Our team of over 40 planners, property valuation experts, building surveyors, investment advisers and development consultants, understands the full dynamics of residential property as an investment, and will work with you to make your residential projects happen.

Working with landowners, housebuilders, banks and other financial institutions, as well as residential investors, local authorities and private individuals across the UK, we deliver a range of residential schemes – from city centre mixed-use regeneration projects and smaller developments / single plots, to ‘super prime’ housing conversions and developments in central London.

We also have particular expertise in the delivery of senior living and extra care developments, student accommodation and build to rent schemes.

Our people, your partners

Working closely with you, we will bring together our collective expertise in strategic land, planning, development, project delivery and acquisition and disposal, to take your project from concept and viability, through planning, and on to completion.

We also provide independent third-party review of site viability, as well as acting as Expert Witness on deliverability and viability at planning appeal.

Residential development

Our team of property development experts understands the importance of identifying the potential value in your residential development site and will work with you to maximise the realisation of this with your objectives in mind.

We are experienced in advising on the development of residential and mixed-use schemes across the UK and work closely with landowners and property developers of all sizes, and their professional teams, to advise on the feasibility of residential developments, including how to achieve a successful outcome.

Our advice spans all property development and disposal options available for a site, where we deal with the complexities of multiple-party interests and site constraints on your behalf, to see your project from inception through to completion.

We will harness the collective experience and market intelligence of our expert team at every stage of the development life cycle – from financial analysis and feasibility, to valuation, building consultancy, planning and project management, through to letting or sale.
