The UK's planning policy framework is currently in a state of transition, making early and detailed discussions with both the local authority and local stakeholders ever more important.

As a property development company we work on a project from inception to completion. Through our network of contacts, we always source the best off market opportunities and either invest directly or work with our joint venture partners. Always working with the occupier in mind, we'll run the planning and construction management to deliver a scheme which is built, let and sold with enhanced returns.
Today's environmental agenda is pushing developers towards refurbishing existing stock rather than going for new ground-up development, and we're at the leading edge of this. We've proven that, for a lower build cost, a back-to-the-frame office refurbishment can equal, and even exceed, the rental value on a comparative new build, whilst maintaining car parking ratios. We see this area of development becoming more prevalent and believe it can provide enhanced returns whilst proving sustainable in its own right.
Our philosophy is centred on finding the right balance in the current difficult market to match the requirements of the occupational and funding markets. Therefore investment selection is key.
To support this we can provide Strategic Advice, Financial Analysis, Market Intelligence and Asset Planning to cover the following areas:
leasing strategy/regearing exit strategy and implementation property development property marketing
refurbishment/estate works planning overview joint venture initiatives master planning service marriage value negotiations building design co-ordination of professional team rent reviews
Our sites vary from greenfield sites being promoted through the local planning process to up and let investments requiring the full spectrum of services above.
