Despite political and economic turmoil – we are helping developers drive value and maintain margins.

The current headlines are dominated by the rising cost of living and sky-high energy bills. As such many industries have been feeling the sting. Construction costs alone are at a 40-year high and are set to continue rising. Recent forecasts point to an increased cost of about 2.5% by the end of the year, with that number likely to be closer to 8.5% by the end of 2023.

The team at Brookbanks are proud to be working with many promoters and developers to support their schemes through our bespoke technical, commercial and development strategy appraisals that seek out value, opportunities, risks and rewards at all stages of the project life cycle.

Under our appraisal service, we will:

  • Seek out tangible gains to your net developable areas whilst identifying any other spatial opportunities;
  • Appraise your planning, technical and commercial work prepared to date and identify areas to reduce costs without compromising functionality;
  • Strategise and put in place a means to mitigate any remaining project risks;
  • Act as your independent advisor across all planning, technical, commercial and construction matters.

Do you want to drive more value into your project? Get in touch to discuss how we can help.
