Rich Dudek played an instrumental role in the process of sourcing and securing a suitable building for our new corporate campus in the Wilmington, Delaware market. Rich often went above and beyond the call of duty with frequent communication between the many parties involved. As this was my first time handling a project of this size, it was helpful to have someone who was trustworthy and who I could turn to for feedback and direction. I would highly recommend utilizing Rich Dudek's services and will coordinate any future real estate service needs with him.
Gerald B. Medinger, SIOR and James E. Klements, SIOR of Weber Wood Medinger/CORFAC International represented Cleveland Steel Container Corporation in the deal. To date, they have completed two deals with Cleveland Steel: a 70,000-square-foot build-to-suit in Kilgore Texas and a 100,000-square-foot 11-year lease in Glenwillow Ohio.
When we decided to expand our manufacturing capabilities in the southeastern part of the United States, we asked Weber Wood Medinger/CORFAC International (WWM) for their assistance. They established relationships with chambers of commerce, state personnel, economic development agencies, brokers, and contractors in six cities in four different states. We ultimately decided to develop a building, and WWM helped us interview and select a build-to-suit contractor. WWM was invaluable to us in every phase of this project.
Howard Properties, Ltd./CORFAC International of White Plains, NY, specializes in tenant representation and real estate consulting. Founded by veteran commercial broker Howard Greenberg, SIOR in 1998, Howard Properties has completed space acquisitions, dispositions, lease renegotiations and consulting assignments in 20 states.
Howard Greenberg found us the perfect building for our first data center. He did the research to prove to us that a former IBM facility had been built with much of the infrastructure that we needed for our new operation - and that we could save millions of dollars in construction costs. We leased 71,500 square feet for our company and have since expanded to 100,000 square feet.
We have relied on Howard for every real estate transaction Cervalis has completed since we began the business, including our 55,000 square foot Stamford facility and our newest 148,161 square foot data center in New Jersey. These are all high value, complex transactions, and we have always had confidence that Howard would research, strategize and execute our real estate plan.
