Government Public Sector

As a leading advisor to the public sector, we help our clients face some of today’s biggest challenges - those of responding to greater customer demands, of developing new service models and of constrained capital and revenue funding.

The shape of public services is changing as the sector faces new challenges. Demands are rising, while at the same time funding is being restricted. However, new technology presents opportunities to meet today's service needs in different ways.

We understand the sector and its challenges, making us perfectly placed to provide targeted advice to the public sector. We support public sector occupiers in finding accommodation and property interests that allow for the delivery of high quality and cost effective public services.

Delivering Public Sector Policy

Providing robust citizen services and supprting economic growth are crucial governmental objectives. Social housing, property investment and project development form part of this. These goals are supported by central and local governments, public agencies, local private/public partnerships and a range of other public services throughout the country. They are driven by central government, local government, devolved administrations, local enterprise partnerships, Homes England and a range of other public agencies operating across the UK.

We help the public sector to deliver real estate-related policy objectives: property development, property investment and property management. We do this by bringing our commercial market expertise together with our understanding of policy, funding and decision-making within the public sector.

Work Across the Public and Private Sectors

The distinction between public and private is becoming ever more blurred. Increasingly the public sector is looking to the private sector for funding and development know-how and to manage its property interests.

The public sector is seeking to invest in property, looking for commercial returns to generate extra income.

We advise both the public sector and the private sector in these interactions. Thanks to our unique understanding of the interests, motivations and objectives of each party, we help them to develop service strategies, to achieve development objectives and to generate commercial returns.

How to appoint us through Public Sector Frameworks

We are members of a number of public sector framework, giving clients cost effective and straightforward access to our services.
