Coughlin and Gerhardt Headquarters
Coughlin & Gerhart LLP

Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP ("C & G") is a multi-service law firm that spends extraordinary time and effort to get to know and understand their client and appreciate their challenges. They pride themselves on building strong customer relationships through empathy, understanding, and superior service. They hired us as Tenant Representatives and Construction Managers to help them obtain a building that reflected this human, client-centric approach. The true challenge was to find a space that supported C&G’s vision at a time when recent flooding had virtually wiped out all commercial space availability.

> Secure distinctive class A office space in the Binghamton area

> Find suitable space in a market depleted by recent flooding

> Construct an environment supportive of C&G’s, clients, staff, vision, and brand

> Reviewed existing market opportunities in our designated areas

> Vetted properties against C&G’s business and real estate objectives

> Unearthed potential build-to-suit and redevelopment opportunities

> Maintained competitive pressure on landlords to deliver reasonable rates

> We secured an off-market property that was available for lease through NYSEG

> We negotiated several months of free rent and major common area improvements funded by the landlord

> We were able to achieve a below-market rate, with tenant friendly renewal, expansion, and termination options

> We are able to complete the build out in 100 days with top-of-the-line finishes, on a modified schematic design-build-bid basis

> We managed change orders and scope discrepancies to save the tenant $50,000 and added 500 SF of space at no cost

> C&G's new home provides high visibility, easy access to major highways, ample parking, a customer friendly reception, and dedicated collaborative spaces, all perfectly suited to serve the needs of their clients
