Development Delivery

Breaking complex projects into discrete milestones to add value and deliver risk-mitigated developments to time, cost and specification

Our 5-Phase Development Process

DEV:elemental’s 5-phase process has been devised to bring viable developments forward for successful delivery.

A methodology proven across multiple projects, the model allows ab initio or experienced property developers to reach their investment aims and goals.  Tailorable to an individual’s specific circumstances and requirements, the process follows the following steps:

5-Step-Process

Pre-Activity: Express Service Viability Appraisal

Each opportunity is unique but typically DEV:elemental’s ‘Express Service Viability Appraisal’ service investigates and summarises the following factors:

Detailed review of client’s brief for redevelopment requirements
Site & situation appraisal
Past, current and potential use of the site
Existing outline, full or expired planning approval review and impact appraisal
Site capacity appraisal and / or technical appraisal of incumbent design solutions
Buildability appraisal and cost-relevant site factors
High level development cost projection
Market projections for disposal or rental market

Phase 1: Business Case Development

The second product forms Phase 1 of our typical delivery method and forms the Business Case Development Plan. This is a much more in-depth consideration of a site, looking at design solutions or optimisation (where an incumbent design is featured), as well as wide range of other aspects to develop a Business Case report, which can be used to support the successful funding and progress with the development.

This is a report which forms the backbone of the development moving forwards. Typically, the contents of this report will include the following:

Funding options analysis and recommendation (if required)
Procurement options analysis and recommendation based on known factors such as client or funder requirements, but to reflect market situation, best practice and best value solutions
Design team scope and fees
Detailed programme of activity
Cash flow projection
Outline design solutions
Advice on surveys / reports needed to progress
Planning Pre-Application Advice (if appropriate or necessary)
Buildability strategy
Development cost projection and cash flow analysis
Market projections for disposal or market rental along with pre-let negotiations where appropriate

The cost for this report is dependent on scale, complexity and depth required for a scheme and detailed quotes can be provided upon request by filling in this online form.

Phase 2: Local Authority Approval

To move on the project we need get everyone on board and aligned.  This involves seeking approvals from among others:

Planning
Listed building consent
Building control approval
Other consultees e.g. Welsh Water, Natural Resources Wales, S106 commitments etc.

Phase 3: Contractor Procurement & Detailed Design

During the early phases of work, we will work with you to establish the preferred method of contractor procurement. There are a wide range of options depending on timescales/funder requirements and scale/complexity of works will also factor into any recommendation we provide. We have excellent relationships with contractors from local builders who are suitable for small builds and refurbishments, to regional contractors capable of multi-million-pound developments, all the way to national/international contractors with turnover more than £1b. We have close relationships with the decision makers at each type of contractor, and as such can ensure that the right options are put forward to meet all your needs.

We work closely with a range of Consultants and will detail out scope of service for each, to ensure that the necessary design work is undertaken by the appropriate party. The scope of service for each consultant will be bespoke depending on the nature of the development to ensure that consultant fees are kept under strict control to minimise expenditure.

Phase 4: Construction

Once a contract sum and delivery programme has been determined through the procurement process, we will manage the delivery of the Building Contract, acting as Contract Administrators from commencement through to completion, and through the 6-12-month defects period. We will visit the site on a regular basis, hold monthly formal progress meetings with the Contractor, and provide reports on progress along with verified valuations / payment certificates for the works undertaken to date.

Phase 5: Sales / Letting / Disposals

We have long-established links with the Local Authorities with which we work, as well as Housing Associations, Registered Social Landlords and Retail Tenants, to investigate opportunities for pre-lease agreements prior to construction to give certainty of development yield, as well as a wide range of options for sales and disposals depending on the preference of the Investor.
