Advisory and Management Services


We undertake strategic reviews for occupiers to assist senior management to formulate  a real estate strategy that matches closely the demands of the core business strategy.

Real estate is a major risk factor, especially for retail businesses, where any misalignment between the core business demand and its property costs can lead to significant losses and even business failure.

Systems and processes

Both Stephen and Peter have been involved for many years in the development and improvements of systems and processes in property strategy and management.

Peter has advised major banks, property companies and retailers on systems improvements.

Stephen has been an advocate of innovation and the application of technology in the management of property investments throughout his career and he has considerable experience in process design and change management.

Facilities Management

Facilities management tends to be a low margin business, and as such it is very difficult to source quality management at an affordable cost.

We provide a 'management' service to clients to assist them in tendering and procuring services in a cost effective manner with carefully designed service level targets to ensure that quality of service is maintained.

Having chaired Broadgate Estates, one of the most respected 'niche' facilities management companies in the UK, Peter is well positioned to understand the needs of customers and the delivery of FM services.
