Urban development


Economic pressures mean that urban development projects are feeling the need to focus on capital development, but those same pressures have caused a drop in global land values, and there is less of an appetite to lend money from the major banks and investors.

Despite these challenges, we are continuing to deliver regeneration in some of the most deprived areas of the world through:


  • new and innovative funding models to release equity into stalled schemes
  • processes and systems that drive down costs and increase the value projects deliver
  • working with our sustainability team to bring about efficiencies in revenue spend to free up capital for investment
  • help with internal efficiency targets to focus on the outputs and maintain these even with reduced internal operational costs

By working closely with our clients and sharing our insight into the urban development market across the world, we have adapted to the changing environment. Our team offers more than just project management and cost management: they understand the social infrastructure and urbanism agenda whatever your location.

“We appointed Turner & Townsend to the project at a time when the masterplan for the area was still being developed in consultation with the local community. The fact that Turner & Townsend are still working with us on the project some seven years later is a testament in itself to the quality of service that has been on offer”
