Kitto Developments is the land and property division of Kitto Group PLC. Kitto identify, evaluate and promote sites for commercial developments including retail, office, industrial, primary care, care home and leisure uses.
Kitto are able to deliver a broad range of development projects for both the private and public sectors. Services include site finding and acquisition, overseeing the planning process, finding and engaging occupiers (freehold or leasehold) and implementing the construction project. Typical projects include:
- New build / refurbishment of medical centres
- New build / refurbishment of retail units
- Development of residential care homes
- New build leisure centres, nurseries or community centres
- Development of industrial units
- Development of offices
- Development of affordable housing accommodation
Kitto use their own internal experience of the South West property market alongside long-standing market relationships to assist in finding and securing suitable sites. Negotiations for site acquisition then proceed following a thorough site evaluation.
Recently, some of Kitto’s focus has been working with existing general practice surgeries that require expansion to new premises. This has included delivering a turn-key solution for five new surgeries in the South West, each delivered on time and in budget, whilst working with the practice to obtain funding through the complex arrangements within the NHS.
Kitto are able to forward-fund the development when the end-user requires a lease, or deliver the project on a sale/purchase arrangement as the occupier prefers. In any arrangement, Kitto undertakes the initial work and due diligence on a speculative basis, allowing the project to proceed without the end-user spending significant sums before a strong business case has been prepared, evaluated and approved. Where a lease is preferred, Kitto will forward-fund the development and sell to an investment company on completion of the project.
During the project delivery process, Kitto, in tandem with their consultants and supply chain, deliver a project solution that remains affordable and viable whilst ensuring every development is carefully conceived, planned and designed to maximise value.
Kitto Group provides a complete turn-key service from the very earliest concept stage, through site identification and acquisition to ‘design and build’ of the new building completed on time and within budget to high quality standards.
