The Colliers International Public Sector team delivers a full range of services to all parts of the public sector including central and local government, further and higher education, health and the emergency services. We understand the increasing pressure on public bodies to use property in the most efficient way - by reducing costs, disposing of surplus assets and increasing returns on investment - and our established track record shows how successful we are in helping to achieve this.
