We selected Churchmanor who, through their creative master planning and development skills, have achieved a quality business park of which the Council is proud. Our partners innovative thinking and flexible approach have helped us fulfil our ambitions. The joint venture is a working model illustrating how a successful partnership between private and public sectors can be forged.

Councillor David Finch, Essex County Council Leader

Churchmanor have been an intrinsic part of bringing the vision for Chesterford Research Park to reality. Their development expertise and collaborative approach have enabled us to create a Park that is of an exceptional standard, ideal for start-ups and growing biotechs alike, whilst retaining the superb natural environment that is so much a part of what we are. On a day to day basis Churchmanor manage and co-ordinate our contractors across both new build and refurbishment works, always mindful to minimise disruption to Park occupiers in the process. It has been a great pleasure to partner with them on this development and we value their continued input and expertise as we continue to grow.

Katherine Maguire, Park Manager

Churchmanor has been a major player in helping to rejuvenate Huntingdon town centre. Having been met with many challenges their persistence and tenacity in delivering Chequers Shopping Centre has resulted in an exciting new shopping experience. We have been very impressed by their ‘can do’ attitude and enthusiasm, which has helped to improve the trading environment leading to an increase in footfall, essential for a thriving Market Town

Peterhouse now enjoys a growing stream of income from its geared ground lease investment in the park. With skill and tenacity, Churchmanor has created a landmark development that at one time had appeared a lost opportunity for the College. The College has been delighted with the results and the trust we placed in Churchmanor through our joint venture has been rewarded.

Richard Grigson, The Bursar, Peterhouse

Not only have Churchmanor assisted us in revitalising a redundant asset, they have provided us with valuable long term investment income.

Over a period of many years now, the teams at LSI Architects and Churchmanor have worked together on a variety of successful masterplanning, commercial and retail projects. Key to the success of these projects has been the collaborative and enthusiastic approach of the people at Churchmanor; their commercial experience and expertise, and their ambition to deliver high quality, thoughtful development.

Handing over day to day control of a prized family asset was no easy decision. However, 10 years into the joint venture with Churchmanor, we have no regrets. Working with a company with such strong ethics, values and respect for their partners, meant that despite being in a 50:50 joint venture, we never had any relationship issues and more importantly no concerns. Would we enter into a relationship with Churchmanor Estates  again? Most certainly. They are not only expert in their field but most importantly they know how to involve their stakeholders in the joint journey to ensure goal congruence at all times.
