Teamwork achieves more

Teamwork & interdisciplinary work ensure the very best coordination within MEC and in collaboration with our clients and partners. Because our approaches to work are coordinated and we take steps forward in the right order.

Our team approach and interdisciplinary way of thinking take us all forward. Each of us can contribute to the team and make us successful. That is why we work together and across all departments in order to always find optimum solutions with innovative approaches for our clients (link to ‘Client and market focus’).

The interplay of individual services provides valuable synergies and lean processes. Only by working together can we keep everything in sight. We support each other as a team and, at the same time, foster the individual strengths of each individual.

How do we do it? It’s right here.

We have created a digital fitness centre for our fit and vibrant brand to enable us all to communicate and share information with each other: the internal Brand Fitness website and the associated Teams channel for sharing experiences. Comments, questions, successes, and observations can be posted there and shared with other MEC employees. This is how we work together to strengthen our team coordination.

Our coordination training has paid off:

T.E.C. refurbishment project, Erfurt

We extensively altered and freshened up the appearance of the T.E.C. shopping mall in Erfurt in a coordinated project – working across all departments and with external support. The aim was to offer customers of the retail centre a contemporary shopping experience in a relaxed environment, while at the same time future-proofing the T.E.C.

Dreieich Nordpark refurbishment project

Another major refurbishment project is currently underway in Dreieich Nordpark. By 2024 we will restructure our center and completely reposition it. Approval for the realization of the new overall concept, which the interdisciplinary MEC team developed on behalf of the owner, is available.

Now it's time to start the diverse conversion work inside and on the outside facade. The MEC team developed the design language together with the renowned architectural office TBI Architecture & Engineering and steguweit brand perspectives. The designs resulting from the collaboration show what it should look like on site in the future. The tenant logos shown serve as examples.

Since we also provide operational site management on site – consisting of center management, leasing management and technical property management – ​​from a single source, our leasing colleagues are already in intensive lease negotiations with well-known new dealers. We have already been able to win Kaufland as an anchor tenant, and Woolworth will open again in 2023.

Portfolio Teams

Portfolio Teams are the epitome of our interdisciplinary teamwork: Teamwork: The team always consists of Commercial Asset Management (CAM), Centre Management (CM) and Leasing Management (LM) or Property Management (PM) for PM remits. By combining our expertise, we pool our strength in a coordinated way for the retail properties we manage. This collaboration generates better ideas – not least because of the active dialogue we have with each other. Check out pages 9–10 and 12–13 of our image brochure for more on our way of working.

Digitalisation of MEC

Very clear right from the start: we ask our colleagues what they need for IT applications. All departments were represented and actively contributed to the development. Formerly linked to Metro IT, we have had our own tailor-made IT since the beginning of 2022.

The following also applies to the future: Each of the MEC colleagues can actively participate and pass on their ideas and needs to the IT team - as an internal customer request. Of course, the following applies to the current change: support is a top priority for the MEC team. This gives us the potential to achieve new competitive advantages through digital innovations. 

Talent wins games. But teamwork wins championships.

That’s how we keep fit
