New York, NY, February 20, 2013 – Labrador Technology (www.labradortech.com) has recently completed an engagement with a leading Investment Management Firm with over $400 billion in assets under management. With over 3,000 employees located across more than 40 cities internationally, the client’s real estate portfolio is widespread and complex. In the closing months of 2012, they decided to reposition their U.S. space portfolio to improve efficiency at twelve (12) branch offices, one back office facility, and their New York headquarters.

Labrador was brought on to be responsible for all technology elements of the real estate efficiency program and to report directly to the IT management team located at the client’s NYC headquarters. Working with the facilities, construction, and business stakeholders, Labrador was the single point of contact for all information technology elements of the real estate program. Consolidating responsibilities in this way helped ensure seamless efforts across the roughly 75,000 SQF in branch office space as well the updates at the headquarters.

As a global company with significant international investments, downtime needed to be minimized during all project work. Some of the offices also included subleased space, which further complicated matters. Labrador worked closely with the local teams at each of the offices to ensure downtime was minimized and communication with tenants was handled appropriately for all technology related work.

Labrador’s expertise in IT project management and infrastructure design ensured consistent quality across each project. Additionally, using standard infrastructure specifications and aggregate material orders for the entire portfolio allowed Labrador to negotiate bulk pricing, which significantly lowered the overall cost to the client.

The project timeline was aggressive, starting in September 2012 and completing in December 2012. Labrador was up to the task and helped this client improve their U.S. real estate portfolio, while maintaining continuity of day-to-day operations.
