Our philosophy is simple and one that we have demonstrated time and time again. The key to successful development is by paying absolute attention to detail, from inception through to completion of the project, no stone is left unturned.

Throughout our property development career we have produced many memorable schemes, the focus always being on quality, design and delivering the project on time.

We pride ourselves on being able to identify ‘niche opportunities’, which can be developed profitably. Property development is becoming more competitive due to more rigorous planning regulations and the increasing value of land. It is a rare achievement in this industry, but we can currently boast that we have ultimately been successful with every planning application that has been submitted. This has been assured by the careful approach adopted, ensuring that all aspects of the scheme are considered.

Although successful in our own right, we have also enjoyed joint ventures with vendors, fellow developers, occupiers and funding institutions. Due to our successful track record, this has led to us being retained by some of the country’s leading retailers, who have chosen to continue their relationship with Mercian because of the thriving developments we have been involved with.

The future continues to look bright for the Company. We have secured an attractive and valuable list of projects which will come to fruition during the next three years, ensuring that the prospects for the Group look very exciting, and to continue the Group’s expansion.

Mercian are also expanding the Company’s property portfolio as a direct result of the successful and varied developments undertaken, and the strong cashflow that has been created out of development disposals.
