Conventional client-consultant relationships work well for most schemes, however on sites where the in-ground risks make the feasibility of the development less certain the developer can sometimes need to accept an uncomfortable level of risk, or simply walk away from a potentially profitable site. Similarly land owners with a property asset perceived to have significant in-ground risk can be expected to take substantial discounts from market values. GDP recognises these issues and is willing to work in partnership with developers or landowners to offer its services to ‘de-risk’ property and/or achieve planning milestones without taking a conventional fee.

Fully understanding the financial implications and latent ownership liabilities associated with a development site, single property asset acquisition or portfolio of sites is fundamental to a commercially successful project. GDP provides a full suite of EDD services to funds and investors and for the M&A market highlighting and monetising environmental liabilities prior to purchase. For the developer we have decades of experience providing detailed feasibility advice including budget remediation costs and highlighting residual risks to enable developers to progress matters with confidence and in knowledge of all the commercial facts.
