Property Developers | Project Managers | Commercial Energy Assessors (NDEA)

We’re a small team based in Chelmsford, focusing on residential and mixed-use development opportunities in Essex and neighbouring counties. We also provide a project management service for existing clients and offer a commercial energy assessment (NDEA) and advice service.

About us

With almost 30 years’ experience in residential, commercial and mixed-use development in Essex, Suffolk, Herts, Greater London and various parts of the Midlands for selected clients, we understand development. We work with a trusted team of other property professionals and consultants, and have built a wealth of local knowledge. Our development management experience combines the skills of a Chartered Planning & Development Surveyor (MRICS), Considerate Constructors Scheme Monitor and Commercial Energy Assessor (NDEA).


Here’s a small selection of our recent projects:


Conditional site acquisition and
detailed planning application for two large detached houses in Chelmsford. GDV £2m. Site sold Sept 2020.


Secured PD consent for conversion of existing offices to residential. GDV £700,000. Conversion works under way Sept 2021.


Conditional sale of site for new houses and apartments on former industrial site. GDV £2.2m. Site sold March 2020.


Secured planning permission for ten new homes on greenfield site. GDV £6m. Site sold September 2021.

Project Management

Our typical involvement with a project runs from identification of an opportunity long before acquisition, until the end of the warranty provider’s initial defects period (ie 2 years following Practical Completion) and includes every step in between.

We manage projects up to various stages, according to clients’ requirements, and can tailor our approach to suit.

The processes we use are exactly the same as we would use with our own projects. As we are a small team, we don’t have the resources to manage larger projects in-house.

Our projects to date include planning consent for 91 new homes over 7 sites.

Our current pipeline includes 65 new homes over 4 sites.

And we're always looking for further opportunities.

Commercial EPCs

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is legally required prior to the sale or marketing of a commercial property in the UK. There are some exceptions, and we have experience of dealing with exempt properties.

Our Stroma Certified commercial energy assessor (NDEA) undertakes Level 3 and 4 assessments in Essex and the surrounding counties. Assessment work can be undertaken outside of usual working hours, thereby avoiding disturbance to occupiers and/or tenants.

We’d be happy to discuss your Non-Domestic EPC requirements in more detail – even if you’d just like a quick chat to confirm how the rules apply to your property.

Sorry, we can’t undertake Domestic Energy Assessment (DEA) work, but we’d expect your estate agent would be happy to recommend an assessor.


We’re not restricted to specific requirements, so we’d be keen to look any opportunities within the following broad parameters:

  • Off-market deals
  • Typically 1-30 units
  • Essex and surrounding counties
  • Usually without planning permission (or with improvement potential)
  • …and we’re happy to recognise effective introductions
