Where we come from
Since starting life as a rural practice in Cambridgeshire in 1839, we’ve learnt a lot about realising value from land and property. Like many of our clients, we’ve always taken a long-term view of the world, while operating at the leading edge of innovation.
Today, we’re one of the UK’s leading property consultancies and many of our earliest clients are still with us – including some of the most pre-eminent colleges in Oxford and Cambridge, who are among the biggest landowners in the UK.
In 1970, we developed the world’s first science park with Cambridge’s Trinity College. Since then, we’ve had a front row view of UK research and development and today we advise on over 50% of all science park floorspace across the Arc.
In fact, much of our work now centres on the Oxford to Cambridge Arc, London and everywhere in between. This area of central and southern England is experiencing exceptional growth, driven by the flourishing science and technology sector.
