​Property Consultancy & Strategy

Carter Jonas’s Property Consultancy & Strategy team works with property owners to develop holistic estate strategies that are readily designed for implementation. 

Our established team works with other experts across our multi-disciplinary firm to provide a diverse range of core and specialist property services to clients. We can draw on decades of experience in both the public and private sectors.

We strive to improve the efficiency of occupied operational estates, and at the same time save costs, by offering the following services:

  • Estate strategy
  • Strategic property consultancy
  • Options appraisals
  • Asset reviews
  • Estate rationalisation and consolidation
  • Relocation and acquisition management
  • PFI (Private Finance Initiative) contract management

Property Consultancy & Strategy Services

Our business cases range from concise short-form plans for senior management, committee or board-level approval, through to HM Treasury’s Five Case Model and supplementary Green Book guidance for formal review by the Cabinet Office.

We operate from offices in Central London and key regional centres throughout the UK, and are supported by other colleagues across our multi-disciplinary firm. This ensures that not only can we provide fully informed strategic advice, based on local knowledge, but we can also follow our recommendations through to implementation, using our colleagues across the country to provide the specialist skills and regional knowledge required.

Our work falls into three broad categories: portfolio reviews; decision-making support and business cases; and operational portfolio support.

We provide the support required by property owners to improve the performance of their operational estates, ensuring that they remain aligned with their business objectives. We work with our clients to develop holistic estate strategies, which are designed to deliver the changes identified. If required, we can also support clients through the business case approval process.

The key dynamic of our estate strategies is that they are designed to be ready for implementation.
