Pre-letting and Leasing
By leveraging our on-the-pulse market insight into what national and international occupiers need from their space and business locations, you can align your proposals to fund and develop with confidence.
Our uninterrupted vision of shifting supply, global demand and local rents means we spot trends early to ensure you deliver what the international occupier market wants.
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 across 31 science parks across the Oxford to Cambridge Arc.
Our 360-degree vision of these property markets means we will think literally and laterally about your opportunity before devising a leasing strategy to suit your objectives and the market
Finding opportunities before other buyers is where development value lies. After more than 180 years in our markets, we know how and where to access the opportunities most worth pursuing.

Fully maximising your development returns and accurately modelling your cash flow requires bags of experience. Getting the correct numbers out means putting the right information in.
We structure and agree creative development funding deals, sourced within our long-established global investor networks, helping you offset risk and maximise your profitability.
Affordable housing and viability
The scheme looks fantastic and ticks all the boxes, but can someone deliver it? Fully understanding the viability of your scheme from an early stage ensures it will be.
Biodiversity net gain
When the property sector was still grappling with mitigating environmental harm in development, we were busy pioneering a start-to-finish biodiversity net gain solution.
Big is beautiful. By joining forces with neighbouring landowners or buying more land you can be more ambitious with your proposals, generating higher returns than you might going it alone.
Phasing and disposal
You need to know when the money will start coming in and how quickly. Our local understanding gauges the market’s likely absorption rate and builds a phasing strategy to suit.
Our project managers provide detailed benchmarking data from a broad portfolio of completed projects, allowing developers to make informed decisions.
