Working with UK Public Sector Bodies

Our teams have years of experience providing property management, building consultancy and placemaking services for over 30 local authorities and other public sector bodies nationwide.

As public sector bodies have increasing exposure to, and requirements of their real estate portfolios, specialist real estate advice to maximise returns has become essential.

Our appointments have been secured through a range of public sector framework appointments and OJEU tender procedures, so we understand public sector procurement requirements. Combined with our expertise across all property sectors, and an understanding of the unique stakeholder requirements in the public sector, we provide the external commercial insight to drive performance.

PUBLIC SECTOR SERVICES
FOR 30+ LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Property Management

We provide the full range of property management services across more than 9m sq.ft of public sector assets. Although our service has been developed on getting the basics right – income collection, site services and standards, health & safety compliance, service charge management – we are continually evolving the service in areas such as occupier experience, sustainability, health & wellbeing and social value, to meet the demands of modern investors and occupiers.

Placemaking

Local authorities are playing an increasingly pro-active role in the repositioning of town centre environments. We believe it’s vital to put the ultimate users of those locations at the centre of planning, design and management and build positive relationships with local stakeholders, to create a sense of belonging and establish the location’s role in the community.

Based on local research and insight, our Activate placemaking team provide concepts, feasibility advice, and detailed business planning for local authorities for their regeneration options. Typical projects include master-planning of town centre mixed-use schemes, the feasibility analysis of town centre market re-locations and concepts for the re-purposing of vacant commercial space.
