We work with leading funders, builders, owners and occupiers to optimise the whole-life return on property investment.
This development expertise is underpinned by Carillion’s track record in delivering award-winning and complex regeneration projects that have brought new life to declining city centres, put disused brownfield land to better use and offered fresh opportunity to neglected communities.
Carillion has an unrivalled understanding of planning and development opportunities nationwide, including local knowledge of the long term, publicly funded development areas supported by European and other agencies.
Most importantly, we understand the issues that will make a location desirable for a particular project and can work with land owners and planners to acquire or lease premium sites that meet a very specific brief.
We consider every aspect of the location, including connections to transport networks, demographic profiling, potential sources of financial support or development grants, planning and neighbourhood issues, environmental and geotechnical issues. This means we can identify the site that offers the quickest and most secure return on investment.
Carillion has the financial strength and experience to proactively acquire land and develop proposals on behalf of our clients. Risk-sharing, partnership and leasehold arrangements all provide flexible options for organisations even at a time of economic uncertainty.
In 2016 we purchased a majority stake in Ask, the Manchester-based real estate company aiming to create a £500m pipeline of commercial property development schemes across the Northern Powerhouse region.
Today’s development projects often include multiple sectors: retail, health, leisure, education and residential. Carillion has a wealth of sector-specific experience and expertise. This can be integrated into a multidisciplinary development team able to work closely with eventual owners and occupiers as well as local planners and neighbours.
From first concept through construction to ongoing facilities management and support services, we provide high quality, cost-effective, sustainable solutions for both private and civic developments.
