Case Study

Global Data Consortium


The Issue

In Spring 2020, Global Data Consortium (GDC) was outgrowing their existing headquarters in Downtown Raleigh.

With a looming lease expiration and the need to hire locally as well as nationally, GDC needed to find a physical space that would promote collaboration and company values.

Furthermore, GDC required a space that was both attractive to potential new talent while allowing flexibility to grow a hybrid-remote workforce.


The Solution

Beginning with multiple on-site meetings to understand short- and long-term business goals, Davis Moore and GDC were able to establish a partnership that would facilitate a comprehensive market search for a new office.

Multiple property tours and financial analysis with key stakeholders led to a competitive process wherein Davis Moore was able to create leverage and favorable terms for GDC.


The Benefit

Through our proven process Davis Moore assisted Global Data Consortium to secure space at Pilot Mill by early 2021.

We negotiated a flexible term that aligned with GDC’s business goals and plans for the future.

Our emphasis on communication with stakeholders, and expert knowledge of the market, enabled us to quickly tour and identify the unique property that now provides an attractive environment for top-tier talent to collaborate and achieve.
