Infrastructure

Helping shape the future of our nation

Infrastructure is a vital platform on which economic prosperity, social benefit and environmental sustainability depend. The interrelationship between infrastructure, land and property is clear, often underpins project business cases and is a key element of many of the UKs most prominent schemes.

We combine market-leading real estate expertise with deep infrastructure knowledge and proprietary technology to deliver integrated consulting and transactional solutions to real asset sector clients. Gaining insight from our own investment management business (which takes equity stakes in real assets), as well as drawing on our strategic partnership with Turner & Townsend, our uniquely powerful blend helps our clients achieve outcomes that maximise impact, commercial and social value, and long-term sustainability.

We act at all stages of the asset lifecycle, from strategic inception, to implementation, operation and exit.  Working as an integrated team across our service lines and geographies, we provide our clients with joined-up, superior advice and market insight, focused always on their strategic objectives and desired outcomes.

East West Rail

-Strategic advice to maximise value from infrastructure schemes
-Multibillion rail scheme connecting Oxford to Cambridge via Milton Keynes.  
-Purpose of the scheme is to unlock large-scale housing growth and associated regional development.

We advised East West Rail Limited on Station Identity & Purpose. This included advising on the optimal location for new stations to maximise the effect on housing growth and development and analysing station purpose; utilising our proprietary digital analytic tool, as well as drawing on our placemaking expertise, to categorise stations and develop individual station personas across the route whilst maintaining end-to-end consistency with EWR’s brand. 

This all supported EWR’s focus on customer-centricity, influencing the design and development of stations that enhance the customer experience.  In addition, we advised on commercial value maximisation opportunities, ranging from on-station to over-site development.

Airport City Manchester 

design-furniture-advisory-chemours-thumb Key details  
– Multi-disciplinary advice in relation to the ongoing development of Airport City Manchester, the global gateway to and from the Northern Powerhouse.
- Detailed research to position the airport development scheme in an international context.
- Instructed to secure a joint venture partner, involving an international search for potential partners.

The comprehensive financial model created by CBRE became a crucial part of the procurement strategy and evaluation process.  The perception of the location, a lack of existing pre-lets / demonstrable market demand, challenging market conditions and significant infrastructure costs were significant challenges which needed to be overcome.  The success of Airport City and BCEGI’s involvement played an integral role in delivering direct flights from Manchester to Beijing (Shanghai has since followed).
