Public Sector

Gerald Eve is a firm of international property consultants based in the UK operating under the regulation of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

We provide independent, intelligent and relevant advice based on detailed market knowledge and sector understanding. Together we have the resource, experience and relationships to deliver the best property solutions for your business.

At a time when state spending is under scrutiny and pressure as never before, the property strategies of public sector bodies and organisations cannot afford to be anything but exceptional. Budgets are squeezed, cutbacks are made, and yet the scope of services must be maintained; aligning real estate portfolios with property requirements is a skilled and necessary task.

Over the last ten years, Gerald Eve has advised over 250 central and local Government organisations. This work has given us a strong understanding of the financial and legislative framework under which the public sector operates. The firm has advised on a wide range of issues including development, planning, valuation, viability, rates, rented housing and partnership working, all directed towards improving the efficiency of their portfolios.

In recognition of our experience and resources Gerald Eve has been appointed to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework as a National supplier.

In addition to central and local government clients, Gerald Eve is widely recognised as a leading real estate advisor to the university sector and the NHS and has considerable experience in dealing with portfolios of complex, ‘specialised’ properties.

In parallel, our experience in the private sector allows the firm to provide an innovative and consultative approach to problems, which can equally be applied to public property. As the recently-crowned National Adviser of the Year at the Estates Gazette Awards, Gerald Eve has been recognised for the benefits it brings to clients from all spheres and sectors.

Gerald Eve has been appointed on a number of other property consultancy frameworks including: Homes & Community Agency Property & Multi-disciplinary; Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation; London Development Agency (now GLA); Olympic Park Legacy Company (now London Legacy Development Company); Manchester City Council; and Cumbria County Council.
