Property specialists introduce new consultancy to the market

Leading property and built environment experts from the North West have joined forces to create Zerum Consult, a new consultancy with a holistic approach to development management, planning and sustainable building design.

Directors; Paul Devine, Anthony Kilbride, Gary Neville, Mike Ralph and Ged Tivey are behind numerous high profile UK construction projects and will lead the business, which will offer planning, project and development management together with low carbon building design, from its Manchester headquarters.

Having worked on some of Britain’s biggest and most well-known projects, including MediaCityUK, Old Trafford Supporters’ Club, Al Jazeera at the Shard and Leeds’ Thorpe Park development, Zerum Consult’s team is among the most experienced in the country.

The new consultancy, which is borne of a merger between King Associates, a building services design and energy solutions consultancy, and RED Property Services, a planning, project and development management specialist, marks the creation of a unique offering designed to meet the evolving and increasingly diverse needs of the property market.

Anthony Kilbride, managing director at Zerum Consult, commented:

“The property industry is currently enjoying its best period of growth in two years. As the sector continues to pick up pace and confidence returns to the market, it’s clear the environment is right for us to launch a new type of consultancy – one that combines unparalleled expertise with a unique approach and dedication to the creation of future-proofed developments. With this new offering, Zerum Consult is leading the way in delivering a more intelligent future for the built environment.”

Zerum Consult is the latest brand from Zerum Group, which creates, invests in and incubates businesses with a passion for a smarter future.
