At the beginning of 2011 Caleb was commissioned to be Mansell Homes' retained development consultants, to identify opportunities across the South West in particular – Bristol, Somerset, West Dorset, Devon and Cornwall. And already our first scheme has been successfully put into place, in Bristol.
Our role with Mansell involves identifying sites and development opportunities for Mansell South West (based in Exeter), working with their construction expertise and financial strength.
This first scheme was achieved at Church Road, Bristol, for which we put together a Construction Finance package to assist the developer in completing their project.
They had planning and bank funding to buy the site, but no support to see it through to conclusion.
Since then, we have developed an ongoing relationship with the developers, Havard Tisdale, and are now working with them, along with Mansell South (Southampton) on further projects, to be announced soon.
Thanks to Mansell's flexibility, we're looking forward to delivering many more schemes in other ways in the future, as they are prepared to act as contractor, developer, JV partner or funder. An interesting new chapter for us all.
