TFT is an independent real estate and construction consultancy with integrated decarbonisation services. We have been creating more valuable and resilient commercial buildings for 50 years.

Our team comprises over 150 specialist advisors based in the UK & Ireland, working across Europe. We help building owners, investors, and occupiers to maximise the commercial performance and sustainability of their buildings, including the reduction of embodied and emitted carbon. We do this with technical advice and commercial understanding, supporting building development, transactions, leasing, maintenance, refurbishment and retrofit cycles.

TFT’s life-long independence shapes our ethos: we put the performance of buildings and the wellbeing of people at the heart of our work. We aren’t accountable to other interests beyond our clients, our communities and our environment. As a certified B Corporation, we are committed to continuously improving and making better impacts to those stakeholders.

We value originality, diversity, and confidence in our team, backed up by a collaborative culture for sharing knowledge and supporting one another. We believe this empowers everybody to play their part in delivering high-performing buildings.

With tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities clear to see, TFT provides our clients with a passionate, collaborative team who bring the skills and technical insight to meet them.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the support and input over the last few quarters. TFT has helped to improve our technical due diligence process greatly, and increased Sonder's protection on deals, and outlined risk decisions clearly, enabling us to make decisions. It has also been a pleasure working with you and your team, on some fast-paced deals, all of which seemed to have quite a difference to any others.

Lee Clary, Development Manager, Sonder

TFT was a pleasure to work with throughout the Cathedral Square office refurbishment, which has proven to be a great success landing two strong tenants shortly after practice completion. TFT consistently delivered throughout, setting a good example for the rest of the delivery team. I look forward to working on the next project together soon.

Anthony Maxwell-Jones, Castleforge Partners

TFT undertook the role of project monitor at the Edinburgh St James development; we have been impressed with their level of detail and diligence in this demanding role.

Stephen Wicks, Head of UK & Nordics Retail, Nuveen Real Estate

TFT has assisted Screwfix with our expansion plans in Scotland and the rest of the UK. The TFT Edinburgh team have undertaken technical due diligence and new-build development monitoring upon all of our Scottish sites. They operate under tight timescales and provide coherent and detailed advice that allows Screwfix to minimise risk and transact in a timely manner.

Paul Embleton, Acquisitions Manager, Screwfix

I would like to thank you and your team for the tremendous contribution and hard work you are putting in this project. In my opinion, it goes beyond any professional commitment. So, thanks again for your effort, flexibility and understanding.

I completely recommend TFT’s approach to managing dilapidations. I have been really impressed with the way the team fought our corner and achieved a great result for us. Having used other firms in the past, I see how TFT sets itself apart and I look forward to working with them again.
