Our capabilities allow us to take our customer’s need for new space, delivering right through to construction and opening.

We hold good working relations with landowners, funding partners, local authorities, occupiers and businesses, as we resolve complex and sometimes conflicting issues to generate a positive outcome.


It takes persistence, creative enthusiasm and technical capabilities to turn ideas into reality, which Simons Developments achieve.

New Opportunities

New Opportunities

Simons Developments, as part of Simons Group, have multi-disciplinary skills with a strong and experienced construction capability which enables us to deliver optimum and least cost development solutions. This integrated offer allows us to provide seamless solutions to our many private clients and local authority partners. Central to Simons Corporate philosophy is a relationship based on a highly inclusive and collaborative approach to delivering multi million pound schemes.

Simons has adopted this approach over many years and has broad knowledge and experience of working successfully in partnership with local authorities, landowners and other statutory stakeholders. The success of this approach is evident by the continued repeat business the company has enjoyed with both operators and other key stakeholders. We have carried out many mixed use retail lead schemes on sites owned by private company’s and owned by local authorities and even in recent challenging times remain very active as can be demonstrated by our workload portfolio with a number of projects currently on site.

We have an enviable track record and can demonstrate a history of building strong relationships, in delivering complicated schemes that include land assembly. Our experience in addressing these schemes has meant that we have needed to deal with challenging planning arguments, significant highways solutions and associated due diligent work that allows us to de-risk the project for all concerned.

In terms of new opportunities we are keen to talk to Agents, Landowners and Local Authorities to discover ways of maximising potential of their land ownership. We will consider well located sites from 1 acre upwards for our retail and mixed use schemes that have proved so successful.

Funding Partners

Funding Partners

We make sure that our schemes are well-conceived and well-let in order to ensure that they remain financially attractive. This often means that we must carefully balance needs and demands so that the end-product is not only right for the local community but that it's also profitable and able to meet partner performance requirements. Our facilitation skills allow us to bring each party together to resolve timescales and budgets realistically and openly.

Simons completes a range of projects from complex town centre schemes to stand alone owner occupied facilities. The mechanisms by which each project is financed will vary from project to project, however our role in the financing will largely be focused on the early stages.

Simons does not have debt, either short or long-term; and this is a fundamental plank of its business philosophy. As a result we have relationships with some of the UK's most well known and well established Pension Funds who buy our projects at an early stage and then finance the various elements of the delivery. Funds with whom we have completed projects include:

  • Standard Life
  • Invista
  • Kandahar
  • Prudential
  • Aberdeen Assest Management
  • ING REIM (BHS previously)
  • Rockspring
  • Bishopsgate Investment Management
