We most commonly work with higher education institutions and schools to:

  • Dispose of obsolete property and sites to generate income
  • Secure funding to upgrade facilities and plan for expansion


The most important advantage to our clients is the chance to bring our commercial view to their assets.

This can help them:

  • Spot opportunities for change of use.
  • Negotiate a good price for property or land disposals.
  • Secure investment from developers looking for opportunities such as student accommodation.
