highest possible ROI.

CBRE delivers an integrated solution for clients seeking to outsource facilities management (FM) and maintenance services.

We achieve unmatched value through single-source accountability, streamlined operations and partnered purchasing strategies that reduce cost, enhance uptime and drive workplace experience. We tailor our solutions to meet the unique goals of each client and draw on the world’s deepest and most experienced operations support structure to solve those goals. With a CBRE solution in place, our clients can focus on their core business because we will ensure their portfolio remains safe, effectively run and efficiently managed thanks to the industry’s most skilled talent and best-in-class technologies.

How do we do it? CBRE’s unique operating model. The Five Drivers of Measurably Superior FM:

1. Integrated Management

1. Integrated Management

We consolidate budgets, people, contracts, data, technology, and performance accountability into a unified delivery model that shifts non-core functions to CBRE. Our management services stand out from the competition because of consistent operational excellence practices around the world, as well as unmatched attention to safety, compliance, and sustainability.
2. Self-Perform Advantage

2. Self-Perform Advantage

CBRE maintenance teams deliver work orders at a lower overall cost than industry vendors, resulting in higher client satisfaction scores and response rates.
3. Supply Chain Advantage

3. Supply Chain Advantage

In four recent acquisitions, we averaged remarkable net supply chain savings. We also out-perform within individual spend categories like food, janitorial, security, and grounds: in those same four client portfolios we considerably beat industry benchmarks and competitor costs. And CBRE’s success goes beyond just cost savings—our new technology-enabled Supplier Performance Management program improved satisfaction scores significantly from 2019 to 2020.
4. Asset Performance & Energy Excellence

4. Asset Performance & Energy Excellence

CBRE identifies “uncontrollable” costs that make up nearly half of your facilities spend that often hide in obsolete equipment, variable utility bills and emergency capital expenditure. Since 2017, our data-driven approach has created hundreds of millions of energy cost savings for clients, while also removing 477 million pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere. Our innovative Energy-as-a-Service offering stands poised to revolutionize the industry, and has already delivered 500+ energy conservation projects for clients globally.
5. Global Shared Platforms

5. Global Shared Platforms

Clients that take advantage of CBRE’s technologies, shared services centers, and smart buildings teams receive leading tools with advantaged pricing. These clients can leverage CBRE’s technology and innovation investments and tap into our scale for cost efficiencies. They do this with the assurance of world-class compliance, information security, and resiliency.
