Our innovative approach to due diligence, pre-planning and other development services.

Today, sites are more constrained and challenging than ever before. Development and planning issues are becoming more complex and require greater expertise and experience to identify issues, maximise financial return, manage liabilities, reassure investors and deliver optimum solutions.

Our bespoke Foursite service helps our clients unlock site constraints, optimise value and realise the development potential of assets. Clients tell us that our resourcefulness, creativity and joined-up approach mark us out from the crowd.

And when it’s time to build, we can help with that too. We’re experts at coordinating our services and our lateral view of matters frequently throws up intelligent solutions that save money, deal with problems and exploit potential.

Foursite Delivers:

Foursite Transport Planning

Transport Planning

Highways and transportation issues are often a major factor in the viability and value of sites. We secure cost-effective and deliverable planning consents across a diverse range of sectors. Our services cover all stages from pre-acquisition, inception and feasibility, through the development plan and planning application stages, including planning appeals.

Transport Planning


We tailor our outputs to our client’s risk profile and quantify the hidden risks from contamination and geotechnical issues. We present clear summaries, with outcome-focussed cost modelling based on real-life scenarios at transaction stage, which is refined at later stages. After the deal is done, we continue to maximise value by providing the necessary support to negotiate through the planning process.



Our technical expertise in developing economic highway and ground modelling solutions can optimise value and unlock sites. We offer a range of ever more important sustainable flood management and drainage services, including flood risk assessments which protect investments and deliver peace of mind.

Buildings and Structures

Buildings and Structures

Working with developers and contractors, we can provide early structural advice to enable the quantification of potential site risks and cost-effective solutions – whether it be for old structures, dilapidated buildings or vacant sites.
