We have the capacity, expertise and scale you need to bring innovative concepts to life and at pace.
Our award-winning designs help to regenerate communities, providing sustainable homes which address issues of fuel poverty, health and wellbeing, the climate agenda and affordability.
Within our team, we have developers, architects, planning consultants, development consultants, surveyors, engineers and technical specialists working across every aspect of the development lifecycle.
ESTATES AND ASSET MANAGEMENT
A strategic approach to the management of property assets is now recognised as fundamental to the successful delivery of services by the public sector, operating within the context of increasing service demand and year-on-year cuts to funding.
We undertake a broad spectrum of activities to ensure that organisations are making the most effective use of assets, driving forward programmes of rationalisation and moving towards lean and environmentally sustainable estates.
We are highly experienced providers of technical and management consultancy services, particularly in the education sector. Our lead consultants include a core team who have had significant experience at a senior level within the schools organisation and capital planning teams of local authority children’s services departments.
Our support has included assistance with the development of required documentation and bids for funding, as well as programme and project development and management.
Our dedicated project managers have the skills to deliver complex projects with excellent results.
By understanding the client’s requirements and key values, we can provide completion within the agreed programme, adherence to the clients’ budget, zero defects at handover and a high level of quality.
Our regime of reporting and communication keeps clients fully appraised at all times, and our satisfaction surveys provide learning points for continual improvement.
We offer a service for structural and civil engineering design, both as a stand-alone capability and as part of larger integrated design schemes.
As structural design is part of our integrated suite of property services, we can be involved with architectural, mechanical and electrical designers from the earliest stages of a project. That means shorter, more predictable construction programmes and fewer compensation events for the principal contractor.
Our building surveyors deliver efficient maintenance planning and reactive building repair activities to ensure that your property portfolio complies with current and forthcoming legislation. Drawing upon our full range of in-house resources to manage building refurbishment projects to a high standard.
Our background gives us a unique understanding of the needs of public sector property asset owners. In addition to this, we also offer a full range of land surveying services, either as part of a wider package of asset management services or as individual stand-alone commissions.
