      Bidwells has released its Spring 2020 Cambridgeshire offices and laboratories research, which shows a strong year for the city, with take-up well ahead of ten year average at 0.8m sq ft - the highest total since the record highs recorded in 2014/15

      Despite Brexit uncertainty, the Cambridge market proved robust throughout 2019, and saw an increased focus on Grade A space.

       Key facts:

      • Take-up well ahead of ten year average

      • Almost three quarters of let office and lab space was grade A, as occupiers focus on quality

      • Knowledge intensive businesses accounted for majority of 2019 take-up

      • Office rents in Cambridge offices & labs sector at historic high 

      • Large floorplate requirements account for a third of demand

       
      Max Bryan, Head of Laboratory and Office Agency at Bidwells said:

      “The first half of the year was relatively strong but quickened after the summer with occupiers focussing on securing their long-term place in Cambridge’s world class science and tech cluster rather than dwelling on the wider economic outlook”
