Based in East Devon and operating across England, we're a team of highly interdisciplinary property agents and consultants with experience across the entire property field.
We're passionate about our work, and our number one priority is you. We know that every problem has a solution, but not every solution will fit you, your home, or your business. That's why, at Build Consultants, we work outside the box and in uncharted waters to understand your circumstances and find the route that serves you best - today, and for years to come.
We believe...
Property shouldn't be a burden - for you or your business. Our homes aren't just empty shells; they're an embodiment of who we are, and how we live - and they should be designed and built, from day one, to adhere to that. Offices, warehouses or workshops, meanwhile, can be one of the biggest costs for businesses of any size - which is why we'll always strive to make sure that your property will work for you, producing real returns and securing the future for you and your business.
Our property and our planet are inextricably linked. Our logo, the Banyan Tree, is the national tree of India, with long, deep roots and branches that symbolise the country's unity. Every aspect of the tree is useful to the communities that it is found in: providing shelter and protection from the sun, a variety of medical uses, and as a focal point for gatherings or meetings or classroom lessons. It also makes a great playroom, sitting on or climbing through the branches and swinging from the vines. It's a natural resource that's sustainably harnessed for the benefit of mankind - a philosophy that we seek to embed in everything we do.
No problem can be solved by one individual or one discipline alone; just as the sciences can't function without the arts, successful property projects need a huge range of specialisms and experience to ensure they're the best they can be. At Build Consultants, we abide by this principle; our team's experience spans fields throughout the property sector and beyond, encompassing sustainable development, civil engineering, business management, and much more - and where our core team doesn't have the right specialism, we have a close-knit team of associates on standby to make sure we can put together the right team for your project.
