We explore economic potential to help investors accelerate schemes from inception to delivery. Clients often use our findings to strengthen investment proposals, to secure planning permission and to support publicity campaigns. We work for investment bodies to assess business cases and advise on expected economic returns. We also help major corporate institutions demonstrate the economic value of their business activities.
Assessing Economic Need and Impact
We specialise in the rigorous and independent exploration of social and economic impacts across a wide range of policies, projects and investments. Our technical expertise has been harnessed by private developers, major UK businesses, government agencies, trade bodies, universities, taskforces and public-private partnerships. Our work can strengthen investment proposals, illuminate communication campaigns and advance major schemes through the planning system. We have also developed a specialism in assessing housing need.
We develop compelling proposals underpinned by in-depth data analysis, insightful lessons, astute market intelligence and expert inputs from industry. We help clients secure public and private investment by developing initiatives which generate attractive returns, align with strategic priorities and tackle real needs on the ground. We have successfully secured funding for private sector developers, manufacturers, sector bodies, cluster organisations, public and third sector organisations.
Appraise Value for Money
Our appraisal service helps bidders strengthen their plans and secure greater value for investors. We help locate intervention options and calculate future costs and benefits across a range of scenarios. We predict economic impact and explore potential regeneration benefits to help our clients increase returns on investment and secure a better deal for investors.
