German term or phrase: Flächenbewirtschaftungsvereinbarung
This is the title of a contract for a clothing company which is using shop space owned by another company.
I have translated it as "Shop floor management agreement"
...but this is my first translation job and I'm concerned it's not accurate (or legally accurate, anyway)
Any ideas?

space management agreement


Explanation:
I generally associate "Bewirtschaftung" with "management".

For example, see the translation used in the KMC Management Consultants bilingual website:
German: "Flächenbewirtschaftung/ - management" (http://www.kmconsultants.com/cms/index.php?id=7&L=1)
English: "Floor / space management" (http://www.kmconsultants.com/cms/index.php?id=7&L=0)

The LEO forum also suggests the use of "floor management" as a translation of "Flächenbewirtschaftung" (http://dict.leo.org/forum/viewUnsolvedquery.php?idThread=187...

And if you Google "space management" you will find many examples relating to real estate.

neutral  hazmatgerman (X): this seems an agreement about providing shopfloor space, not about managing same. Or am I mistaken?
