What we do

We help organisations improve because we understand the sector we work in and offer a comprehensive range of services which complement each other.
pod work in three major areas – development consultancy, financial modelling and chartered surveying. We’re committed to bringing innovative ideas to these areas, developing solutions that work for all types of organisations.
Financial Modelling

Building industry-leading toolkits

We have developed a range of unique and robust toolkits, built with an insider’s knowledge of the industry. We take pride in the clarity and usability of our toolkits, all aimed at helping our clients fully understand the potential, financial viability or outcome of a project, and specialise in tailoring them to their specific needs.

Delivering with third party toolkits

We undertake scheme and financial modelling using our toolkits as well as third party toolkits, including the Three Dragons Assessments, which enables developers to determine the viable level of affordable housing a site will support. We have been successful in agreeing and negotiating a number of section 106 affordable housing levels for clients. In some boroughs where we do not undertake Three Dragons Assessments for clients, we work with local authorities to scrutinise and validate Three Dragons Assessments.

Real analysis for real solutions

We are breaking new ground by anticipating changing policy ideas and adapting our expertise to meet policy changes – like the new rent tenure system and change in grant rate. We provide actual analysis such as helping clients to understand what the reduction in grant rate might do to the pipeline of new build housing in London.


Chartered Surveying

A clear approach

We offer a full range of building surveying and professional services. Among them are major technical roles such as contract administration, Employers’ Agent role and general building surveying services such as stock condition surveys and heritage building surveys. We also carry out Quantity surveying and CDMC.

Bespoke Contract Roles

We constantly strive to provide the best possible service for our clients with our bespoke contract roles: party wall matter, fire risk assessment and Planning and building control advice and consultation.

Leading, by design

We are currently operating as lead designer on a number of sites in the south-east of England, producing a coherent and detailed design to allow the main contractor to price sub-contract packages – allowing them in turn to obtain a firm contract sum. In this scenario we manage the whole design process including the co-ordination of other sub consultants.
