Biodiversity Net Gain
When the property sector was still grappling with mitigating environmental harm in development a decade ago, Bidwells was busy pioneering a start-to-finish net gain solution for a developer with a biodiversity deficit.
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.
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.
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.
Whether you’re looking to create an out-of-town science park or a city centre research hub, acquiring land or joining forces with neighbours provides an opportunity to think big.
