Brownfield Redevelopment

Rapleys were instructed to carry out a technical due diligence assessment ahead of land acquisition from the current land owner. This report informed the Client of potential ground, utility, built and boundary constraints, de-risking the site for future development.

The project

Rapleys Land Development Project Management were appointed at feasibility stage by Legal and General SBTR to assess a brownfield site in Swindon against the criteria of a “clean and serviced” site.

This study identified contamination, boundary, utility and ecology disputes which would have been absorbed by the Client if not captured ahead of the land sale.

Our solution

Following the discovery of misalignments to the “clean and serviced” site definition, Rapleys scope was extended to liaise with the current land owner and derive a Buyers and Sellers Works Schedule. This document contained an agreed set of responsibilities which each party have a obligation for fulfilling, using best endeavours, by an agreed time frame.

The Buyers and Sellers report can be used as a legally binding document in the land sale agreement to ensure cost sharing and work apportionment is acknowledged and mutually achieved by both parties.
