PayPal São Paulo office expansion
Delivering cost savings, project and cost management services
We provided project and cost management services to help PayPal succeed with their 490m2 office expansion in São Paulo, Brazil.
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Date started: 2018
Completion date: Ongoing
Client type: Real Estate
Key services: Cost and commercial management, procurement
PayPal occupied three floors of Edifício Bonfiglioli, a well-located building in São Paulo near other technology companies. Their growth in Brazil at the beginning of 2018 meant they needed to expand to the 17th floor (approximately 490m2).
We joined the project after the design phase had started and contributed immediately by working with the client to find opportunities to make cost savings.
We then provided project and cost management services to deliver the executive design, construction and close-out phases with positive feedback from the client, having exceeded expectations for all our KPIs.
Aaron Bean, Head of Global Design & Construction, RE+F, PayPal comments:
“The team did a fantastic job keeping the project moving forward with significant obstacles that were presented throughout the project.”
Making the difference
- Our involvement in the procurement process was key during this project, leading to approximately 60 percent cost avoidance.
- We advised and guided PayPal on design, quality and coordination issues that came up during site works. We succeeded by establishing great relationships and clear communication between all project stakeholders.
