CBRE is the world’s leading outsourcing service providers for integrated facilities management with special expertise in technical services and industrial services. Global Workplace Solutions’ experienced teams can take on total management of our clients’ buildings as part of an outsourcing partnership, or deliver specific technical services. The spectrum ranges from integrated comprehensive solutions (facilities management, cleaning, catering, security and maintenance) for commercial offices, to the operation and maintenance of production facilities, to specialist services such as calibration. Whatever model our clients choose, we develop holistic solutions, tailored to their particular needs. We manage properties and assets in a safe, compliant, energy-efficient and cost-efficient way, while providing first-class service.

Expertise from the market leader in technical services


Deep technical expertise is at the heart of our offering. With 14,500 highly-qualified technicians worldwide, we self-perform more technical facilities management services than any other company. Our staff are experts in their field and undertake regular training and professional development, reducing risk and allowing our clients to fully trust us with their business critical data centres, labs or production facilities. For cleaning, catering or security services, we manage qualified strategic partners. With our results-driven business models, we help our clients to achieve their commercial objectives. For example, we can take over the operation and financing of new power, compressed air or ventilation systems with a contracting agreement, reducing maintenance costs while increasing productivity. We are the world’s largest buyer of infrastructural facilities management services with a volume of 4 billion USD per year, so our clients benefit from the best-quality service on more favourable terms.
