Property development is a multifaceted business area. We work with developers, landowners, operators and builders on projects ranging from large housing developments to commercial industrial, retail, sports, waste, minerals, energy, healthcare, nuclear and port development. Our involvement in property development spans across the vast majority of our business from strategic planning, master planning and planning application to environmental impact assessment, ecology, archaeology, traffic, site investigation, ground engineering, land reclamation, infrastructure design and foundation design and much more besides. We can add the most value when we are involved early on helping to shape developments. The right upfront work in investigation, design and forward planning can pay for itself many times over by enhancing the value of development and minimising liabilities. Our specialists are ready with professional guidance at every stage from initial concept through to completion.
