NELSON Worldwide Partners with Swivel to Improve Office Leasing Experience

Landlords and leasing managers can effectively showcase their spaces to a broad audience and easily collaborate online with customers to visualize what a space will look like after a build-out.

FREMONT, CA: Global architecture, design, and strategy firm NELSON Worldwide announced its partnership with Swivel, an Austin-based digital leasing platform for office space. The partnership enables NELSON to provide Swivel’s enhanced 3-D visualization technology to help prospective clients explore and interact with commercial real estate virtually. The platform offers best-in-class features such as design option toggles to showcase different build-out options and design schemes, which vary in price and aesthetic.

“We are excited to work alongside NELSON Worldwide to help landlords and property owners showcase the full value of their commercial spaces,” said Scott Harmon, CEO, Swivel. “We are confident that NELSON’s world-class client base will enjoy the instant value that such a visual and dynamic tenant interaction platform brings to the leasing process.”

With the onset of COVID-19, lockdowns and social distancing compelled many companies to embrace a work-from-home strategy and rethink their office utilization. Now, given an increasingly competitive leasing environment and rising vacancy rates, companies are looking for ways to attract employees through a more appealing use of space. Reaching beyond the status quo of traditional digital tours, Swivel shows users what a space will look like upon completion with several layout options to choose from, as well as fully-built-out suites in a virtual experience. The ease of operation of Swivel’s innovative digital technologies will reduce vacancy times by improving tenant confidence that a space will meet their needs.

“There has never been a better time to collaborate with Swivel,” said John “Ozzie” Nelson Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, NELSON Worldwide. “We are enthusiastic about what is yet to come for the future of the workplace,” “Living in a digitally-forward environment, Swivel is paving the way alongside our diverse market sectors to envision what is possible in spaces of different sizes and locations.”

At NELSON, using state-of-the-art technology has always been a staple, breathing life into realistic models of architectural design concepts in a wide array of digital mediums. Today, the firm’s design visualization services include pre-viz to photorealistic, interior, and exterior renderings, stylized imagery, video and animation, and virtual and augmented reality.
