Twickenham Stadium will see improvements to its East Stand and benefit from a new sustainability strategy as part of a renewed partnership between the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and commercial real estate and investment firm CBRE.

The four-year agreement will see CBRE continue to provide property consultancy and advisory services, as well as significant upgrade and improvement works to Twickenham Stadium. These works include the replacement of the East Stand roof and the development of the RFU’s long-term sustainability and energy management strategy plus its facilities management services.

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with CBRE for another four years,” said Simon Massie-Taylor, the RFU’s chief commercial officer.

“We have built a strong partnership since we started working together in 2014 and we look forward to continuing to work with CBRE to ensure Twickenham Stadium continues to be a world-class venue for years to come.”

Ciaran Bird, CBRE’s chief executive UK & Ireland, added: “We are delighted to have extended our partnership with the RFU. We have a long-standing association with sport and champion the attributes it brings to the professional environment. We are looking forward to working with the RFU to help them deliver a more sustainable future.”

CBRE UK Planning & Development assisted Everton with the planning application for its new stadium which was unanimously approved by Liverpool City Council earlier this year.
