Our Infrastructure and Real Estate experts deliver a wide range of market-leading specialist services to infrastructure clients.
CBRE Global Investors invests directly in Infrastructure assets and manages a large asset portfolio. Click on the service areas below to find out more about our capabilities in each area. And this is where the CBRE difference applies: we do not offer our advice in isolated pockets of technical expertise that clients then need to stitch together and decipher; we operate as an integrated team to provide our clients with joined-up advice, focused always on their overall objectives.
CBRE’s Capital Advisors team provides independent and industry-leading capital markets advice, backed by our unrivalled financial expertise and global real asset insight.
We work closely with clients who are looking for the focus, discipline and reach of a global corporate finance firm, combined with the real asset sector knowledge of the world’s leading commercial property company.
Our experts comprise experienced financing professionals who match client needs with investment strategies across specialist sectors and geographies, using a variety of capital structures.
The EMEA team works seamlessly with the CBRE network globally to provide clients with best-in-class advice and execution.
Understanding, navigating, and implementing a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) can be challenging to say the least. It’s a high risk, niche and complicated area of project delivery. It’s one of the reasons that many developers, solicitors, barristers and claimants turn to specialist consultants when making claims, or seeking to protect, their land.
CBRE has one of the largest and most respected teams of senior CPO advisors and consultants. We have comprehensive, broad property knowledge and unique insight from being part of one of the world’s biggest property companies and the niche understanding needed to give you best-in-class guidance on the compulsory purchase process. It’s why our clients come back to us time and time again.
The use of compulsory purchase powers is a necessity for delivering large infrastructure projects and whatever your goal, we can advise you every step of the way throughout the process – from initial advice through to implementation and claims.
Most compulsory purchase orders play out over the long-term, which can be frustrating for clients not used to dealing with the intricacies involved. But many of our clients have trusted us to handle CPO for decades. They like our strategic approach, our knowledge and our success rate in securing great outcomes for clients on both sides of the table.
If you’re implementing powers, we work to accelerate your project, assist in introducing certainty and mitigate the major cost risk of delay. If you’re affected by the use of compulsory purchase powers, we use our proven negotiation skills to make sure you’re protected.
Valuation is the critical foundation upon which operators, investors and developers base financial decisions. The complexity of Infrastructure assets demands accurate and consistent valuations based upon an extensive understanding of the underlying fundamentals that drive value, and the inherent risks associated with each asset class.
The Valuation team at CBRE is the largest and most experienced team in the UK and holds a market-leading position. We utilise our scale to benefit our clients through specialist teams and innovative technology. Our highly diverse team of professionals specialise in nearly all Infrastructure asset sectors including Renewables, Data Centres, and Transport. We have the knowledge and experience that enables us to understand your precise business and investment needs, providing the highest level of service to support you in making informed and strategic financial decisions.
We undertake valuations for accounts, performance measurement, acquisition and sales, securing project finance and lending purposes as well as statutory required valuations for owners, investors, and operators. We leverage our industry expertise, proven processes, and premier technologies to deliver exceptional industry-leading valuation reports and analysis.
This makes us confident you will receive a world-class service as well as innovative solutions and ideas, enabling your business to grow.
CBRE Strategic Advisory helps clients to develop successful strategies and implement programmes that unlock business value and achieve sustainability through their infrastructure and real estate assets.

Our clients encompass both public and private sectors, including Central, Regional and Local Government, Agencies, Government-owned entities, as well as private Investors, Developers, Owners, Occupiers and Operators across the infrastructure sector.
