residential feng shui Our advisory originally encapsulated a prospective Build to Rent scheme on the site with the store having become redundant. The work included a demographic analysis of the area to establish the viability as a rental product. Following a period of consultancy advice, the fund decided to sell the asset. Our consultancy and advisory work expanded in to an agency position for the sale of the site. The work undertaken underpinned the alternative use potential and ultimately the site was sold to a Build to Rent developer. We originally acted for our client on the acquisition of this first generation student investment in the centre of Luton directly opposite the train station. The site offered multiple opportunities on the expiration of the leases including comprehensive redevelopment for tall buildings or the refurbishment of the existing properties. We explored the potential for a variety of residential investment exits across the blocks. A planning application was submitted, and granted on appeal, to change the use of the blocks from student to residential through refurbishment and reconfiguration of the cluster flats. We gave our client in depth research and demographic advice to identify the most appropriate site locations to be included in a BTR Single Family Housing portfolio. This advice also identified the optimum unit numbers and sizes to to appeal to residents and avoid absorption concerns. Our instruction included investment and sale structuring advice as well as marketing strategy. We worked with our client to appoint a professional team, including planning consultants and architects, to asses a variety of scenarios including conversion and extension of the existing office buildings to residential, as well as the comprehensive re-development of the site. We provided feasibility analysis of various scenarios and informed strategy, which led to obtaining prior approval to convert the existing buildings to residential ahead of a wider marketing campaign. This resulted in a successful unconditional sale.
1966, when he became the head of the Council of Regents for Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology. The initial aim for the institute to serve as a career training and vocational school was reflected by its early enrolment, with the majority of its early students being enrolled in continuing education part-time night school programs, as opposed to a full-year academic stream. Initially, plans were made to house the institute entirely within the Toronto Normal School building but the rapid growth of the student population made such plans impossible. Toronto Normal School (though its portico façade was kept). A number of other buildings were later built surrounding the courtyard. The Ryerson Polytechnical Institute Act was passed by the provincial government in 1963 to reorganize the institution. The nursing programs of three hospitals were transferred to the institution, the first one to be offered in a post-secondary institution in Canada. In 1993, the institute became a full polytechnic university and renamed Ryerson Polytechnic University, expanding the mandate of the institution to include scholarly research.

The findings of the Hackitt report have encouraged a new way of thinking about high-rise building safety and advocates the need to consider buildings as complex systems and to provide periodic safety cases that demonstrate building safety is being maintained. The shift in how safety cases are being applied in the housing sector is relatively new, however, Adelard’s expertise in this area draws from its many years of experience within nuclear, healthcare and rail sectors, amongst others. As an example of applying safety case expertise in the rail sector, Altran UK – a specialist rail provider – enlisted Adelard to present a clear safety argument covering engineering management, development of products, alongside the expansion of generic safety cases. Within the civil nuclear sector, Adelard researches and develops approaches for the assurance of computer-based systems and supports the industry using the claims-arguments-evidence approach to develop safety cases. This has included contracts with the Control & Instrumentation Nuclear Industry Forum (CINIF), EDF Energy, AWE and Urenco. Adelard also regularly undertakes independent assessments of smart devices for use in power plants. A key tool for some of these assessments is the Emphasis tool, which is maintained by Adelard. This allows assessments to be recorded, and evidence maintained. New infusion pumps in the medical sector require a safety case as part of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(K) submission process. Adelard regularly supports manufacturers in providing training, consultancy and the ASCE software tool to develop a safety assurance case and achieve successful submission to the regulator.
