Your Estate

In today’s competitive environment universities and colleges must increasingly find innovative and ground-breaking initiatives to attract both students and premier collaborative partners.

Enhancing their estates is often identified as a major part of this drive to improve the student experience and attract partners. However, estates teams are often conflicted by the need to develop their estate whilst on a tight budget and, as a result, require commercial and reactive support to ensure that their interests are adequately protected and, as far as possible, ensure transactions proceed as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.
