'If you plan a project well from the beginning, and take the right advice at the right time, you can achieve real results,' says Julie Teal, who heads up the construction team at Withers.
‘We can help you with the formalities of designing and building an asset you’ll be happy with not only at completion but also in the future as an investment. That’s true whether it’s a personal or a commercial project.’
Contract drafting and negotiation are major aspects of our service, but we also provide project support whenever needed, helping you to find solutions to practical and contractual problems during the course of the works. Our institutional and commercial projects include world class research and teaching facilities for hospital charities, the development of a 4,850 sq ft flagship store for Tory Burch on Milan’s Via della Spiga, commercial/residential ‘mixed use’ schemes throughout London, bespoke office fit out, gallery and performance space new build and refurbishment.
No project is too ambitious: with a particular strength in leisure, we have drafted framework agreements and call-off contracts to deliver sports infrastructure throughout the UK including artificial grass pitches, training and changing room facilities, helped to deliver new stadia and reconfigure arenas. As Soho House creates new venues around the world from Chicago to Istanbul to London, we have also created a variety of construction agreements specifically tailored to the client’s needs – often as a developer or contractor in its own right but also when collaborating with investors, other developers and individuals.
Because we act for dynamic, creative business leaders and entrepreneurs, we often find that our private clients want to do major work that brings them into the domain of professional developers. We’ve helped to turn an English manor house into a hotel, drafted engineering contracts for landowners to convert agricultural waste to renewable energy and guided wealthy families through the early stages of establishing development portfolios.
Whether you’re motivated by tax or investment concerns, or interested in working with the most innovative designers on a highly personal project, we can help you to get the emphasis right, creating contracts that meet your exacting standards. We know how banks and institutional investors view development risk and what makes a project ‘bankable’ – many of our documents are prepared with this in mind. As a global firm we are adept at working with international clients and have supported projects throughout Europe, the US, Middle East and Asia.
