Scaryduck talks about the BBC/LandSec outsourcing deal in passing:

The sale of BBC Technology killed of the illusion of St Greg in some quarters, as did the outsourcing of property management and the construction of the Grey Lubyanka in White City, where jobs would mysteriously disappear en route from other locations.

It’s interesting to view the deal, which saw developer Land Securities effectively become the BBC’s property manager and partner, from the inside, because from the outside, or at least the property industry, it’s viewed as a roaring success and a model for the future.
