In 2010, with roughly two years left on their existing lease at the US Bancorp Tower, KPFF Consulting Engineers wanted to secure their long-term office space requirements. With limited alternatives available, it became critical to start the evaluation process immediately.
Broker Tom Becic, who had represented KPFF for years, prepared a detailed market overview identifying existing and future space availability, considering several alternative properties. Through Tom, KPFF continued to pursue the alternatives, working through the space planning process, evaluating construction costs, estimating relocation expenses and performing a legal review of the lease. By creating a balanced negotiation, Melvin Mark was ultimately able to secure favorable terms for KPFF.
