A 50-year project to establish and evolve Europe’s first and most successful science park
We match parties to global investors with compatible aims, setting up classic 50/50 deals or something more complex using our unique network of funds and private individuals.
Orchestrating joint ventures can be complex but we have the creative vision to structure your JV to ensure it builds in flexibility to respond to the shifting market or changes in your strategy.
We see your JV through from inception to completion, outlining where the risks lie at each stage before you commit to the next phase.
We troubleshoot and anticipate issues by creating structures that build in flexibility over time and help you respond to changes and challenges along the way
Pre-letting and Leasing
Our uninterrupted vision of shifting supply, global demand and rent levels in our chosen markets mean we spot trends early, so you deliver what the market wants, at the right time.
Sharing in development risk with a funding partner can make good sense but finding a UK or international investor with compatible objectives is crucial.
Strategic planning advice
Securing planning permission is critical in securing an uplift in the value of your land but long before submitting an application, you may need advice on the best strategy to employ.
Site and option analysis
It is only after your site’s opportunities and constraints have been fully uncovered can you decide the best way of unlocking its full potential.
Piecing together land to create large-scale plans often pays off with a smoother path to planning permission and higher returns.
Development appraisal and financial modelling
Funding development and generating returns is a long-term undertaking. It takes time for money to start coming in, so it pays to be clear on your development cash flow and likely returns at the outset.
Assembling and managing key consultants
Any development will require a wide-ranging cast of experts to realise a vision; the key is modelling the appointment of these experts to best manage project cash flow.
Gaining planning consent
Getting your planning application approved is more than just box ticking. Securing planning consent means persuading the doubters and managing conflict along the way.
Budget and cost management
Designing a scheme that will be viable, valuable, and to institutional standards is only possible with the right development budget in place that will bring you return on investment.
Our project managers work closely with our commercial team to formulate a viability statement, giving you expectations on affordability, deliverability and potential yield before embarking on the complex construction stage.
We use our in-depth market knowledge to provide asset valuation advice on your investment before, during and after your acquisition or disposal.
