Development Advisory

In the property market, timing is everything. It’s particularly critical in the case of new developments where value capture and financial opportunity can be permanently lost if not identified at the outset. In these circumstances, hindsight is no friend.

While a common approach to early project conceptualisation is design-led, DMA joins project teams with an intense, commercially-driven approach to feasibility assessment and options exploration in the very early phase. We work alongside the design team to deliver the best scheme in terms of being buildable, marketable and of course financially successful.

Put simply, we look at the numbers without favour or prejudice. We sit beside our clients and seek the best possible solution assessed against your goals, reflecting the site opportunities and constraints, the market appetite, the optimal finance structure and much more.

DMA delivers outcomes which allow our clients to proceed with complete confidence.

Our services include:

    • Asset due diligence and risk assessment

Project Management

DMA’s project management approach maintains our intense focus on best-for-project objectives and longer-term asset value.

Through the intelligent integration of diverse skills and perspectives, DMA’s project team delivers value far beyond that which could be achieved by single-discipline project management services delivered in isolation.

With this collaborative mindset, we find efficiencies which mean we can consistently meet or exceed your cost and time imperatives. But we don’t stop there. DMA deliberately and strategically brings forward new opportunities which can be realised through collaboration across the project team at every project stage… from cost planning and contractor engagement to construction and ultimately, project completion.

Project management is by nature a process-heavy discipline. However, when robust process meets DMA’s agile thinking exceptional outcomes become possible.
