The retail property landscape is constantly shifting and you need to be able to rely on us to understand how the sector is changing in order to protect your interests.

The retail property landscape is constantly shifting, making the need for reliable and commercially sensitive professional advice essential to those who own, occupy, operate/manage, let or invest in retail property.  We provide a complete range of commercial building surveying services and offer particular expertise in a number of core areas including technical due diligence, condition surveys, accessibility issues, planned preventative management (PPM) schedules,  project services (including design/coordination of refurbishments, fit-outs etc.), party walls and development monitoring.

Of course, our many landlord and tenant clients benefit from our industry-recognised expertise in the fields of dilapidations and service charges especially as regards the control and recoverability of capital expenditure and ongoing operating and maintenance costs relating to the building’s fabric and services.

Our in-house M&E team is also invaluable to clients, as the often complex services installations in retail premises demand specialist input in order to ensure that systems are maintained and enhanced to deliver expected performance, efficiency and continuity of service.

Amongst our impressive track record in this sector are a large number of shopping centres, retail parks and retail units including: Clyde Shopping Centre, Glasgow; The Stratford Centre, London; Eldon Square, Newcastle and the Quadrant Centre in Swansea.
