Study on the need for commercial space in the Emscher-Lippe region
For the Chamber of Industry and Commerce North Westphalia and the Chamber of Crafts and Skilled Trades Münster, GWS investigates the quantitative and qualitative demand for commercial space in the Emscher-Lippe region. It deals with the demand of companies and businesses already resident in the district and those willing to settle in the cities of Bottrop and Gelsenkirchen, the district of Recklinghausen and the associated municipalities.
GWS is implementing the study in four individual modules within a timeframe of six months. In the first three modules, existing secondary data will be evaluated and primary data will be collected and analysed by means of its own surveys and interviews in order to determine the quantitative and qualitative space requirements. In the fourth module, the results are compiled in writing and formulated as a political demand.
