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.

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.
