At Douglas and King we champion our clients and always put their best interests first. We achieve this through a shared approach to aspirations and opportunities, investment strategies and site evaluations. We know unlocking value is key.
We assess the risk and plan the extent of investments required and the financial model for the development whether it is commercial, residential, or social housing. We outline how to deliver the maximum development potential through design-led solutions.
We keep up to date with emerging planning and building law and have an excellent relationship with the UK’s leading consultants and will introduce you to them to resolve issues along the way.
We collaborate closely with clients, fellow design professionals, local planners and building control officers, contractors and suppliers – all of these are valuable partners who collectively deliver the successful outcome of a project. We have a talented team in-house and can assemble a first-class external team from our established partners.
We embrace the role of Project Manager in order to co-ordinate all stages of a project from conception through planning, design, construction and handover. As project manager we can predict and monitor the project throughout its timeline.

During the early stages of a project we concentrate on information gathering, feasibility studies, density/development issues, planning history, site surveys, precedents. Consideration is given to existing structures, immediate boundary issues, physical relationships, infrastructure and planning policy. This provides a platform for the concept and brief: it is the foundation upon which the next stages of the project are implemented.
