Land Appraisals & Pre-purchase advice

We offer comprehensive initial designs and feasibility studies that cover all aspects of site development and ROI (return on investment).

We recognise the need for accurate and cost effective appraisals for potential new land acquisitions. Our extensive experience of working for residential developers means that we look at each scheme from the developers’ viewpoint, this is built into all of our designs from the outset.

We recognise the potential for all development land and not just those areas already allocated for development. We work closely with strategic land managers and other consultants in the master planning, phasing and subsequent design of large land parcels to bring forward future residential development.
