We have the knowledge and proven capabilities to work alongside clients in all spheres of activity to deliver objectives and create long-term sustainable success throughout the development cycle.
An evolving environment
Globally, the urban population now exceeds the rural population. The increasing demand for housing stems from economic development and wealth creation. These, in turn, have increased pressure on available land and tightened the ratio of cost to value for developers.
Population growth has created significant demand in the residential market in both developed and emerging economies. Housing demand in developed economies is being fuelled by the recovery from the global financial crisis and the attraction of internationally-mobile funding. In the emerging economies, aspiring middle-class consumers are driving the demand for better living conditions.
