The business has grown from strength to strength since being established in 2008. Over the last year the team have worked on a number of diverse projects including, preparing a demand study for life sciences real estate in London for MedCity; advising on the £95 million (approx.) acquisition of the BEST Network (Business Environments for Science and Technology Network) of five science parks – the largest privately owned network of science and technology parks in the UK; completing the sale of land at Cambridge Biomedical Campus to AstraZeneca and advising Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust on the selection of a development partner for the Oxford Road hospital campus.
Jonathan Burroughs, CEO of Creative Places, commented: “We are really delighted to have been picked as finalists competing to win this important national award. The fact we have been shortlisted for the award is recognition of all that the Creative Places team have achieved in the last few years and of the fantastic client base we have been fortunate to work with over that time.”
