Professional consultants covering legal conveyancing and valuation can apply for works valued under £1 million.

With JV North members offering homes for sale through Right to Buy and Shared Ownership tenures (in addition to Affordable Rent) a wide range of consultants are needed.

This means as well as traditional consultants such as architects and quantity surveyors, members need to be able to call off the services of professionals with the necessary skills to help sell properties too.

The following were appointed in stage one for works valued at £1 million and over:

Ten employer’s agents have also been selected: AA Projects Ltd, Anderton Gables, Arcus Consulting, CPC Project Services, Identity Consult, Savills, Simon Fenton Partnership, Tozer Gallagher, WYG Consultancy and Wilkinson Cowan Partnership.

A total of eight architects were appointed: AEW Architects, Arcus Consulting, Bernard Taylor Partnerships, BYA Ltd, Halsall Lloyd Partnership, John McCall Architects, Michael Dyson Associates Ltd and Paddock Johnson Partnership.

Four principal designers were chosen: Derek Evans Partnership, John McCall Architects, Nicol Thomas and WYG.
