Our key focus in the design stages is to ensure that buildings work on a practical level, so that once they have been completed they can be managed efficiently and effectively on a day-to-day basis, whilst working for the occupier, manager and landlord.
We run tenders to deliver the best management solution with a focus on delivering management services that enhance the long term reputation of the scheme.
We can create a dynamic management blueprint which captures the thinking as to how a development will operate and how it is managed. Experience tells us that this can be invaluable from a future operational perspective.
Amenity and Services Advice
Integrating occupier services within the design and development process can add significant value. We provide advice on the best use of front and back of house space to enhance the occupiers’ experience.
Service Charge Calculations
Our current market knowledge and previous experience managing a wide range of residential and mixed use schemes allows us to build detailed, realistic service charge budgets and apportion costs meticulously.
Lease Provision Reviews
Getting lease provisions right is critical for any property developer to ensure recovery and minimise the risk of future disputes. We add a practical perspective when carrying out lease reviews working with our clients’ legal teams.
Developing a robust legal structure is one of the most important factors in safeguarding a long-term investment. We work closely with clients’ legal teams to review the draft leases and proposed legal structures.
District and Communal Heating
We offer advice ranging from input on the system set up and design provisions to legal guidance, metering and billing advice and leaseholder communication strategies.

These can include: spa managers, lifestyle managers, front of house teams, handover and defects management, resident portals and resident guides.
We can provide advice as to the most suitable management and communication systems to match the operational needs of a building and ensure that the management team are equipped with the right tools to run the scheme.
