With a significant property portfolio, NHS property managers are balancing a number of priorities: the challenges of integration via the ICS agenda; the end of the PFI programme; and the need to further reduce costs.
With over 20 years’ experience supporting the public sector with their property requirements, we ensure your properties are not only safe and compliant for those who use them, but that your individual property or property portfolio is as cost-efficient and sustainable as possible. Our transactional estates experts can review, assess, create strategies and advise on your property portfolio; our facilities management team delivers effective and efficient spaces within your building(s); and our maintenance and compliance professionals ensure your building - and its equipment and assets - remain compliant at all times.
Estates and infrastructure are not just about costs or estates strategies: property in healthcare is about people and the lived experience. NHS estates have a significant influence on how patients, carers and NHS staff experience healthcare, and how it can be safely and effectively delivered. From issues such as reducing patient attendance anxiety, physical safety and infection control, to staff wellbeing, there’s more to consider than facilities management.
Whether providing an on-off service or supporting organisations who don’t have the required in-house capacity, we provide flexible expertise when you need it. And with wide experience of working across a variety of estates, such as local authority buildings, social housing, schools, universities, leisure centres and NHS buildings, including hospitals and health centres, we’re ideally placed to support you with the ICS agenda. We also provide expert and flexible planning and building control resilience to support the progression of major regeneration schemes achieve their renovation projects.

Focus on net zero
Public sector bodies have been given zero-carbon targets to help reach net zero by 2050. But with some 300,000 public properties contributing 3% of all carbon emissions in the UK, in many cases this will mean retrofitting whole buildings - even estates - to ensure they’re energy-efficient. Such scale of work requires additional expertise, skills and resource capacity.
Our experienced property specialists can help, providing advice, planning and business case submission on energy efficiency measures across your property portfolio. We work side by side with your teams, applying advanced data analytics skills and funding knowledge alongside construction and building surveying expertise to deliver the best value to you.
