Master Planning to Unlock Development Value
Science and technology businesses thrive in collaborative clusters with strategic positioning to promote productivity and cross-fertilisation of ideas. Our master planners unlock value through the holistic design of placemaking in new developments.
A 50-year project to establish and evolve Europe’s first and most successful science park.
Giving physical form to your vision can refine your brief, ensure you attract the right tenant and create a place people want to come and work.
A science or innovation park needs to attract high-quality talent by creating a strong sense of place that supports a visionary brand and overarching objectives.
Without robust master planning, a park can swiftly become a disorganised jumble of buildings, misaligned with market demand. We’ll assess your scheme, its proposed tenants, surrounding infrastructure and movement flows around the site, and evaluate how each aspect interacts in three dimensions.
By visualising your brief in physical form, we’ll assess viability in terms of positioning, space and constraints, and build a picture of the scheme from feasibility to realisation. Working closely with our planning, building and commercial teams, the master plan is an invaluable cog in the mechanics of delivering a new scheme.
Our approach of working in conjunction with our expert professional teams gives us the best possible understanding of your brief and a commercial perspective to the design
