      Creating a home for three of the world’s four trillion-dollar companies

      Our 360-degree vision of the international property markets across the Oxford to Cambridge Arc helps you devise a leasing strategy to suit your objectives and financial model

      This deep understanding of what fast-growing start-ups and global occupiers like Amazon, Samsung and Santander need from space,gives us an instinctive feeling for what works well in our region’s research clusters, train station city gateways and established edge of city science parks.  

      We will run accurate appraisals on all the options; providing a steer on rents, exit yields, the voids you need to build in, how to best structure and finance the deal and the right mix of uses to maximise values.  

      Your leasing strategy aims to seamlessly secure pre-lets on the best possible terms. Our agency team has pre-let every new office and laboratory scheme over 50,000 sq ft built in Cambridge during the last eight years and we work on 31 science parks across the Oxford to Cambridge Arc.

      Your leasing strategy aims to seamlessly secure pre-lets on the best possible terms. We will think literally and laterally about your opportunity to ensure your scheme hits the market in the best way possible

      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.
