Independent property consultancy TFT has announced the opening of a new office in Cambridge as the firm continues to invest in key regional markets following the pandemic.

Peter Wyld, who joins from Carter Jonas, will be TFT’s regional lead in Cambridge with the opening of the office rounding off a very productive financial year which saw the firm grow by 10 per cent.

TFT’s strategy is to build on its many years of working in East Anglia with major clients including L&G, Aviva, Tesco and Screwfix to continue to consolidate and expand in what it sees as a key geographical area, using a hub and spoke model.

Beyond the Silicon Fen and Oxford-Cambridge arc, Suffolk and Norfolk’s commercial property sector is responding to a combination of pandemic and Brexit effects.

The growing demand for warehousing and logistics units to store goods from the region’s ports will be served by TFT’s specialist knowledge in developing, transacting and managing logistics and industrial assets with sustainability and long-term value in mind.

Alistair Allison, managing partner of TFT said: “As part of our commitment to provide industry-leading technical ability and local market insight, we’re thrilled to announce our offices in Leeds, Southampton, Dublin, and now in Cambridge. Each region presents unique opportunities for our clients, and our team has a wealth of experience to offer across the board.

“We’ve already built a solid reputation in East Anglia through our delivery of surveying, project management, sustainability, and engineering services for new and existing clients. Expanding in the region supports our wider interests in non-core office locations which provide more places for our team, our clients and industry partners to work together.”

Peter Wyld, TFT’s Cambridge office lead, said: “East Anglia thrives on a mixture of sectors, from sciences and technology to leisure and retail. Cambridge and Norwich are longstanding favourite retail destinations and have demonstrated resilience.

“World-leading education institutions offer an excellent talent pool and technology incubation business models help turn start-ups into successful companies. It’s no surprise that we’re seeing strong inward investment and great optimism in the region.”

TFT’s new regional office demonstrates the firm’s investment in the region and is part of the firm’s sustained growth plan to continue expanding its network of workplaces for its teams across the country, providing more hubs for its team, clients and project partners to work together flexibly.
