Knight Frank

55 Baker Street



The UK Life Sciences and Innovation sector is on a fast-growth trajectory and is now central to the UK’s economic growth throughout the 2020s. As the sector develops, so too will the real estate landscape that supports it.

Knight Frank has a UK network of offices aligned with the Life Sciences sector, operating across the key Life Sciences and Innovation markets of London, Oxford, Cambridge and the Golden Triangle, as well as other key regional markets where innovation and research eco-systems thrive, such as Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

Whatever your requirements, the Knight Frank team of market experts, supported by their in-depth research capabilities, can help meet your real estate demands. A range of services are available, under the branches of:

  • Leasing
  • Capital Markets
  • Tenant Representation & Strategic Consultancy
  • Valuation & Advisory
  • Project Building Consultancy
  • Data Centres
  • Development advisory
  • Sustainability

In 2020, the UK Life Sciences sector witnessed a 45% year-on-year increase in the number of companies incorporated in the UK, and between 2021 to 2022, the UK Government plans to invest £14.6bn in R&D grants and facilities.

Public and private investment are expected to accelerate as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic. But this is only part of the picture. Technology and data, open innovation, next wave manufacturing, ESG and emerging fields of science are also transforming the market.

Not only are these forces shaping the sector, but they will have significant implications for landlords, investors, developers and occupiers. Knight Frank can be consulted to provide advice to each of these client groups and have a strategic relationship with specialist advisors if the service required is sector specific.
