Knight Frank Development Project Prize 2013

The winners with Adrian Wilson from Knight Frank (l to r: Chris Green, Nick Moore, Adrian Wilson, William Oliver)

Once again, OBREMS (our alumni society), with the support of Knight Frank, have rewarded the efforts of three third year undergraduate students on the BSc Real Estate Management. The prizes (cash prizes...just in time for Christmas) were based on performance in their Development Project.

The winning students were:

1st prize (£250 + internship at Knight Frank): Nick Moore
2nd prize (£175): Chris Green
3rd prize (£75): William Oliver


This year, the Development Project was a feasibility study of three logistics units at Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT). This site is being used as a case study for all final year modules (take a look at the recent blog post on DIRFT here). The students were required to undertake a market analysis of the scheme and determine the land value and potential funding options of the site using current market parameters. Their recommendations were contained in a full report of thescheme.

The winning team produced a joint report and then each gave a short presentation to the awarding committee. The committee was Adrian Wilson (Head of Development, Knight Frank), Rebecca Gee (BSc REM Programme Lead, Oxford Brookes) and Nick French (Professor in Real Estate, Oxford Brookes).
