I have land with full planning permission and want to Joint Venture with someone. Who do I JV with?
We offer a unique opportunity for a Joint Venture partnership with us to provide the funding and management of your development from start-to-finish.
Who will finance our Joint Venture project?
We work alongside our chosen financier to achieve a maximum interest rate of 6.5%, when the industry standard is typically 8.5% or higher.
I need someone to finance my development without any hassell, who do I choose?
We will focus on your land development without you having to worry about the financial burden or ongoing operational management of the project (also working to be compliant with the HSE). Selling your land after developing on it will often bring in 3 times the profits for you, rather than simply selling your land with planning approved.
Profits are split 50/50 with all Joint Venture projects
The interest rate we have secured is much better than the average interest rates banks or private lenders offer. This will make your investment much more profitable overall.
Our Joint Venture partnership is a win-win situation for both parties
We handle the funding and management of the project from start-to-finish, while you benefit from everything being handled on your behalf without lifting a finger. That’s what we are here for.
We will Project Manage the Joint Venture from start to finish as Quantity Surveyors
What does a Quantity Surveyor do on a Development Project?
As Quantity Surveyors, we manage all financial aspects of the construction development process, from pre-construction to post-construction.
We handle cost estimates, procurement, budget management, contract administration, cost control, and final account preparation.
We handle final account agreements, snagging lists, defects liability, maintenance schedules, contract management, cost forecasting, asset management, warranty claims and ongoing project management.
Do Quantity Surveyors go on site during Construction?
Overseeing all contractors actions whilst construction is taking place is a must for a good QS. Quantity Surveyors also liaise with external parties such as Building Inspectors, water boards and electrical suppliers. Also making sure the correct certifications are in place such as Electrical Certs and Plumbing Testing for full project completion and to stay compliant with legislation.
Quantity Surveyors will ensure that all costs are accounted for throughout.
Projects stay within budget when you are using a Quantity Surveyor on you development project.
