We have more than 50 years of experience adapting to economic and political forces that affect construction. We've seen it all and we've grown stronger through it, optimising our strengths, our capabilities, our knowledge, our resourcefulness and our contacts.
With our experience, industry understanding, creative thinking and strategic partnerships, we can bring your project to fruition.
Higgins is adept in a wide range of different areas. Whether you need to maximise the value of your current land holdings, creating a revenue surplus that you can reinvest in your community, or if you need to source land to develop housing and infrastructure perhaps an innovative finance solution is required, then Higgins has the answer.
We can help you to develop your land.
If your preference is not to go through a traditional tendering procurement route we can offer a comprehensive development service. We are able to assist with funding options, provide commercial advice, identify alternative procurement routes and contribute to the sales and marketing strategy.
In a joint venture or negotiated situation we can utilise our in-house Technical Team and design partners to carry out a site appraisal which will provide the appropriate design and the optimum mix. We will then produce a construction programme and budget together with a sales analysis to determine the financial viability of the project.
Where your concern is with the time scales and cost of utilising the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) you can work with us through the use of the GLA and HCA frameworks which should reduce your procurement timetable.
Land is a finite resource, they just aren't making any more!
Acquiring land is a challange. We can help you source the land you need. We can do this by utlising our dedicated land managers who are constantly seeking development opportunities and engaging with our infrastructure of land sourcing professionals to identify suitable sites.
We also have direct access to public sector land disposals through placement on the GLA and HCA Framework Panels covering Greater London and the South East.
Do you need finance?
Our innovative solutions enable you to overcome financial obstacles and help to develop your scheme. At Higgins we understand that everybody is under pressure to deliver projects with limited financial resources.
We are experienced in overcoming project constraints and creating innovative finance solutions. Our commercial and financial strategies are tailored to the needs of individual projects, and we work closely with clients and the communities to deliver cost-effective solutions that improve lives.
We have long standing funding arrangements with financial institutions.
We work with clients in a number of ways including Joint Venture arrangements, agreed stage payments and 'Golden Brick' back-to-back land solutions.
