Alternative sectors is a phrase that is used to describe asset classes that do not fit within the traditional asset types such as industrial and offices.

The alternative sector is becoming more established and increasingly more important within the commercial property landscape, providing considerable opportunities for investors.

Our commercial property specialists are well placed to provide advice across all alternative sectors and our expertise covers the following:

  • Private rented sector (PRS)
  • Self-storage
  • Renewables
  • Higher education
  • Data centres
  • Roadside
  • Day nurseries
  • Garden centres
We can provide a full range of advice and services across all these sectors as detailed below.
