Commercial property partner Charles Webb from Ashtons acted for the Muslim Academic Trust in the original purchase of the land and latterly for the Cambridge Mosque Trust who are the current owners.

Construction Associate Sarah Duncan assisted CMT Design and Build Limited in drafting the development agreement, building contract, warranties and appointments in order to bring the project to fruition and see the first phase of the development completed.

Sarah Duncan said: “We were delighted to work on such a prestigious and unique development which involved a wide cross section of professionals and disciplines. We are now looking forward to seeing the result of the project team’s hard work when the mosque opens in November”.
