Case SEB – new head office

SEB opened a four-person delegation in Finland in 1984. Today it operates only one branch, but employs around 350 members of staff. At the turn of the 2010s, SEB’s growth meant it had already spread to two buildings on a property on Unioninkatu. The premises overall were labyrinthine and there was a large renovation on the horizon. It was time to take a look at the alternatives, and cooperation with Ecorum began. The year was 2014.

Professionals identify hidden potential

Ecorum’s team began to map and investigate leased spaces offered by various owners. Before long the team found that a building owned by LähiTapiola on Eteläesplanadi perhaps contained a solution that met all the client’s criteria and wishes. The idea seemed financially and technically feasible, even though the building’s lease agreements would have to be reorganised and the premises fully renovated.

Ecorum acted as White & Case Finland’s advisor in their premises project

Ecorum scouted the leasing market in Helsinki Central Business District for White & Case to find premises that fully support the client’s core business. Ecorum advised White & Case in the lease agreement negotiations and throughout the entire premises project. In execution phase, Ecorum tendered technical advisers and architects for the design and renovation of the new premises. As a result, Gullstén & Inkinen architects were assigned for the project.

White & Case’s new fully modernized ca. 1 500 square meter premises are located on the corner of Aleksanterinkatu and Mikonkatu, in a Jugend style property called Väinämöisenlinna.

Ecorum acted as advisor for If insurance company in Turku premises project

Ecorum scouted the premises market for best possible alternatives for If and advised the insurance company to a favorable outcome with the lease agreement negotiations. The successful premises project lead to a lease agreement extension for ca. 17 500 m2 office premises which are located in Kupittaa Turku.

The preliminary advisory work with If insurance company and Ecorum began during the first quarter of 2017. If had already outlined the goals and needs for the future premises. Ecorum’s advisers initiated the project in Spring 2017. During the first phase of the premises project property owners were contacted and various opportunities were investigated for alternative premises.

By the end of August’s deadline Ecorum had received a dozen proposals from which three best were chosen for further negotiations. Furthermore, If’s goals and needs for futures premises were fine-tuned at this stage.

After careful consideration and planning it was decided that the current premises located in Kupittaa served If’s goals and future needs the best possible way. The negotiations culminated in December 2017 when If signed the lease-extension.
