      Shortlisting and Selection Process

      Your site has development potential, but you need a partner to help unlock its full value. Choosing the right one is not always a matter of simply picking the highest bidder.

      Creating a new home for science in one of the largest innovation districts in Europe

      We help you take that first step, identifying your requirements, the parties who can meet them and ultimately, help you choose the right partner.

      Understanding what you really want is the key to achieving it. Asking the right questions is crucial. A financial offer may appear fantastic, but it is not always realistic.  

      Do you need to carry out a comprehensive process with strict selection criteria, or would you prefer a more limited competition and choose more quickly from a shortlist?  

      Either way, we help you find a partner with interests aligned to yours, who you can trust to work their hardest in achieving your shared objectives.   

      Promoting and delivering development can be a long and complicated process. Choosing a capable partner that you trust is vital - we’ll help you do just that
