Leading advisors at the forefront of the most dynamic markets
We’re a leading UK property consultancy, at the forefront of two of the most dynamic real estate markets in the UK: the Oxford-Cambridge Arc and the emerging field of Natural Capital.
Today, our 500-strong team manages over £5.2bn in property assets for national and international investors, and serves as a gateway to these highly attractive markets for science and technology corporations and investors across North America, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Europe.
The leading property consultancy in the Arc
We are firmly rooted in the Arc with our long-standing clients including many of the best-known colleges in Oxford and Cambridge. Today, we are the largest property consultancy in the Arc - a high-growth region of global significance that adds over £110bn to the economy each year and is expected to add £370bn by 2050.
We now advise on over half of all science and technology space in the Arc, across over thirty science and innovation districts. In the last three years alone, we have secured the largest market share of office and lab leasing deals in the region.
In 2020 our total investment activity across the Arc reached almost £2.4bn – a record for the region.
We also sell, on average, £1.1m of new homes every day in the Arc and we are currently selling land for 19,000 to 20,000 new homes. That’s more than the UK’s largest plc housebuilders build in a year.

At the forefront of the newly emerging natural capital markets
Both within and beyond the Arc, the principles of sustainability and natural capital are transforming the face of investment, government policy, and therefore how land is managed and developed. For decades, we have had a strong presence in the land and estates markets, expertise that now puts us at the forefront of this emerging field.

We manage, or advise on, over 1 million acres of the English and Scottish countryside and coastline and are the leading consultancy in the high-growth forestry, renewables and sustainable investment sectors. These are markets that will define the future as we tackle the climate challenge through nature-based solutions to offset and sequester carbon and deliver environmental net gain.
Unparalleled knowledge across our markets
We like to think we are a bit different from other property consultants.
We don’t claim to do everything for everyone. But we do offer our clients an unparalleled knowledge and access to the markets we serve – and these are some of the most interesting markets with the highest growth potential in the UK.
