Andrew works with developers to help turn proposals into reality, advising on viability and delivery of residential and mixed-use projects.

He enjoys the challenge of helping to turn something on a sheet of paper into a real project to be proud of. To Andrew, there is no better satisfaction than seeing a completed project with people living in it.

He prepares development appraisals and financial models to help his clients with site acquisition, land promotion or planning applications. Having worked on 'both sides of the fence' during his career, he has a unique understanding of the interaction between affordable housing and development viability. 

He is also an experienced negotiator, appearing at planning hearings and inquiries, and brokering deals between landowners, developers and local authorities to ensure that schemes happen.

For six years Andrew was a trustee of Empty Homes, a charity which promotes bringing empty residential properties back into meaningful use. Seeing homes being delivered and schemes being built is job satisfaction for him.  

Andy is MRICS accredited.
