Global independent professional services consultancy Turner & Townsend has successfully completed a major office project for Microsoft in Munich as part of the tech giant’s European strategy to create state-of-the-art workplaces for its employees.

Dr Stefan Reimoser, Managing Director for Turner & Townsend in Germany, said: “Our relationship with Microsoft has gone from strength to strength, having consistently delivered on complex projects for the company internationally over many years, using effective planning, the right team and rigorous controls.

“For this project, our highly-experienced team in Munich was able to draw upon our extensive local and global cost benchmarking knowledge to ensure best value for money, and achieve all Microsoft’s objectives of creating what is an exceptional building for its employees.”

John Lenz, Real Estate Portfolio Manager in Germany for Microsoft, added: “The relocation to larger offices in Munich has been seamless, thanks to the professionalism of Turner & Townsend.
