Industries & Sectors

Public Sector Property

Helping the Public Sector deliver policy objectives and service excellence.

The Public Sector as a Property Occupier

The shape of public services is changing as the sector faces new challenges. Demands are rising while, at the same time, funding is restricted. New technology means that service needs can be met in different ways.

Effective service delivery requires a fit for purpose estate, designed to ensure service excellence, developed to provide value for money and managed efficiently.

We are about defining, refining and delivering property solutions that address the sector’s challenges.

We work in all parts of the public sector:

  • Central government (and its agencies)
  • Local government (including devolved administrations)
  • Health sector and NHS
  • Education (universities, colleges and schools)
  • Regeneration agencies (such as Homes England)
  • Transport and Infrastructure providers
  • “Blue light” services
  • Social Housing
Delivering Public Sector Policy

Building more homes and supporting economic growth are fundamental public policy objectives. 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 deliver policy aims and objectives related to property development, property investment and property management. We do this by bringing our commercial market expertise together with our understanding of how public sector policy, funding allocations and decision-making can best support delivery of development.

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 to deliver funding, provide development know how and to manage its property interests.

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

We advise both the public sector and the private sector in these interactions. With our unique understanding of the interests, motivations and objectives of each side, helping both sides to deliver service strategies, to achieve development objectives and to generate commercial returns.
