Development Management

There are countless decisions to make when tackling a property development and we can help you make the right ones. Engaging TPG from the outset can save you time, money and give you a development solution that optimises the potential of your existing property, or we can help you create a new property investment.

TPG has in-depth experience, both individually and collectively over the country on project delivery at all scales for both public and private sectors. We demonstrate added-value at every stage of the development process from strategy and visioning through to design, consenting and delivery.

We can assist you in managing risks through a no-surprises approach that anticipates and mitigates potential risks. This way you are proactive in your development, rather than reactive. The services we provide can be end to end, or in isolation, and no project is too big or too small.

Site search and acquisition

We undertake property searches and negotiate the purchase of thousands of properties a year for our clients. This experience positions us well to secure properties off market, using our mapping technology and independent property negotiators. Following a briefing on your search criteria we will seek out those properties presenting the best redevelopment opportunities.

Due diligence

We provide comprehensive due diligence reports on properties. We can identify development potential by utilising TPG Planning and our in-house legal team, together with our financial feasibility modelling expertise.

Our recommendations, insights and reports include financial feasibility and highest use development and redevelopment options. 

Feasibility studies

TPG conduct feasibility studies to identify whether there are viable development options for a particular site. This process involves financial modelling, demand and supply analysis, RMA planning and bulk location concepts, which allowing us to identify the most cost effective and appropriate use for a site.

Feasibility studies allow you to quickly establish if there are viable development opportunities for a site, ensuring the potential success of a project before taking the next steps in the development management process.

Strategic Resource Management

Our TPG Planning team can design a roadmap for steering you through potentially difficult and expensive Resource Management Act (RMA) processes for the identified development. This includes resource consent strategy and facilitating and management of building and resource consent processes.

Market research and demand analysis

Our services include property market assessments of actual supply and demand in conjunction with property specialists, scenario and needs analysis, multi-option scenario analysis and net realisation from sales to determine the best financial outcome for a your development site.

To assist us identifying the optimal use for a site, we utilise our internal expertise to develop bulk and location drawings. From these we can analyse the gross development yields.

Project management

TPG can manage the design and delivery of a project, including procurement of design consultants, main contractor, and other specialists. We can manage your project from inception through to project completion. 

Development Risk Mitigation Analysis

We work with our clients to put in place Development Management Risk Mitigation Plans.

Given the pandemic impact and the rapidly changing situation, we can provide a review to analyse risks, its implications, and to advise on possible ways to mitigate these. The objective of our analysis is to present options for various ways forward and, to the extent that is possible given the fluid situation, make recommendations on options presenting the least risk pathway. 

Our risk mitigation plans include contingency planning for consenting, construction and funding issues. They provide options and scenario analysis to identify the best methodology to minimise financial and programme consequences.

Risk Management

Our services include quantifying and managing development risk by testing the sensitivity of key variables such as construction time, sales values, cost of money and quality of outcomes. We support our clients with pre-commitments for anchor tenants and other measures to mitigate project risks.

Master planning and concept development

We provide overall management of the property development design process from concepts, bulk and location drawings through to detailed drawings for Resource Management Act (RMA) processes. We drive the demand analysis and financial feasibility of design options concurrently to ensure value for money is achieved.

Project structuring and financing

We provide modelling of joint venture arrangements to calculate returns to different parties. We support or lead the structuring and negotiations of Development Agreements for specific sites or precint developments. We support you with securing funding options with bank contacts and investors.
