Estate Strategy & Business Case Development

We provide a process driven consulting approach to estate planning. This approach aligns real estate portfolios with operating, workforce, financial, and risk objectives and helps drives informed decision making.

We adopt HM Treasury Green Book Business Case processes to support major capital investment decisions.

We can provide portfolio analysis in line with public sector dividend objectives and growth strategies. This can identify properties for disposal, and help rationalise portfolios to achieve optimum cost efficiency and productivity.

Workplace Strategies

The Government’s guidance for non-healthcare workplaces says that everyone should be social distancing: ‘2 meters distancing where possible’. We anticipate this may become the new best practice for the workplace in the short to medium term. Similarly, occupiers will want to promote health and wellbeing for their people, and adopt these measures for the foreseeable future. We can offer workplace strategies to improve space occupation, identify estate rationalisation opportunities and exit strategies.
