The Built Environment is more complex now than it ever has been.

Technological innovation means people demand more functionality and convenience from the buildings and infrastructure that they occupy and interact with.

We work with clients to develop, fund, acquire, dispose of, lease and manage assets in the built environment. We advise on property and real estate, construction, civil engineering, transport, energy, and manufacturing infrastructure.

Growing populations present opportunities and challenges in balancing resource consumption, such as land and energy usage.

Changing behaviours, the emerging work from home culture, and the growth of online retail were already creating disruptive change, which has only been accelerated by Covid-19.

Modern methods of construction, and BuildTech, have changed the way we develop our buildings and infrastructure. Many of our team members also work in our specialist Technology Infrastructure team.

Our lawyers have worked with a diverse range of assets in the UK and abroad for private and public sector clients:

  • Mixed use city centre redevelopment projects
  • Office buildings
  • Residential developments
  • Hospitality and leisure, including hotel construction and refurbishment projects
  • Technology infrastructure such as data centres, fibre optics and telecoms infrastructure
  • Industrial buildings and plant, including renewable energy, oil and gas, logistics and warehousing
  • Healthcare facilities, hospitals and pharmaceutical laboratories
  • Transport infrastructure
  • Sports venues
