Maximising your development returns in the science and technology space takes highly specialist knowledge. Building laboratories and growing science clusters is about more than developing commercial property.
With over £2bn of UK research facilities, Harwell has an international reputation for scientific discovery and innovation
We can accurately model your cash flow because we’ve been overseeing construction in this sector for decades. Getting the correct numbers out means putting the right information in.
We’ll adjust your financial model to assess a project’s viability and show clearly when returns will be realised, drawing on all our development expertise and market knowledge.
We maximise value by advising on the best way to optimise your returns, plugging in the numbers – revenues, rents, yields, build costs, professional fees, finance, profit margins and purchase costs - to help shape your proposal and strategy.
If a site is burdened with high infrastructure costs, then the scheme's viability may need careful modelling to get it off the ground. We will assess its financial viability so you can decide what you can pay for the land.
Whether it’s a focussed financial appraisal, a bespoke financial model or you need us to help you report to your board, we’ll take care of it for you
