I work on various issues for Kevin McCloud's development company - a nose to tail approach that runs the gamut from site negotiation, consultation and planning exercises, oversight of construction and delivery and resident liaison throughout. Our developments focus on the need to turn the standard developer model on its head in the drive to deliver high quality, affordable, beautiful and sustainable homes.
