Former Whittingham Hospital, Preston

Preston City Council

Hive enjoy adding value to client’s projects in a wide range of areas and green infrastructure management strategies is one such example.


Through liaising with the estate managers and site managing agents, Hive are able to advise on the feasibility of proposals for the management of green infrastructure and areas in which there may be potential sensitivities around costs throughout the establishment of a site specific management company.


Working alongside estate management cost consultants, Hive created an overarching financial model that will inform the viability of a future site wide management company and the likely future service charges that residents will incur with large, well landscaped and complex sites such as Whittingham Hospital.
