Scottish Enterprise is a public sector body responsible for identifying and exploiting the opportunities for economic growth in Scotland. They provide support to Scottish companies to compete, help to build globally competitive sectors, work to attract new investment and create world-class business environments. For a number of years we have worked with Scottish Enterprise (SE) in furthering their work to support innovation in Scotland. We have provided advice on a number of their property projects – further details of which can be found by clicking on the links below.
In Aberdeen we advised SE on how to structure a Joint Venture with the private sector in order to attract new investment in their Aberdeen Science Parks. After a public tender process we worked with them to agree terms to work alongside Buccleuch Property. The JV is now working to improve buildings and undertake new development.
In Glasgow we have provided advice on their West of Scotland Science Park, looking at the potential demand for further floorspace and providing advice on what additional facilities ought to be provided. Our work has included discussions with the University of Glasgow who work with SE to promote the park.
In Edinburgh we have prepared a report on the potential market for Bio-manufacturing space at their BioCampus site, which lies close to world leading animal health institutions. We have also prepared a feasibility report on the next stage of development at Edinburgh BioQuarter, looking at both research and amenity floorspace and how the project interacts with the University and Hospital.
