ESTON International assisted in finding a new HQ for the tech-giant
The US-based LabCorp life sciences company, whose drug development segment is known as Covance, successfully completed the acquisition of Chiltern in 2017. The aim was to strengthen their position as a global life sciences company with leading diagnostics and drug development businesses. A change of this size in a company’s life requires office expansions, change management and relocation. The two companies, Chiltern and Covance, were initially located in Allee Corner and Canada Square. Neither of these locations were able to fulfill the requirements after the merger. As a best option, the two companies decided move to a new joint location that offered a larger office area and a higher level of service and ESTON International was the partner selected to identify the new location. The optimal solution was the Residence Offices situated in District II. The property was chosen due to the excellent location, the level of service, and the leasable area, all of which perfectly suited the client. The move-in to the new 600 sq m office was completed in March 2019. The Residence Office Buildings belong to the LFPI Group that represented on the Hungarian market by FLE GmbH.
Hosting a Shared Services Center in an office building requires a great spectrum of services and know-how from the agency side. Flowserve chose ESTON International based on our experience.
We welcome them to their new office in Nordic Light. Congratulations to Nikolett Svéger, Senior Consultant for her work and contribution.
Lendületben az irodapiac – derül ki az ESTON új kutatásából
A budapesti bérirodák piacán dinamikus kereslet-bővülésnek lehettünk tanúi az elmúlt három évben. A szakértők szerint ennek még nincs vége.
2018-ban rekord szintre emelkedett a budapesti bérirodák iránti kereslet: az összes kiadott terület meghaladta az 530 ezer négyzetmétert; erre korábban csak 2015-ben volt példa. Piaci szereplők osztják a véleményt, hogy a növekedés dinamikája szükségszerűen csökken a közeljövőben, de a részleteket nézve úgy látszik, a coworking irodák új lendületet adhatnak a kereslet bővülésének.
Salamon Adorján, az ESTON International Zrt. vezérigazgatója szerint a nagyobb szolgáltatók már jelen vannak a budapesti irodapiacon, de a verseny a jövőben tovább éleződik. „Tapasztalataink szerint az Egyesült Államokban és a Nyugat Európában már bevált formula itthon is egyre nagyobb népszerűségnek örvend, és a korábban 1500-2000 négyzetmétert kereső szolgáltatók ma már jóval nagyobb, akár 4-5 ezer négyzetéteres bérleményeket keresnek operációjuk biztosítására. Közismert, hogy a jelenlegi piaci helyzet nem igazán kedvez a nagyobb bérlőknek, hiszen mozgásterük elsősorban a még építés alatt álló irodaházakra korlátozódik.” A szakember szerint lenne igény arra, hogy Budapest dinamikusabban zárkózzon fel a nyugati trendekhez, hiszen egyre több cég ismeri fel, hogy hatékonyságának növeléséhez a munkavállalói igények kiszolgálásán át vezet az út. A coworking irodaterek jellemzően elsődleges lokációkon, kiválóan megközelíthető épületekben találhatók, ahol az irodai munka mindig újszerű, igényes és változatos környezetben zajlik. A kulcs a rugalmasság, a legfőbb felhasználók lendületes start-up vállalkozások, vagy akár multinacionális nagyvállalatok, ahol sok tevékenységet projekt-feladatként delegálnak.

ESTON’s International Property Management team (PM), who have been present on the market for 25 years, has won the operation of the newly handed over Advance Tower Office building, which is owned by Futureal-group. ESTON is especially proud to be working with a prominent developer such as Futureal. The office building has a leasable area of 12,100 m² and they also possess BREEAM certificate. The building process is in its second phase now.
ESTON started the operation of its property management branch (PM) in 2012 with the aim to become the market leader in the property management market. The primary task of the branch is to support the Client in carrying out their portfolio plans, furthermore to maximize the profit of Owners and Investors by enhancing tenants’ satisfaction. Their success is highlighted by the increasing number of Clients. What’s more, their work was awarded by winning the prize of the Property Management Company of the Year in 2017 at the Office of the Year competition.
The 8-storey ’A’ category office building developed by Futureal-group was designed by Paulinyi-Reith & Partners Architectural Studio. The specially designed glass surfaces in Advance Tower ensure that the offices in the building get ample natural light. The property is equipped with smart solutions and sustainable technologies, therefore intelligent building management, automated shading system optimizing the sunshine, intelligent watering system on the roof-garden and low-emission heating-cooling system can also be found in the property.
The first phase of the Advance Tower, which has also got BREEAM-certificate, was designed and operated according to the WELL Building Standard qualification (WELL). The aim of the WELL-qualification is to establish office buildings which take into consideration not only the environmental impact but also the health, well-being and comfort of the people working there. The International WELL Building Institute with its headquarters in Washington examines the effects buildings have on the human body, people’s health and general well-being on the basis of seven aspects – air supply, water, access to healthy food, natural light, physical exercise, comfort and mental fitness. Currently there are more than 30 office buildings around the world which possess WELL pre-qualification. Futureal-group, the first European developer, managed to obtain WELL Platinum pre-qualification for three of its projects.
Mr. Adorján Salamon, General Manager of ESTON said “We are very proud that our PM team achieved such a big success in such a short time and that we could expand our portfolio with the operation of a new office building. We guarantee that thanks to our devoted experts our new Partners will get the best possible service and we will do everything to satisfy all their needs.”
“The innovations based on WELL-qualification set the trends of the next decade in the office market. Advance Tower is the trailblazer of this trend not just in Hungary but in Europe too” – said Tibor Tatár, General Manager of Futureal. “Futureal-group is committed to realizing all its future office-building developments according to the WELL principles, hence people’s health as part of environment consciousness is considered to be the most important factor in the design process” – he added.

I expect the property market will continue to grow and also our company will close more deals this year.

We established our Property Management (PM) branch in 2012 with our main aim being to become the market leader in the field of property management in the capital and to provide full support to our Clients in realising their portfolio plans. Owing to our flexible and effective services we have achieved outstanding professional acknowledgement in our market during the past couple of years.

We strive to provide client experience, as a result of which none of our contracts have been stopped. Thanks to our business approach the PM branch has become one of the main pillars of ESTON’s operation, we have a domestic portfolio of over 180 thousand square metre office space and we continue to grow.
The Office of the Year prize was awarded to an innovative, state-of-the-art office designed for ACG creative agency by Arch-Studio. The office was remodelled by ESTON PM team. The main concept of the office located in Margit Palace Office Building is based on the six human senses, which is not only innovative and artistic but also outstanding in its functionality. During the course of the design it was important that the departments were close to each other but at the same time they could work in peaceful and quiet surroundings, furthermore they have the chance to relax and ponder when the need arises.
In addition to participating in the award winning The Office of the Year project we are very proud to announce that ESTON won the Property Management Company of the Year award.
The Office of the Year competition is a high quality, professionally renowned event, which is organised every year with the aim of supporting and awarding companies and market players who establish lasting and significant values in the domestic property market. The competition was organised for the seventh time this year and set new records in every category, since they received 136 applications in 9 categories. This is why we are extremely proud that ESTON was present in two award winning projects.
Mr. Adorján Salamon, ESTON’s managing director commented about the prize: „We are very proud that we managed to reach success in such short period of time and that we won the Property Management Company of the year award at the Office of the Year gala event. We would like to thank our Clients for their trust in us and the property profession jury for their acknowledgement!”
