The sale and purchase of land often constitutes the riskiest part of any development process. Whilst changes to a site’s layout or design philosophy can bring about improvement or cost savings at later stages of the development; the location of a site, coupled with the constraints it may bring, are often a fixed entity that may require due consideration and mitigation.
Land deals are often completed within a tight timescale, limited budget and prior to the involvement of a full design team. As such understanding precisely what is being bought and what may be possible in terms of redevelopment is not always available to prospective purchasers.
Our Strategic Land service provides developers and prospective purchasers with an insight to key considerations and constraints. These include below ground utility easements, drainage capacity, flood risk, ground contamination and stability issues at the pre-purchase stage. This high level initial appraisal can be tailored to suit individual sites and client requirements, in order to provide invaluable insight on risk during the early stages of the development process.
