Cowater International Inc. - 8,000 SF Send Us An Email
A before and after look at the office project Cresa completed for Cowater International Inc. in Ottawa, Canada. When we met Cowater they were in 8,000 square feet of old and tired space. During the process we showed them how they could increase the seat count by 50% without having to lease more space, while dramatically improving the look and feel of their offices.
Have a look. You won't believe this is the same space.
"The result of the Cresa project is a fantastic office space. A happy staff, a happy company, and a happy Ceo. Without hesitation I would say you be taken care of. You're in good hands."

On behalf of IMS Health, I am very pleased to provide you with a letter of reference covering my experience with you and your team at Cresa.
From the onset of Cresa’s engagement, until the day our local office took possession of our new space, you and your organization have been an essential part of my extended facilities team.
Your vision and insight allowed IMS Health to realize savings in Ottawa of over $300,000 per year by leading us to adopt a new accommodation standard which, not only saved us money, also significantly improved our staffs workplace environment.
Throughout this project, I was impressed that you took the time to get to know our local staff and ensured that significant effort was made to engage our employees in the process.
You are clearly thought leaders in your industry in your approach and have made a real difference in what we perceive to be possible, locally and across IMS Health’s global real estate portfolio.
The Cresa approach to integrating strategy, negotiations and project management just made it so easy.
You kept me informed at all times and managed to overcome some significant IT related delays that, though no fault of yours, could have proven disastrous to our schedule and budget if not for your skilled troubleshooting.
And you still managed to come in under budget!
I have been involved in managing global real estate portfolios for over twenty years and without a doubt can attest that the quality of Cresa’s services and the results you achieved for IMS Health place you and your team among the best in the industry.
I hope you never change your approach to the business. You clearly put the needs of the client first and foremost and I would recommend you to anyone considering hiring Cresa in the future.
Director, Real Estate
