Our clients come to us for advice because we’ve been developing and managing science parks and city centre innovation districts in Cambridge, Oxford and Milton Keynes for more than half a century.
This insight into what drives the knowledge economy, and how the built environment can support its growth, helps global entrants to this market develop the right blend of uses in the right places.
Our most recent work on pivotal city centre development projects in places like Cambridge, Oxford and Milton Keynes is helping to spread a new UK model for this type of innovation-led, mixed-use development.
This know-how in assembling the right mix of science and tech occupiers, and our ability to secure international funding from those looking to move into a fast-moving investment class, will help you enter this marketplace and deliver what it needs.
Changes in the way we live and work are accelerating. Cities will inevitably be at the forefront of change over the coming years and the built environment will increasingly see the physical and digital overlap.
With the innovation economy central to our post-Covid world, we’ll help you navigate these shifting sands and thrive by helping deliver the innovation districts and science parks of the future
