LOS ANGELES-CB Richard Ellis Group has landed two new assignments in the services arena, adding to a list of new contracts that has been growing steadily of late. One of the new assignments is for facilities management of Automatic Data Processing Inc.’s 6.7-million-square-foot portfolio, the other with Ontario Realty Corp. for real estate services for the Ontario provincial government in Canada, which will be handled by CBRE Canada.

Roseland, NJ-based Automatic Data Processing is one of the world’s largest providers of business outsourcing solutions, with nearly $9 billion in revenues and more than 585,000 clients. CBRE is ADP’s first outside facilities management provider, notes Bill Concannon, vice chairman of Global Corporate Services for CB Richard Ellis.

CBRE’s five-year assignment with ADP will cover the Roseland, NJ-based company’s more than 200 facilities across the US. CB Richard Ellis’ Global Corporate Services team will oversee facilities management services including utilities, security, repair and maintenance, facilities accounting and reporting for ADP.

For Ontario Realty Corp., CBRE Canada will provide integrated real estate services including property and facilities management, project management, transaction management, strategic consulting and lease administration services. ORC provides real estate services to the Ontario government, including strategic portfolio management, asset management, property and land management and capital projects. Stefan Ciotlos, president of CBRE Canada, notes that in conjunction with ORC, CBRE will continue to implement sustainability programs including energy efficiency, green cleaning, recycling, waste reduction, energy management training and LEED certification.

The ADP and Ontario Realty Corp. assignments reflect the continued growth of CBRE’s Global Corporate Services business, which―in addition to the new ADP and Ontario contracts―this year has added or expanded relationships with clients including Cox Enterprises, Nokia and Nissan. Brett White, president and CEO of CBRE, noted in the company’s quarterly conference call last week that the real estate services giant’s outsourcing business “continues to perform well” in the recession. “In the current operating environment, many new clients are embracing the concept of outsourcing as a means to save on real estate operating costs,” White said in the call.
