Market knowledge for investors, developers and policy makers

analytical-services-2We are at the forefront of innovation in methods to analyse real estate dynamics and deploy a range of technical tools to deliver insight to clients.

For owning and investing clients, we undertake technical studies looking at areas such as building specification, rent reviews and occupational trends, including occupier density studies. We also undertake development appraisal and feasibility studies to underpin, for example, planning applications. We have recently examined the impact of rates revaluation on SMEs, viability assessments in the planning system, empty homes on high streets and changing workstyles.

For policy makers we have a range of tools and methods for reviewing planning policy, particularly in the area of responding to economic change and trends in the demand markets.

Recent Projects

The following is a brief review of some recent work undertaken by Ramidus for our growing client base.
Much of our work contains market/business sensitivities, and we are therefore only able to show a small cross section of work.

Empty Homes Agency

The EHA wished to understand the constraints and opportunities relating to potential action by property owners, local authorities, housing providers and others to make the most of empty commercial property and, in so doing, to help address the country’s housing needs. The project, published as Affordable Homes from Empty Commercial Spaces, gathered the perspectives of owners and business users of commercial property who might sell or lease premises to housing providers, or undertake conversion works themselves, and sell or rent the property directly as market housing

British Council for Offices

Undertook a data-based study of the role of occupancy costs in overall operational costs of business. The report, The Proportion of Underlying Business Costs Accounted for by Real Estate, helped to inform uninformed assumptions about the cost of real estate.
