The Property Development market is riddled with many areas of risk that need to be managed to deliver a profitable development. One of the key challenges in today’s market is how to limit the risk of dealing with ‘Brownfield Land’ as part of your development budget.
MEL (UK) Ltd (MEL) can eliminate that risk completely by taking the responsibility of delivering a ‘Fit For Purpose’ site with all necessary approvals to allow the development program to commence.
This can be done on a fixed cost basis so all the risk is placed firmly with MEL and there are no unforeseen costs to deal with. We have at our disposal a comprehensive range of remediation options which have been proven to deliver time and time again.
This is a proven approach adopted by us to ensure that you can budget and plan your development effectively and with complete confidence and no surprises.
