The Package + Method: Six steps to successful delivery
Securing genuine control of a site, we will only ever present an opportunity we know we can exclusively deliver to you. When we bring a site to you, we really do have either legal or commercial control.
We ensure a site can be delivered in planning policy terms according to the allocation to which you are committed. We will test new opportunities for planning policy and development management compliance before we present to you.
3. Site Investigation
Before we go ahead with a site, we will fully understand risks below ground and devise strategies to mitigate and cost manage. Our objective is always to eliminate unknowns and to deliver time and cost certainty.
4. Design Compliance
We have a clear understanding of scheme design compliance and the creation of places. Where a site is HCA grant funded, we will only ever propose a scheme that fully takes account of the HCA’s design quality expectations in a post Design & Quality Standards operating environment.
Our aim is always to offer you market-led design schemes. In our drive to assist sales, we work intensively with local authorities to bring forward the most up-to-date designs.
We understand your capital grant and revenue constraints, and how marginal scheme viability becomes in grant-funded schemes during the time from HCA allocation to SOS.
We challenge entrenched cost estimating practices to achieve real cost efficiencies. This is not value engineering; it is genuine cost innovation. This, alongside sound site diligence, enables us to pass cost efficiencies on to you, the client. This approach is also designed to assist returns on open market and shared equity schemes.
We understand the importance of accurate and realistic scheme forecasting; we know what Start on Site and Practical Completion means to you. We also implement rigorous project programming techniques throughout. This enables you to report sound and transparent scheme milestone forecasting for the comprehensive range of development types we offer.
We look after production control from pre-commencement conditions through to handover and post completion Section Agreements. Our programming exists specifically to safeguard your forecasting and mortgage loan position.
