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.
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.
Pre-letting and Leasing
Our uninterrupted vision of shifting supply, global demand and rent levels in our chosen markets mean we spot trends early, so you deliver what the market wants, at the right time.
Sharing in development risk with a funding partner can make good sense but finding a UK or international investor with compatible objectives is crucial.
Joint venture and partnering
If you don't wish to go it alone, we can set up innovative joint venture arrangements that build in flexibility and help share development risk.
Strategic planning advice
Securing planning permission is critical in securing an uplift in the value of your land but long before submitting an application, you may need advice on the best strategy to employ.
Site and option analysis
It is only after your site’s opportunities and constraints have been fully uncovered can you decide the best way of unlocking its full potential.
Piecing together land to create large-scale plans often pays off with a smoother path to planning permission and higher returns.
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
Getting your planning application approved is more than just box ticking. Securing planning consent means persuading the doubters and managing conflict along the way.
Budget and cost management
Designing a scheme that will be viable, valuable, and to institutional standards is only possible with the right development budget in place that will bring you return on investment.
Our project managers work closely with our commercial team to formulate a viability statement, giving you expectations on affordability, deliverability and potential yield before embarking on the complex construction stage.
We use our in-depth market knowledge to provide asset valuation advice on your investment before, during and after your acquisition or disposal.
Renewables for Developers
Developing energy and renewables projects can be complex and time-consuming. Our experts are working across the UK with landowners and developers to bring them to fruition.
Biodiversity Net Gain in Development
Having a credible biodiversity plan for your scheme is becoming integral to securing planning permission and maximising end values.
