We understand that undertaking a property development project when you are new at it can be a demanding and stressful experience. If you are not a full time developer your other commitments can also get in the way and delay your project and cost you time and money. Even if you are an experienced developer when you increase the number, complexity and or size of projects that you are undertaking you can be unsure in some circumstances or overrun by tasks. The last thing that you want is for a mistake to be made because you have too much on. We give you the opportunity to utilise the full range of development project management services, or opt for a more hand on role with a property development advisor to guide you through your project.  A fixed fee is charged for this type of service.

We can assist you by providing comprehensive and integrated development management services, managing the whole project considering all of the risks and opportunities to maximise profitability.

We can provide independent and expert advice across every part of the development project from start to finish.

Every stage of the development project will be carefully managed to mitigate potential risk and capitalise on opportunities beginning with the feasibility study right through to the final sales or leases and the closing out the project.

We have a number of different fee structures to suit the individual developer and the complexity of the project. This can include a monthly retainer scaled to the complexity of the project and experience of the developer or a performance based on the completion of each development stage. Meaning, that the fee is only charged on completion of each development stage.
