Once a use for a site has been identified, our in-house development team applies value engineering principles to remediateland and create development platforms. The effective preparation of land for future uses is an essential part of delivering new development across our portfolio.
Regenerating former industrial sites that have operated for up to a century often brings a range of technical challenges to consider during the transformation. This includes making land safe for development by removing hazardous materials and the re-filling of mine shafts and opencast quarries to create platforms. This work may also include the retention or the demolition of former industrial structures as part of delivering the identified vision for the development.
Our team are also experts in infrastructure development – we have the in-house capability to take responsibility for large-scale infrastructure such as access roads, service sections, power and water upgrades, often managing work across multiple developers and contractors. This ensures that developments are ‘oven-ready’ for eventual use, with the team also creating site gateways, landscaping and other presentational features.
