      50+ year relationship

      Acting as both property advisor and consultant, our multi-faceted work for Emmanuel has led to a financially sound and high returning investment. Emmanuel need quality, value for money and long-term impact – we’ve been on hand from inception to ensure we deliver on their vision.

      Constructing 24 new student and fellow rooms in the heart of one of Cambridge’s oldest colleges was no mean feat. Completed within budget and before a new academic year, South Court extension was provided with larger rooms and low running costs - attracting the brightest students and fellows.

      In 2018, Janus House was an under-performing commercial asset – it is now Grade A office space. Completing works above live retail units meant Emmanuel needed a consultant that could work quickly without compromising on quality.

      Our multi-disciplinary team offers an all-encompassing service to Emmanuel.

      St Andrew's House

      On St Andrew’s House, the college owned the freehold; a mix of retail and office space. When the opportunity arose to purchase the long leasehold, we were instructed to act. With a block multi-let to 21 tenants at a gross interest of £1.633m a year, we knew the project had to be efficient, so actively marketed the vacant 49,000 sq ft office space.

      We worked collaboratively to ensure the advice we provided was second-to-none and supports the optimisation of their student accommodation, commercial offices and retail space. We continuously endeavour to come up with solutions that are both innovative and cost effective.
