Ken Thurtell



I’m a Consultanct at Gerald Eve. I have significant experience of advising clients on rating, valuation, lease consultancy, dispute resolution and compulsory purchase matters with a focus on energy and utilities, all types of commercial premises, NHS and higher educational facilities.

I provide rating advice to power generating companies in Scotland, dealing with Transmission and Distribution networks, power stations and renewables sites. I also advise University clients on rating and valuation matters, dealing with strategic planning and asset utilisation measures. I assist clients on estate management and lease consultancy terms as well as development agreements.

I am actively involved in dispute resolution and have acted as an Independent Expert or Arbitrator on a wide range of complex rent review, development and valuation issues. I have represented clients in compulsory purchase cases on a variety of significant claims.

My clients include Scottish Power, SSE, EDF, Eon, International Power, Universities of Edinburgh, Aberdeen Aggregate Industries, Hansen Aggregates, Barr Ltd, AG Barr and Standard Life.



  • I’ve given compulsory purchase advice on a large retail development at the St James Centre, Edinburgh. This advice required an in-depth knowledge of land compensation and secured a significant sum for our client.
  • I provided development valuation advice on a strategic waterside development site in Clydebank, Glasgow. A very complex and large site phasing produced a flexible valuation solution allowing our client to utilise in several bespoke ways.
  • I provided overlapping arbitration advice on ground lease properties in Aberdeen. This set the benchmark levels for many properties in and around Aberdeen.
