Development


We’re with you at every stage of your projects’ lifecycle.

Our approach has led to successful projects across England and Wales in healthcare, education, energy, sport and social housing.

Through innovative funding structures, joint ventures and collaboration with strategic partners, we’ve facilitated the delivery of significant development projects – from complex infrastructure to regeneration.

We oversee all aspects of real estate development including acquisition, planning and environmental advice, funding, construction and leasing.

We work on all development projects, from the early stages of strategy and business case development, through to successful completion and beyond.

We’ve helped our clients deliver everything from green and brownfield schemes to town centre regeneration and campus buildings. We often work in partnership with our construction and property litigation colleagues, who can support you to resolve disputes through various methods.

  • I recently completed a NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety with Capital People, and I couldn’t be more impressed. The tutors were knowledgeable and engaging, the materials were comprehensive and well organised, and the overall learning experience was excellent. I particularly appreciated how accessible tutors were to answer questions in and out of training days. I would like to thank Mark in particular for providing the support I needed to achieve this qualification. I now feel more confident and equipped in my role. I would highly recommend Capital People as a trainer to others looking to complete similar qualifications.
