Specialist lawyers work on one of biggest property deals ever seen in the city

Temple Quarter campus

A team of lawyers from Osborne Clarke have worked on one of the biggest property deals the city has ever witnessed.

The team advised the University of Bristol as work begins on its new Temple Quarter Campus at a total investment of around £500 million.

Work will commence this month after the university signed contracts with construction company Sir Robert McAlpine.

The university is also working closely with Bristol City Council, the West of England Combined Authority, Network Rail and Homes England.

The Osborne Clarke team was led by partner Chris Wade and associate director Sarah McCool. Associate director Laura Thornton and partner Catherine Wolfenden advised on procurement matters.

Sarah said: “The University of Bristol is an integral part of the region and this world class campus will bring significant socio-economic benefits to the city as well as cementing the city’s and wider South West region’s position as a global innovation destination.

“It has been a pleasure to support the University as it signs the contracts and work gets underway.”

Osborne Clarke is an industry leader in the built environment providing a comprehensive lifecycle service and advising major real estate industry organisations, ranging from occupiers to property funds to developers and investors.
