      Developing Science and Technology Assets

      Our front row view of UK research and development over five decades means that creativity and innovation flourishes in the spaces we help fund and develop.

      Our energy and enthusiasm for science and technology will help attract the fast-moving world of science to your next development project

      From spinouts with two employees to FTSE 100 corporations with 2,000, we deeply understand the requirements of globally important research and development tenants and know how to best create office and laboratory spaces to enable their science. 

      By working across the life cycle of property throughout the Oxford to Cambridge Arc and across the UK, we can quickly benchmark comparable projects in the sector, informing your financial model, planning aims and leasing strategy.

      We strive to create spaces that are valuable and attractive to the global market, ensuring your negotiations, refits and relocations go to plan; helping developers create and expand the innovation districts and research parks driving development in our markets.

      As the research develops, so does  real estate. The region’s most successful mixed-use developments, fuelled by the interaction between international business and academia, make sure they follow the science.
