We can help you deliver individual schemes in a variety of ways:
Site identification and initial appraisal against your brief in order to bring you the opportunities that you seek.
Scheme planning, management & delivery (interim cover or as appointed project manager)
Acting as a scheme’s project manager either:
- from inception through to completion or
- providing cover during staff vacancy or
- expert advice on specific aspects of, or phases of, more complex projects
S106 / CIL negotiations
We can assist affordable housing providers or private housebuilders understand the complex issues behind these negotiations that can significantly delay projects.
Development Agency Services for small HAs, ALMOs, LAs
We provide a full Development Agency service for affordable housing providers. Many “smalls” are concerned that larger registered providers may focus primarily on their own schemes when acting as Development Agent. We do not run a programme of our own schemes, and so we can promise that our professional project management service is focused entirely on your projects.
We strongly recommend planning how to manage project risks from Inception stage, not just from detailed planning permission or start on site. We can also help you develop risk plans that are meaningful and do not constitute death-by-spreadsheet. effective risk management is such an important element of professional project management, we try to include as much coaching of your staff as possible in our work.
“Achieving Building for Life” assessments
As the authors of the Housing Corporation publication Achieving Building for Life, we are particularly well placed to undertake assessments of newbuild schemes.
