DevelopDevelopment Manager

Creates opportunities, funds & manages performance

Our development management skills, bring together finance, construction expertise and development knowledge to create inspiring and sustainable developments that breath life into the environments in which we all live, work, learn and play.

We are experienced in managing the acquisition of an incoming producing asset, assessing options for a development, creating profitable investment opportunities or crafting innovative solutions for investors, fund partners or supporters (clients).

Our unique offering is being able to implement the opportunity or solution; we invest our time, resource and initial funds, against pre-agreed performance criteria and then execute the development delivery, together with securing potential options for pre-sale exits or anchor tenants; we are “the glue”.

Our team of skilled professionals understand what creates value, reduces the risk and assesses what the market needs and drivers are from the outset.

We often act as an extension to in-house development teams and are normally retained to undertake the professional management of the development.

Our core team is from both public and private sector backgrounds, we assist our supporters with their development strategies and the implementation of either investment and/or development delivery requirements.

F3GROUP is currently advising on major commercial and residential developments in central London, to complex regeneration mixed use schemes across the UK.

Our Approach: Is to formulate robust and appropriate strategies and manage the end to end development process from first stage due diligence.

Manage | Process & project teams
