Jonathan is an award-winning commercial building surveyor and a qualified principal designer specialising in large, complex projects.

From incubator lab spaces to aircraft hangars, Jonathan’s clients will tell you he has a fastidious approach to all his projects with a drive to offer strategic and pragmatic advice that allows them to achieve their goals.

With a multitude of office and pharma lab projects for Cambridge Science Park and a key part of our team undertaking projects at Granta Park, Jonathan has a desirable understanding of how science and technology operations steer prime real estate.

Some of his most challenging projects have included taking a development management role in a ‘cut and carve’ of existing buildings into flexible incubator spaces; installing 2km of infrastructure and ductwork at Europe’s first science park; project managing the upgrade of an aircraft hangar on a top security, live airside site; and delving into complex lease terms to successfully release Sony Entertainment from their lease without penalty, resulting in a dilapidations settlement. All testament to Jonathan’s award-winning success.

His clear-thinking strategy and sound advice have enabled his clients to build, repurpose and reconfigure office, laboratory and industrial spaces that complement market demand and attract lucrative tenants.

Jonathan is a member of the Editorial Advisory Group for the RICS Built Environmental Journal. He was named RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year 2018 and is MRICS accredited.

Jonathan’s expertise and knowledgeability made us feel completely comfortable with his advice and he was a pleasure to work with, explaining things clearly and honestly at all times so that we were able to manage the expectations within our business with ease.

100 Buckingway Business Park for Sense Biodetection Ltd (a Sherlock Bio company)

Cambridge’s shortage of available lab space, particularly cleanroom facilities, was a major issue for our client.

100 Buckingway Business Park 1

Q-Arc Building, Bar Hill

Our client faced a challenge. They owned an old and unattractive building that needed a major upgrade to attract modern tenants. Plus, with our help, they had recovered almost all of the dilapidations claim against the outgoing tenant, leaving the building vacant and ready for modernisation.


Granta Park

The development of Granta Park into one of Cambridge’s finest research locations has stemmed from a long-term vision and relentless focus on the details.
