Offices and Industrial Development

Our Offices and Industrial development team brings together Cushman & Wakefield's collective expertise to support developers, funders, landowners, investors and the public sector, in the sale, funding, repositioning and enhancement of industrial and office space.

Industrial and office space comes in many shapes and guises, from logistics and manufacturing units to business parks and city centre offices. To deliver exceptional outcomes across assets types, we draw upon the knowledge and skills of our agency, investment, planning, project management, cost management and debt financing teams and work with best-in-class external consultants. We are well versed at assembling and successfully leading multi-disciplinary teams to deliver projects. As part of a leading global property consultancy, we also provide our clients with access to the extensive data and research that underpins our advice.
