Design and Research Consultancy

CBRE UK Development is the only team of its kind to have an embedded research and design consultancy that specialises in investment and development in the UK Build to Rent market. From dedicated research to design and financial modelling expertise, the team draws on a broad range of knowledge and experience to empower clients to make fully-informed investment decisions and take full advantage of opportunities in this exciting and rapidly emerging sector.

Through an iterative process between researchers, architects and financial modellers the team offers in-depth analysis on local supply and demand dynamics, such as advising on who will live at a potential development, what they will pay, how many renters can afford this, what these renters can expect in terms of the attributes of the building and how the proposition sits within the local market context to determine the optimum market-ready scheme to maximise returns.
