Helping Residential Property Developers maximise The Value of Your Site

Quality design and 35 years’ experience gives you the best strategic advice and design solutions for housing developments

We help you navigate the key challenges

For residential property developers, the key challenge is knowing how much a site is realistically worth and whether you can expect an adequate return on your investment. Assisting you with a site appraisal and then managing your risk as your project unfolds, is central to our service.

Development land is scarce and few projects are straightforward. You may be dealing with a tight urban infill plot, challenging local authorities, heavily constrained sites or green field developments.

Or you may be looking at complex mixed-use schemes, refurbishing existing buildings, working with Listed Buildings, or seeking a Change of Use. Many planning or technical issues may not be immediately obvious.

We provide advice on the likely potential of a site and identify any key issues that will require special attention, so you know early on what is achievable.

A Comprehensive Approach

With TP Architects you will benefit from some of the widest experience of successful residential housing developments throughout Greater London and the Thames Valley. (We have a track record of around 95% success in establishing planning consents).

Our comprehensive approach gives you a range of options to meet your project expectations. First rate technical design and strategic advice will enhance your chance of success and result in the best value for your development.
