Development analysis

- a process for optimising profit 

We analyse development options with the express aim of significantly increasing land values.

Whatever your land is worth now, you could be realising a lot more value from the same asset.

Considerable experience in both residential and commercial property sectors has enabled us to develop a process and system which identifies your development's sweet spot. The purpose of our bespoke development analysis is to exclude doubt and uncertainty. We identify the option best able to maximise value and then put in place the delivery mechanism to achieve it.

We advise on both a local and national level and deal with sites both large and small.

1. Profit Maximisation of Development Land 

We've developed a process which identifies where the sweet spot is within both residential and commercial property development proposals or shows how to maximise the value of virgin land.

Typically, up to thirty seven distinct legal, technical, planning and design points are analysed. Cost and value drivers are identified and these are then optimised and validated to check for deliverability and the revised scheme is residually assessed.

2. Making Mixed Use Development Work

Whether a scheme is commercial or residentially led, we provide advice on all aspects of mixed use development. From strategic site identification and acquisition, to planning, master planning, legal maximisation, development appraisal, land and property sales and lettings.

3. Section 106, CIL and Affordable Housing Negotiations 

A crucial part of the development process is the successful identification and negotiation of Section 106 agreements or CIL liabilities. Intelligent Land has a proven track record in the negotiation and delivery of the most viable solutions regarding both Section 106 and Affordable Housing obligations. As part of this process we examine and identify areas of optimum return. Specific services include:
