Fully maximising your development returns and accurately modelling your cash flow requires bags of experience. Getting the correct numbers out means putting the right information in.
We can adjust your financial model to assess a project’s viability and show clearly when returns will be realised, drawing on all our development expertise and market knowledge.
We maximise value by advising on the best mix of uses to optimise your returns, plugging in the numbers – revenues, rents, yields, build costs, professional fees, finance, profit margins and purchase costs - to help shape your proposal and strategy.
If the site is burdened with high infrastructure costs, then the scheme's viability may need careful modelling to get it off the ground. We will assess its financial viability, so you can decide what you can pay for the land.
We want to ensure you receive a competitive return on your investment by accurately looking at how your development project will work in practice. It will help inform your bid, decide which scheme to pursue or assess how and when to best market your product.
Whether it’s a focused financial appraisal, a bespoke financial model or you need us to help you report to your board, we’ll take care of it for you.
Finding opportunities before other buyers is where development value lies. After more than 180 years in our markets, we know how and where to access the opportunities most worth pursuing.
Site and option analysis
Your site has prospects, but only after its opportunities and constraints have been uncovered can you spot potential problems and turn them to your advantage.
Strategic planning advice
Creative planning advice at an early stage of the development process helps you spot value where others may not see it, opening opportunities and creating value.
We structure and agree creative development funding deals, sourced within our long-established global investor networks, helping you offset risk and maximise your profitability.
Pre-letting and leasing
By leveraging our on-the-pulse market insight into what national and international occupiers need from their space and business locations, you can align your proposals to fund and develop with confidence.
Affordable housing and viability
The scheme looks fantastic and ticks all the boxes, but can someone deliver it? Fully understanding the viability of your scheme from an early stage ensures it will be.
Biodiversity net gain
When the property sector was still grappling with mitigating environmental harm in development, we were busy pioneering a start-to-finish biodiversity net gain solution.
Big is beautiful. By joining forces with neighbouring landowners or buying more land you can be more ambitious with your proposals, generating higher returns than you might going it alone.
Phasing and disposal
You need to know when the money will start coming in and how quickly. Our local understanding gauges the market’s likely absorption rate and builds a phasing strategy to suit.
Our project managers provide detailed benchmarking data from a broad portfolio of completed projects, allowing developers to make informed decisions.
