Property and Construction
As the global landscape changes at a pace never seen before, through rapid population growth and increased urbanisation, sustainable property development has never been so vital.
Our dream for 2020 is that this will be the year the UK construction industry, in partnership with financiers and the government, works to deliver world-beating, sustainable infrastructure and housing projects.
RSK is a recognised leader in the property sector and well equipped to provide both consultancy and contracting solutions that meet a wide range of challenges. We are proud to be the largest independent consultancy in the residential sector and are ranked no. 1 for brownfield development by Environment Analyst. Thanks to our extensive experience, we can provide clients with flexible and pragmatic solution-focused services.
A sustainable partner
There can be no greater challenge facing the construction sector than tackling its current carbon footprint. According to a report by the Committee on Climate Change this year, energy use in homes accounts for 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions. Out of 29 million existing houses, only 1 million have low-carbon heating; a mere 1% of new homes built in 2018 had an EPC rating of A.
RSK understands these challenges and is working with clients to unlock the technologies required to achieve carbon neutrality.
We offer services that encompass the life cycle of a property development, from project initiation and site selection through to end-of-life phases. Our clients, which include private housebuilders, government organisations and commercial developers, trust in our broad expertise and experience, and ability to be a one-stop provider of solutions tailored to their needs and those of their projects. According to our clients, having access to this umbrella of services cuts their management time and costs, streamlines the development process and improves their return on investment.
Our experienced team aims to help our customers manage risks that they may face throughout their project, such as external planning issues and unexpected site conditions. By working closely with clients from the earliest possible stage and throughout projects, we can identify and act on challenges early, taking a proactive approach to prevent or mitigate issues. Customers value our exemplary track record and consistent, predictable performance. Our services cover project design and planning stages, including full design consultancy and support to the wider professional team, construction and operational phases and demolition and change-of-use projects.
