One of the most rewarding things for a business like ours is developing long-term relationships of trust with the best clients. It's great then, to have been appointed again by British Land PLC.

We'll be advising on minimum energy standards for its assets in Scotland whilst also helping to establish refreshed requirements for the energy performance assessment services that it procures.

Believe it or not, we reach the end of our first year of business today! It's been an extraordinary ride and there's not been a single moment in which we've looked back and questioned why we launched Hillbreak.

We've been fortunate to work with some of the best clients the real estate market has to offer, and on an array of truly fantastic engagements too - from global responsible investment strategies to the cultural envisioning of regeneration schemes; from coaching a new wave of graduate talent into the profession to helping international Boards understand and respond to the impacts of a changing world.

We could't have done any of it without them, nor the friends, family and partners that have supported us along the way, and we thank all of you for your trust, loyalty, faith and encouragement.

We'll be analysing the impact we've had in our first year and look forward to sharing this with you soon. In the meantime, we're stepping into our second year of business with confidence high, ambition unbounded and a really exciting pipeline of projects and opportunities.

#thankyou

Jon & Miles
