Our team has been involved in some of the most complex and high-value country-house projects of the last 20 years. We work in partnership with our clients to create a strategy that fits with their unique circumstances, ensures the smooth running of their estate and maximises the potential of what are very valuable assets.
Estate Management & Strategy
As rural-practice chartered surveyors we are experts in all aspects of rural estate management and long-term land use strategy whether conventional, regenerative, re-wilding or net-zero. Land use can have many competing demands, be it landscape, amenity, agriculture, environmental or recreation. We work with our clients to find the right balance.
Project Assembly & Structure
Putting the right design and project team in place on the appropriate terms of business will have a dramatic impact on the overall cost, both emotional and financial, as well as the ultimate success of the project.
Benchmarking Operating Costs
Cheapest is not necessarily best but value for money is essential. We advise clients with property running costs ranging from £100k per annum up to £2m. And we know what the true cost of operation should be.
Staffing & Recruitment
Once the construction phase is over, real life begins. Living happily ever after depends on having the right people on board. We are experts in recruitment of staff, including Estate & House Managers, and ensuring there is effective management on the ground. We also supervise staff, carry out appraisals, arrange health & safety policies, training and deal with disciplinary or redundancy situations.
In over 30 years of practice, we’ve become experts in solving even the most unusual and complex of problems and we do so in a way that is sensitive and discreet.
