September 6, 2019 – Cresa Managing Principal/Project Management James A. Pirot and Ronald Zeccardi, Senior Vice President/Project Management, have completed the build-out of the newest location for The Siegfried Group (Siegfried) at 3975 Freedom Circle in Santa Clara, CA. The 9,336-square-foot office in the heart of Silicon Valley is the third project that the New York-based project management team has implemented for the accounting giant, which also includes a 12,400-square-foot full-floor space at 90 Park Avenue and another in Atlanta.
“Siegfried has a distinct brand aesthetic, which must be adapted to each office layout and size,” says Zeccardi. “Our colleague Josh Rand has identified office space that meets the client’s criteria and transacted favorable leases. Our role on the project management side is to achieve the desired design and layouts by coordinating with local landlords, architects, engineers and contractors.”
Following this latest project, Pirot and Zeccardi will spearhead the build-outs at Siegfried’s three expansions and relocations in Denver, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey. Cresa Senior Vice President Josh Rand, who is based in the Los Angeles office, was responsible for the site selection and lease transactions for all six of the locations, as well as all of Siegfried’s projects since 2015.
“Cresa has been a great partner to us, especially as we continue to grow and expand,” said Steve Smith, Director of Facilities at Siegfried. “They are professional, attentive, and use a collaborative approach to getting results that offer the best value. Cresa is constantly looking ahead to bring us new ideas and methods, and that’s something we truly appreciate.”
Adds Mr. Pirot, “Long before a lease is executed, a key component of our due diligence is to analyze a space and consult with the client on whether it meets brand standards and utility. And after the lease is executed, we immediately prepare and send out requests for proposal, negotiate contracts, and retain the best professionals for the project. It is a multi-layered approach on behalf of the client.”
Siegfried took possession of the Santa Clara office on August 19, 2019.
