Councils

Property Partners for Local Authorities

We have particular expertise providing surveying and property services to councils and other government agencies and are retained by many leading local authorities.

We provide support for Councils looking to buy, let, lease, develop or dispose of property assets. We can also provide integrated solutions for Council property that needs to be monitored, managed, refurbished or improved.

We add value every step of the way – whether it’s using our negotiating skills to get the best possible deal, or looking for opportunities to maximise the value of assets through strategic management or enhancements.

Everything we do is designed to add value to your organisation and help you streamline your operations. We’ll work closely with you to provide a bespoke solution to your specific needs. Our comprehensive range of services includes:

Building Surveying and Valuations

We provide full surveying and valuation services for land, property and businesses. We also provide rent review services and can deliver lease renewals and re-gears.

Buying and Selling

We are experts at helping Councils purchase and sell property. We can also provide strategic and financial advice, helping our public sector clients to build dynamic and profitable property portfolios.

Investment

We identify development and investment opportunities for Councils. We also provide detailed appraisals of viable development options and advice on funding strategies and marketing.

Property Management

We can provide a comprehensive range of property management services for Council property. We take care of the fundamentals, minimise costs and help boost the value of built assets through strategic repairs and refurbishment.

Construction

We provide a full range of architectural and construction management services, including construction monitoring, cost analysis and space planning.

Helping Councils maximise the value of their property assets

We work on some of the most high-profile council property projects and offer a level of specialist expertise and experience that most other property consultancies lack.

Our advice is well-researched and realistic and we are skilled at working with all the key players in the sector, including staff, tenants, landlords, solicitors and key public sector bodies.

We know how complex negotiations in this sector can be and offer a sector-specific understanding of marketing, accounting principles and licensing regulations.

We draw on the expertise of all our departments to provide a wide range of in-house expertise that augments our principle services. We also have well-developed links with a wide range of contractors, so we can act as a one-stop shop to make life easy for our clients.

Our corporate resources allow us to work as long-term partners with our clients and help them to achieve their organisational goals. Our network of local offices means we can provide a fast, responsive service and a deep understanding of local markets and planning issues.
