Approach


Our aim is to undertake any development with a dynamic approach. This has resulted in the company establishing a very successful track
record in property development.
We have completed projects in all sectors of the property market including:

  • Food retail, discount, supermarket and superstore sectors
  • Non-food retail, both stand-alone and retail parks
  • Commercial offices and headquarters
  • Residential, including luxury apartments and retirement housing
  • Leisure, including fast food restaurants, multiplex cinemas and health & fitness complexes
  • Industrial, including stand-alone structures and industrial estates.
  • High Street Retail

Many of our developments are mixed-use development, providing a combination of the above sectors in a single site application.

Property development can often be a specialised exercise, employing many varied disciplines including:

  • Site identification
  • Site assembly
  • Site investigation into ground conditions
  • Resolving highway issues
  • Dealing with ecology and landscape
  • Acceptable design criteria
  • Negotiation of planning permission
  • Cost effective construction

With many years of experience we have this down to a fine art, having successfully put sites together varying from 0.5 acre up to 35 acres.

Our developments are delivered effectively and efficiently because we value all of these aspects and take even the smallest of details into consideration. We work on a national scale with a trusted and established team of partner professionals comprising architects, planners, engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers, ecologists, solicitors and agents, to ensure this level of quality is maintained.

Mercian is also very committed, wherever possible, to regeneration and much of our business concentrates on the development of 'brownfield' rather than 'greenfield' projects.

Our success is the result of a flexible approach, giving us the ability to adapt and maximise the full potential from a site. This results in a development that ultimately satisfies the land owner, the occupier and the funding institution/purchaser.
