Cushman & Wakefield is now in the process of building a new design and build platform within its project and development services team, which in Central and Eastern Europe will be headed by Glyn Evans. Based in Prague, Evans has more than ten years of experience in delivering project management and commercial fit-out services in the region, having previously worked at JLL (as the director of project management CEE) and Tétris (as the company’s managing director in the Czech Republic).
“The ability to deliver design, project management and construction services under a single turnkey contract is something commercial occupiers and owners are turning to more and more. Owners and occupiers no longer perceive investment into the workplace as simply an extra cost – instead, they view it as a necessary investment in the quality of the working environment, which is reflected in both tenant interest and employee productivity. Well designed and delivered interiors are also the key to recruiting and retaining a new workforce,” Evans commented.
