Second only to personnel, premises are the biggest cost to most businesses.
Whether you rent or own the property from where you run your business, you want it to work hard for you and to be the best possible platform for your business.
You need to ensure it meets your requirements and will not be the source of any unexpected expense in the future. Our building surveys will give you a full picture of the property before you make a commitment and a condition survey will protect your position for dilapidations.
Running a business from a property also brings responsibilities. Our review of its statutory compliance will ensure your property is fully compliant with legislation. From fire risk assessments to access consultancy services, we are there to help.
And our planned maintenance surveys will help you plan expenditure to keep your building in a serviceable condition.
If you need space to establish your business or room for it to grow, a feasibility study will help you weigh up your options. If you are building new premises or extending an existing one we can support your project as part of a design team, as cost consultants. We can manage health and safety requirements as CDM 2015 Advisors. We can also manage the design process and assist in obtaining planning permission and steer your project to a successful completion as project managers.
We have the experience and expertise to be the ideal property partner to help your business grow.

“Commercial investment either as a landlord or a tenant, has many rewards but also many potentially expensive pitfalls. Every client has different perceptions and requirements for their property from acquisition, development and refurbishment.
We believe that it is essential to know from the outset what you may be investing in and any potential problems or costs that might be attributable to that property and how any existing conditions may affect the investment.
You will want your property to work as hard as it can for you, does it need refurbishment or extending to add value, or could you benefit from a new development. We have extensive experience in schemes ranging from a few thousand pounds to multi-millions.” Andrew Long, Associate
