Turner & Townsend delivers 'Office of the Future' for Microsoft's new German HQ

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.

The new offices, which will act as Microsoft’s headquarters in Germany, is located in Munich. The 26,000m2 high-tech building houses 1,100 work stations and is based on Microsoft’s vision of creating an ‘Office of the Future’.

With unassigned work spaces, multiple break-out areas including formal and informal meeting rooms and outside terraces, it showcases the company’s values of transparency and openness.

Turner & Townsend was appointed as part of a global framework to provide project and cost management services and carried out feasibility studies, due diligence on the preferred site option, management of the entire project lifecycle, procurement of construction experts and the relocation to the new premises.

Turner & Townsend has a long-standing relationship with Microsoft, having worked for them on projects all over the world including Belgium, Germany, Kenya, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Mauritius, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, the UK and the USA.

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.

“It has been a hugely complex job coordinating multiple stakeholders and I’m impressed with the result – an office of the future with numerous break-out areas and spaces to creatively think, share and discuss.”
