Repositioning UK Office Assets—Risks and Opportunities: Best-in-Class vs. Out-of-Date

Over recent years, we have seen an office sector where occupiers are taking less space and using it in a different way in the United Kingdom, even when compared to five years ago.

This White Paper explores the real estate, planning and construction risks and opportunities presented by those market dynamics and provides guidance on areas to be considered by investors and developers seeking to take advantage.
