Development Funding and Joint Ventures
Our unique understanding of the nuts and bolts of developing property assets for the science and technology sector means we can find and select the right partner to help turn your vision into a reality.
We bring landowners, specialist developers and contractors together with global investors who understand what makes this exploding sector different from everyday commercial property
Our track record of agreeing creative development funding deals together with our deep knowledge of our geographical markets mean we select only the right investors for your scheme, helping you offset risk and maximise profitability.
Our unique network of colleges, funds, global investors and developers help us find and match parties with compatible aims, setting up speculative development funding, classic 50/50 JVs or something more creative.
The combined development expertise of our firm allows us to fully understand your project before only selecting and approaching UK and international investors with the right level of appetite for your development risk.
In a world where no two laboratories or city locations are the same, you need an investment partner who understands the risks and massive potential as well as you do.

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.
