      Development Management

      You can create significant value from land or property by funding development and taking on risk, leaving you more in control of your legacy and with a bigger share of the upside.

      Cambridge Science Park

      A 50-year project to establish and evolve Europe’s first and most successful science park

      We’ll mitigate risks, maximise returns and chart an irreversible course. Sitting between you and the development team, we’ll drive things forward, coordinate and inform the big decisions.

      We’ll take responsibility and bring together a team of specialist consultants to achieve the optimum result, making sure we are on top of the design quality, hitting sustainability standards and delivering profits.

      We will take care of the financial modelling and capital budgeting of your scheme, while managing the construction risk to give you peace of mind from start to finish, safe in the knowledge that you are in control of the legacy-leaving decisions.

      By instructing a development manager you will deliver significant value for your property - value that would not have been achieved through a sale or refurbishment. 

      Our clients’ land and end of life property assets are regularly transformed by steering new offices, labs, retail space and large-scale towns through the development process from start to finish.

      Development appraisal and financial modelling

      Funding development and generating returns is a long-term undertaking. It takes time for money to start coming in, so it pays to be clear on your development cash flow and likely returns at the outset.

      Assembling and managing key consultants

      Any development will require a wide-ranging cast of experts to realise a vision; the key is modelling the appointment of these experts to best manage project cash flow.

      Gaining planning consent
