The team have been involved in some of the most high profile projects in The Channel Islands and are the leading specialists in this field. Examples include land acquisitions for Jersey’s “Our Hospital” project (£800m), the “Future Hospital” project and Les Quennevais School. In terms of strategic advice, recently we have worked with Jersey Water and developed their corporate property strategy and The States of Guernsey on Leale’s Yard strategic review, to name a few.
These are complex, often highly sensitive and emotive projects, particularly when compulsory purchase is employed (used as a last resort). Each situation needs a flexible and highly responsive approach to reach a successful conclusion. The team is used to presenting their findings and solutions to senior politicians and be cross examined.
In terms of strategic advice, we draw on our local market knowledge, as well as experience gained from the UK, employing the latest valuation software and expertise within the wider team.
These projects are highly complex and often last years, as opposed to months.
